Christmas was spent feeling ill. However I started on the steroids on Boxing Day and now am feeling human again, so all is good.
I have no idea how the Christmas break works in your part of the world but here in the UK many people cease work on the 23rd and go back on the first Monday after New Year. So today is the day things get back to normal. TV schedules will no longer be filled with old James Bond films and the News will not be little 5-10 minute segments at irregular times. I think a lot of people who are lonely over Christmas feel it even more because of this break in scheduling. I just find it mildly annoying.
I went into my studio to get going again on the quilting front on Friday but it had become a dumping ground over the holidays and it took a couple of days to get it into a place where work could take place. Thank heavens I had kept all the fabrics for the Di Ford Mystery quilt in one box. Even so I had added other chintz, and other repros to the box so it took a little digging to get the right fabrics out. (and there are a lot of them in this final round.) I don't have an urgent need to finish this quilt but unless I get the piecing done and the appliques prepped nothing happens in the evenings on this particular quilt when I find it relaxing to do some hand work.
Meanwhile my go to mindless handwork has been piecing the 1/2" hexagons.
