The COVID pneumonia is clearing up slowly. It still hurts to breath on my right side. I just have to go slowly. I am using a walker right now to get around with and that is also a slow process. As much as I want to stay in bed it is necessary for me to be sitting up. So that I do for as long as I can. Yes, it has been a rough couple months but we are all getting through this together. My sisters have been taking care of the two different estates and things are winding up on both of those things. My being sick has just added another concern for everyone. It is great to be home. I am taking a few added vitamins and minerals right now to help get my strength built back up. I started my PT yesterday and OT today. I can't wait until I have the strength to stand at my cutting table and get back to some quilting. I have a block that is partially sewn together that has been there now close to 2 months. Thanks for all the kind thoughts.

Juliab, good to hear from you. So sorry for all you have been through but it sounds like you are on the road to recovery now. I pray you get stronger, day by day.

Just a quick check in to see how you all are and if anyone is working on their Boom blocks. Me, I’m putting together some string blocks made when I was too frazzled with the house sale and move to do anything else. Pic of my progress is below. The house is sold now, yay! We’re pretty well settled into the new place but my sewing room remains a mess. I’m working in it anyway.

Be well and happy, Boomers!

Fun blocks Janice, love how your smashing really sets off the blocks.Glad you are settled in and old house is sold

No sewing for me yet but the sewing room is coming together. We bought a couple dressers from IKEA and they were not the ones we wanted. Dh had partially put together one before I saw it and said oh no. He suggested putting it in sewing room under my cutting table. It fits perfectly, talk about feeling lucky. The room with all my bulk fabric and accessories is still in chaos but working on it a bit everyday. Can’t wait to start sewing again

Lovely strings, Janice! Yay to the house being sold! It looks like all our boomers are getting their ducks in a line with health and home and working on the BOOM blocks is likely to start after Halloween. I don't know when I'll be working with my BOOM blocks. Does that surprise anyone? Quilty hugs, all!

Great string quilt, Janice. The sashings really set it apart.

Congrats on selling your house. I'm actually writing from my new house in Memphis. It's great to have the hard work done. Now I don't have to lift anything heavier than a paintbrush!

I'm loving this cooler weather. Hope all are well....

Congratulations Sewbiz on being in your new home. Do you have a sewing room in Mephis?

I hope everyone is on the road to recovery. Take care of yourself my boom sisters. I’d love to see pictures of the new homes!

I started the 365 100 day organizing project. It gives you a small task to do every day. I’m about halfway through. I figure it will take 150 days to organize the house because we’ve been here for 30 years and the house has more bedrooms and bathrooms then the program budgets for. I think I’m mostly motivated because I paid for the program and I feel guilty if I dont do it. My daughter told me I could pay her instead. and she’d send me jobs.

I dipped my toe into making baby clothes and made reversible jackets for my twin granddaughters. How hard could it be? A Butterick easy pattern, on sale flannel. Hah! I found out my workhorse Janome makes lousy buttonholes. Apparently a known problem. Quilts are easier than baby clothes! We visit the Omaha kids next week.

im back to quilting now working on an applique peacock.

Thank you so much for the beautiful card you sent to me. I definitely made my day! I too am working on a string quilt. Like everything else it has been on hold while I recover. I had OT this morning and am waiting on the PT to get here shortly. I am doing better today than ever, even though I still have a long way to go. I am getting ready to go to the dr. on Wed. That will be a major feat.
I have not started anything with my boom blocks as of yet but it is on my quilting list of things to do.
