I quilted.

First doll quilt quilted. I'm calling this one "daisy blue". I quilted in the ditch and put a daisy in each square. I'm pretty good at quilting in the ditch (my quilting stand-by!), but the freemotion daisies were the practise pieces! They're not too bad.

Bunches of people at our house are sick. We spent the weekend in bed wishing we could get up and do something! Sore throats and headaches, tonsilitis, and one glandular fever wannabe. (We find out the blood test results this afternoon.) Today I have felt well enough to sew, so the world is improving!
