Snow Days Block 13

Whew! It's been a hectic two weeks... and I honestly don't know how June happened so quickly? ;-) In another 25 days, the year will be half over! But, don't let that little tidbit of information pressure anybody into enjoying the Summer that much MORE INTENSELY!!! lol! :-)

Actually, I'm about two weeks into recuperating from a mild Pneumonia. Yep. I did not have a fever. I just felt totally drained of energy, very tired (but could not sleep), and a general feeling of "something's just not right"... so, I went to the doctor's just expecting him to tell me I was imagining things... but, after a breathing test and chest x-ray... doc said my lungs had fluid in them and my lungs were functioning at a third of what they should be. Hmmmm.... ? Never had pneumonia before... so this was a huge surprise! So, the past two weeks have been slow and restful... just finished all the meds today and am breathing much better! :-)

Block 13 of Snow Days managed to get completed this past weekend! :-) This one was a biggie that measures about 9" x 15". Took quite a few (enjoyable) hours. Block 14 (which is the final embroidered block) is much smaller and should be a quick stitch! I'm looking to start the piecing in a week or two...

Beginning with the Memorial Day weekend, and continuing with the parades taking place on streets lined with Old Glory and Summertime now upon us... I've been having a craving for the red, white and blue... and strawberries...

Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!


  1. Great block, lots of detail. I'm craving the fresh strawberries too. All chopped up, lightly sugared on ice cream. ;)

  2. Hi Sharon,
    I think pneumonia must be making it's rounds. My hubby Greg and I had viral pneumonia, just getting over it. We were both in the hospital for two days, him in one room and me next door. I used to holler over...."Greg are you ok"....and the nurse came in and told me to be quiet and let him get some rest!!! After antibiotics and inhalers coming out the gazoo we're both finally starting to feel better and we can breathe again. He started it and I got it the next day. Not our finest hour!!!


  3. Sharon ~
