I did end up going to my doctor’s yesterday. I couldn’t stand my headache for another second! She suggested more sleep, relax, less stress, diet and exercise. Even good stress…aka A-1 could be the culprit. I think many of you suggested the same things because quilters happen to be the smartest people ever! 🙂 Since I was too deep in my migraine, any prescription meds would do me no good at this point, so guess what they did for me….I received 2 pain shots!! Guess were they put them…I’ll give you a hint…NOT in my arm. Yep, you guessed it…my tail end!! I haven’t had shots there in years! Boy did they hurt too!!! Wow! So instead of a pain in my head, I had a pain in my _ _ _…bottom. LOL! I will say they were miracle workers. I took two pain meds before bed that rendered me unconscious and I woke up this morning with no headache. I feel a little groggy, but no pain. Yippeeee!!!
Since I haven’t been quilting much, I thought I would share a quilt I made as a wedding shower gift for my SIL Heather and her husband Troy. Heather is Scott’s sister that lives in California and stayed with us on Christmas. All four of us were in the wedding. I had the honor of being her Matron of Honor. I felt they deserved an extra special wedding gift. They just treasure it.
It is a Eleanor Burns, Quilt In A Day Dresden Plate pattern from the book Egg Money Quilts. I FMQ on my domestic machine.
It was my first attempt at quilting feathers. I did all the quilting freehand.
I quilted and finished this quilt while I was on a weekend retreat in Shipshewana in March of 2009. It was such a fun quilt to make. As with all Eleanor’s patterns, it came together perfectly. I love it. It’s one of my favorites!
Thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments regarding my pesky migraines. Hopefully, I won’t have to blog about them again. Oh and I did make an appointment with the eye doctor for Friday just in case…
