friends sewing day

I was up early with stuffy sinuses this morning. It's been going on for  a while, and I've been really achy all over. This is a sign to me that something is going on. It's possible that I've developed an infection, so I've upped my cortisone a bit. Also, I researched some on the net yesterday about antibiotics and recurring sinus infections which is why I've decided to try some natural remedies. I'm breathing in steam infused with garlic, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oils, and rinsing with the Neti Pot (which I highly recommend).
 I've just started a spinach, leek and potato soup for supper which we will eat with guacamole and baked scoops after our yoga class to-night. Now that I've got supper underway, I can get at the rest of the day.
I've got my bag packed for a sewing day at a friends house. We have these every once and a while. sometimes we bring sewing machines, sometimes hand sewing. A few of the women jsut took a workshop on penny rugs so I expect to see lots of pennies today. I'm taking a hand project that I'm working o for a Christmas present, so again no pictures.
Here is a photo of one of the quilts that I photographed while at the guild UFO day Saturday. It's a 'quilt as you go' quilt which I'm not sure I would have the patience to do, but it does save the need to have it machine quilted in the end. Isn't it pretty?

I have had the stuffy sinuses too with the weather change and the house being drier with the heat on now and then. I think natural remedies are the way to go unless it is an infection, but even that would benefit from the steam. Even eating soup gives enough steam to clean the sinuses. Just a change in our routines from summer.
The pastels in the crazy piecing are so soothing. I usually do it with brights. This gives me an idea...
