Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Six Degrees, not six years ......

The personal project I am working on is entitled "Six Degrees" but it's not supposed to take me six years to make it!

Today is the last day of my self-inflicted vacation.  I spent it the same way I spent it last year, sick in the bed with a wicked head cold.  Someone remind me to take some preventative measures next year the week BEFORE Thanksgiving.  Thanks ......

I'm feeling better today (although this posting is the last thing I will do before taking a much needed rest).

I spent several hours working on a project that I have had the fabric and pattern for for almost 4 years.

It's Six Degrees by Miss Rosie's (aka Carrie Nelson) .


I chose to make mine with blues, reds and golds of all Civil War reproduction fabrics.  Here is what Carrie's looks like.


I cut all the pieces and pieced 12 blocks ...... only 56 more to go! 

Blessings, Cathi

Winter colds are horrible. I hope you get all your intended work done and can relax - something us crafters just don't know how to do though.
Beautiful quilt! Love the blue's.
Blessings this holiday season,
Karen

Hope you feel better soon! Love your quilt blocks - even if it is taking forever!

I thought you were saying it was six degrees outside. LOL! I was thinking that would be pretty cold for your area. I am sorry you aren't feeling well.
