In the pink

Okay, so feeling better is called "in the pink" and it has nothing to do with why my May Linus quilt is so pink.

Thanks so much for all your well wishes. We are feeling better, although both Rob and I found ourselves still tired this weekend. I could do some stuff, but would find myself winded and I still have a nasty cough. So, I spent my time piecing and quilting and sitting relatively still.

This Linus quilt is almost pieced. It is an effort to move as many of these large pieces of pink fabric out of stash as I can. I had the 60 half triangle squares left over and I have a ton of pink 2" squares, so I whipped out the little 4 patches and I cut the rest as 6 1/2" squares to fill it in. A couple of brown borders and some other leftovers that have pink and brown in them will complete this one. I'm going to piece a back out of large cuts of pink fabric.

I bought all this pink when Sydney came to live with us and her color was pink. Now, her color is purple and I can't get her to even consider using any of this pink fabric, so am glad to let it go to Linus where some little girl will love it. I hope.

While I was taking it slow over the weekend, I would wander out into the garden and sit in the sun. This abundance of bloom is what my garden gave me as a "get well". We had incredible storms on Thursday and everything is rushing to bloom before the water runs out, I think.

Okay, so that's it for me. Still behind reading blogs. Too much to do, too little time. But, I'll catch up eventually. Take care and hope you're having a great Monday.

I think every girl's going through that fase. Our daughter doesn't want pink anymore either. I still love pink, it's such a beautiful quilt.
