Feeling much better, it helps to be on the right antibiotic that actually does kill the infection. However being on antibiotics for a month and a half did a number on my gut, by wiping out all the good bacteria in it so now I am eating extremely healthy, lots of fiber, fruits & veggies to restore the eco system within, LOL.
This week I have working on my backlog/customer quilts that need to be done, should be all caught up within a few weeks, then I can fit some of my own projects in here and there. Which brings me to this question...
WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO? I mean I had planned to work on ALOT of UFOs and work on the quilts for my bare walls and I have not even put a dent into anything I wanted to get done. :0(
Also when did fabric prices get so high? The last time I bought fabric was back in the spring and prices were still reasonable ($8-$9 per yard for regular quilt shop fabric and $10 for batiks, bali pops were $35). I got my Hancocks of Paducah catolog yesterday in the mail and almost fell over by how much prices went up! ($10.99-$11.99 per yard for regular quilt shop fabric, $10.99-$11.99 per yard for batiks and bali pops are now $39.99) YIKES!!! This is not good, 2 years ago I was joking around with my DH, he was concerned about me building up my stash of fabrics (which is still a work in progress BTW), wanting to know why I was buying so much. I told him that I was stocking up because when we retire and on a fixed income I wouldn't be able to buy fabric. Little did I know that I wouldn't have to wait until I was retired because that day is now. Wish I knew what was comming, because I would have bought a whole lot more!!! The bad thing with fabric prices going up, they will never go back down to the older prices. I guess I will be shopping the fabric sales from now on, no more new release fabric lines for me and I can see alot of scrap quilts in my future with pieced backs. It's a good thing I like scrap quilts, lol
