A day off....

I am going to treat myself to a day off today....and what better day for it than International Women's Day! 

I've been bothered by back pain the last two weeks that has escalated until yesterday when I had to leave my guild meeting before it even started :(

I think I may feel a little better this morning (finally!), what a relief!!....unless it's just the fact that I have taken a very strong painkiller. We'll see around lunchtime when the painkiller wears off. 

The last couple of weeks have been extremely busy, which hasn't helped matters much. So I'm definitely going to take today and maybe even tomorrow to rest. I may even treat myself to binge-watching Call the Midwife, which I've been wanting to do for a long time.

If I feel up to it, I'd like to do a few blocks of my 150 Canadian Women quilt. I'm quite behind, but I don't think it will take much to eventually catch up. I think they are up to about Block 50, and as you can see here I've done only nineteen...

It's even been difficult lately to do my morning applique, but I have managed to do a few wee blocks for the next border of my Midnight at the Oasis. I quite like doing these blocks!

I'm slowly making progress in getting closer to finishing my Happy Days quilt....which means I'll get to start Sarah Fielke's 2017 BOM, Down the Rabbit Hole!

Here is my most recent block....I love it!...

Hmm, sorry for the fuzzy pictures, maybe it's indicative of how I feel this week :(

I am linking up today with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social and with Silly Mama Quilts for WIPs- Works in Progress.

I had planned on telling you about the wonderful 25th Anniversary Tea put on by the Haldimand Quilters' Guild on Monday but that will have to wait for another posting as I'm ready for a bit of a lounge on the couch.

To all you wonderful women out there in blogdom....have a great International Women's Day!


  1. Hope the rest and watching Call the Midwife are effective cures for your bad back.Your projects all look very colourful and so neat :-)

  2. hope you feel better!

    love your projects!

    thanks for linking up!

  3. Back pain is absolutely awful! I hope yours clears up as quickly as possible!
    I've been saving the Canadian Women patterns, but I haven't done any of the blocks. Yours are looking great, even if you're a little behind...
