summer of love v summer cold

Good morning folks.
The sun has returned which is cheering me up no end.
I'm pretty sure I have a cold,
I'm not totally convinced,
it could be hay fever.
Though I'm taking tablets and I still feel rough!
Apparently it's a bad year for allergies.
With the celebrations and the doings past
I can concentrate (a little) on the quilt.
Oh geez
let me tell you
the taking out of the papers is 
draining my will to live!!

yes but isn't it worth it....you need to channel how fab the quilt will look as you are sewing on the binding...and the paper removal will be just a hazy memory!

Get well soon Clare! I bet I would enjoy taking out the papers from the patchwork. Sometimes I get much joy from the mundane!!! x

It's going to be great, though! I have a quilt story on my blog at the moment...

Get well soon. I've loved your last few posts although I didn't have the time to comment. Now Son 1 and I are both off school/work with a 'dizzy' lurgy of some sort, so I'm taking a bit of time to catch up!

Hope you are feeling better soon Clare. Glad you are having some time with your quilt, even if it is draining taking the papers out! Somebody suggested punching a hole in the paper before sewing so that you can then just hook it out when you need to remove it. Don't know if this makes it easier?

Glad you liked our robins! :-)

Keep going you are doing so well! Not nice that you are not feeling good - hope you feel revived soon. I started getting hayfever when I moved house 18 years ago - I sympathise!
