Gettin' Better on Easy Street

I should have posted and linked this up to Quiltville's Easy Street Mystery on Saturday as that's when I finished them all, but I've been under the weather.  This is just a sampling. 

Stacked Flying Geese, 3.5" square

While I was making them, well I just wasn't feeling well. On Friday I had felt the chest congestion & tightness begin to settle in.  And it progressively got worse.  I didn't get to the 3.5" squares though, maybe this evening.  In fact, I've spent the last few days spending a lot of time shivering, coughing, sleeping and just plain feeling cruddy.  If it was a flu, it was mild compared to the flu I had back around 1980, I still remember how much I wanted to die at that time, I felt so badly.  I haven't felt like that with this one, but boy, I sure haven't had energy for anything. Last night I went to bed early after smearing Mentholatum all over my chest, hacked all night and felt so bad yet this morning that I almost went to the doctor.  But after a shower, breakfast, lots of rehydrating water and a nap I started feeling a little better.  I hope this is an upward swing from now on...I am tired of being sick and tired.


  1. Hi
    You might try the Vicks on the bottom of your feet with an old pair of sox!I had that crud for almost a week and did the vicks trick and presto within 24 hours I was back to normal. My friend who gave it to me is still suffering after 2 weeks with it.

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon and that you are able to enjoy the holidays with your family, Lee.

    Take care -


  3. Sure hope you get over that crud soon. Christmas will be here before you know it. Your geese look great. I just love red, white & blue quilts. Happy Sewing!

  4. Love your color scheme, and I certainly hope you start feeling better!

  5. Oh Lee, I'm sorry to hear that you've succumbed to the winter crud. Boo!!! Here's to hoping "Easy Street" isn't just the name of a quilt mystery you're working on! :)
