Well, I haven't been blogging because I've been sick. I still am. I got sinusitis in France and finally saw a doctor in Singapore who gave me some antibiotics and painkillers. I finished those last Saturday and the pain that night was terrible so I saw an emergency doctor in Wanganui on Sunday and got a couple of courses of different antibiotics. One of those is making me nauseous and the pain is still bad. My top teeth on one side of my jaw are numb and I'm wondering if I should see my own doctor (or my dentist). I can't concentrate on work but I'm getting some done in between naps. I've put all the plant orders that arrived while we were away and that will go out next month onto the database - and I've done the first row of the Row by Row Quilt that our club is doing over the next 7 months.
The owner of the quilt sets the theme and colour, does the first row and hands it on. Five more people will add a row, each 8" x 48" and we of course, will add a row each on five other quilts, always following the theme and colour set by the quilt owner. Here is the picture I have used for my theme and colour scheme and the first row of my quilt. The appliqué blocks are original blocks drawn from photos taken by my husband and the picture is an original painting of Poppies by a Wanganui artist, Rob Chamberlain.
