We were all ready for an early weekend. Drama Teen missed school Monday, a respiratory virus according to the doctor. DT felt well enough to go to school on Tuesday. By Tuesday night she's got muscle aches, a headache, and a very upset stomach. The stomach bug was bad, she wasn't able to keep even water down on Wednesday and much of Thursday. Thankfully she was able to manage jello and a bit of Sprite by Friday morning and actually ate a light dinner Friday night. My hands are raw from all the hand washing the last few days, I definitely do not want to catch that bug. I'm hoping this is it for illnesses this winter.
In spite of my nursing duties this week, I did get some Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing accomplished. I finally got smart and cut a bunch of the black strips for the fan blocks, so all I have to cut to start a new block is the colored strips. That helped move two of the large aqua blocks to the finished list.
The large purple fans from last month also got finished up.
I like the starburst effect when the blocks are laid out this way. The dark center with the two lighter strips on the sides was a deliberate choice. Unfortunately, with the limited palette for the aqua fabrics, it's not going to be as obvious.
Linking up with Angela over at Soscrappy for this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge and with Oh Scrap over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
