This week I completed the binding on my latest mystery for my group MysteryQuilts4Military. My timing was perfect as I completed quilting and stitching down the binding, just in time for the “big reveal” on the site. This is one of my simpler mysteries. I offered two border finishes, and I used the simpler one on my sample (I have used the same optional border before–it has not gone untested).
I also traveled down to Louisiana and helped my daughter come back for the break between her summer and fall sessions. So that was two full days I was traveling.
And then there is the poison ivy. I figure I was exposed on Saturday, first breaking out Monday. Now it seems I have new spots every day. Warning–the picture is pretty bad. It has started to blister up and one blister in particular is about the size of a quarter. The whole area is swollen, but it doesn’t itch. It just feels like my leg is on fire. Nothing has made a dent in this stuff so far. Am considering calling the doctor’s office, but as a kid I had poison ivy so many times and I know the best healer is just time.
