Sew Fabulous Hive Week 3 Blog Hop

Hello friends,

Unfortunately, I haven't felt up to posting lately.  I've been in a period of fibro fog.  Those of you familiar with Fibromyalgia will understand, I'm sure.  I've managed to get some work done in my studio, but I'm pretty wiped out afterward.  I have gotten several more Farmgirl Vintage blocks done and I've gotten the tops and bottoms of my son's chevron quilt done.  Tomorrow I'm hoping to move on to sewing the rows together.  My husband told me he didn't make my design board big enough to hold two quilts so I have to get one finished, LOL.  Here's a partial view of the chevron quilt, as well as the FGV blocks I've completed.

Speaking of my sweet husband, he woke me up yesterday, told me he was taking me to lunch and then on to a surprise.  After a lovely lunch, we went to the library where the local quilt guild, Peaks and Pieces, was holding a quilt show.  Here is some of the beautiful work displayed: 

I have to admit, Moody Blues was my favorite and what I voted as Best in Show.  When my son was in marching band, I just loved it when they included a Moody Blues piece for their half-time show.  If you noticed, the tops and bottoms of his chevron quilt are music notes, which l am also using for the backing.

Week 3 - July 13th Sew Fabulous Hive


Hive leaders:


  1. Hi, I hope the fog lifts and you are able to get back into things again. I have a daughter with CFS/ME and Fibro, amongst other things. Fibre art is what keeps her going, and she works at it many hours a day. A lot of people with this diagnosis turn to craft we have observed over here (NZ). Take care of yourself.

    1. Thank you so much Tawa. It sounds like your daughter and I have a lot in common, and I appreciate your understanding. It's amazing how many of those of us with chronic illnesses turn to crafting. This past year is the most productive I have felt in a long time. I have to remind myself not to push on my good days. Thanks again for your comment!
