The blocks are finished

I was hoping to catch up today -- I did manage to get all the blocks finished, but today's part will have to wait til tomorrow. Have you ever had a day where your sneeze reflex has kicked into gear and won't stop? I'm having a day like that -- I used to have them more often, but haven't had one in a year or two. I spend all day sneezing, blowing my nose, sneezing, etc... a real pita. So, I feel like I have hay fever or something -- but I have had all the allergy tests and am not allergic to anything -- just my sneeze reflex has gone haywire!

Anyway -- so going to spend some time in the recliner relaxing and hope it stops. I'm too miserable to sew -- how bad is that?!

BTW -- the biopsy went fine yesterday -- very interesting to watch actually. We have to go in tomorrow morning to get the results -- and I'm still convinced it's just a benign cyst.

Note to those that have asked: The floss used for the Pineapple Punchneedle is by Weeks Dyeworks and is in fact overdyed embroidery floss. All of the colors are beautifully overdyed which gives a subtle color change in the pictures.

Love the colors in your Nov. blocks, Joanne! Hope all turns out well with the biopsy...been there, done those. :) Go put your feet up and wait for the sneezes to pass...hope you're feeling much better tomorrow. :)

I love your hour a day block! If the colour on my computer is correct, you are using green and gold around your scrappy centres, right?

Your block makes me think of a warm cozy afternoon in front of the fire place -- something I am often grateful for *s*

Hey! The blocks are looking great! Hope you are feeling better soon. I had what I called an 'old fashioned ' cold a couple of weeks ago--really sucked. But advil, nyquil, and chicken soup helped lots. (plus-- the new Keith Urban CD wouldn't hurt either)
Take Care.

I love the finished block. It's just wonderful colors. I can hardly wait to see them all together.

I used some Weeks' greens. Someone had told me they were not colorfast, so I swished them in hot water and vinegar in a canning jar. Sure enough, the water turned green. After a couple of times doing that, it seemed okay, and when I dried them, the colors were still fine.

Your blocks look really great, I'm feeling like this is a quilt I'd like to make.
I hope all is well with the biopsy results, you're in my prayers.
