Minor Detours

So I've been posting my Civil War blocks that I have gotten done over the last few days, but I had to stop and take a quick detour for two things.

First.

I finished the Cheery Quilt! Yay! The custom quilting on it is beautiful. I basically said that I wanted whatever, and its perfect. The large blocks have large leafy flowers. The strip sashings have loop de loops and the sashing squares have swirls. The border has some sort of an ivy-type leafy/feathery vine. So sue me if I don't know all the proper terms for all these patterns.

So I got the binding done yesterday and here is the finished product!



So magical.

So back to my other detour.

Second.

I have a concussion. I slipped and fell on the ice when I was brushing my car off Sunday morning and hit my head (as well as the rest of my body) on the cold pavement of the parking lot. I had my first ever trip to the ER, and I've been practically useless in lab for the past three days. Oh well. These things happen.

I'm currently in the process of packing up the necessaries to go to Park Ranger Boyfriend's tomorrow and then back home to Michigan! Of course that means I'm taking some of my projects with me as well, because my sister and I scheduled a 20 hour, 8 movie Harry Potter marathon for Boxing Day. If you try to interrupt us, we might be vicious. So starting at 6 AM on the 26th, I'll be thoroughly occupied. But, we will be sewing during our marathon so the next day, after I catch up on sleep, I'll hopefully have something exciting to show!

Merry Christmas to you!
