art should not exist for the sake of itself

I am sending tomorrow. Sorry for the lateness. My family decided to stay an extra day and I forgot my camera and mailing box.  It'll be there in no time Smiley

Aw, thanks buddies!  I feel a lot better today.  The headache started to creep back this afternoon but I took some Aleve and it went away.  Just the tail-end of it, I guess.  Yeah, the vision in one eye definitely makes it really difficult to do the corners of the binding.  Eek.  They aren't very visible, but I have definitely done nicer corners on previous quilts.  Luckily, they are the least prominent part of the whole thing and I am happy with how the rest of it turned out.  Cheesy

I've been getting migraines for well over a decade, and the older I've gotten, the less frequent they've become, but they still knock me out every time.  There really isn't any rhyme or reason to them, unfortunately.  I wish I could find a common link, but for all the years keeping a headache journal, it's done me no good in that respect.  I do appreciate the suggestions and the anecdotes, though!  It helps to know what others have tried so I can keep it in mind.

On a crafty front, I did finish up last night and shipped chrsdx's quilt this afternoon from work, so it should be to her in a couple of days!  Yay!

I sent yesterday but forgot to log in and post that I had done so. Whoops.

I can't wait to find out if zombiekilla thinks it's worth the wait!

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I received from chrsdx, and I am really not worthy of the beautiful package she sent to me!  Our quilts were in completely different styles and I thought I did a nice job on what I sent her, but wow... I am in awe and now I feel very anxious!  It's gorgeous.  Wow.  I will post pics in a little bit, once I find the memory card that my daughter hid somewhere.

I finally sent! Grin  I had a hard time sending it away  Cry ...... after working on it for 80+ hours I kind of got attached! Now the nerves set in as to if onegroovyday will like it. I am not the best hand sewer so it is not perfect......no one needs to look at the back! haha  Wink

80+ hours?!  I devoted many hours to mine, but nowhere near 80.  Sheesh!  And hand-sewing, while it is rarely ever as uniform as machine-sewing, is so much more brag-worthy.  No offense to any of us machine-quilters.  Grin  I am sure she will love it and appreciate it for its immense time involvement and obvious love.  Wow.  80 hours.  Wow.

HAHA! this is the first thing I have ever quilted by hand, I hate using a needle and thread!  Wink I might have changed my mind about that though, it is very therapeutic. It was at least 80 hours, when you see it you will know why, I really wanted to keep it! I won't be doing any more hand sewing for awhile, I need to get the feeling back in the tip of my index finger and thumb!  Cheesy

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am leaving today for a short vacation!  I am taking the train to Berlin for a few days!  I won't have computer access while I am gone, so I can spend more time with my family!
Family Fun!
So don't worry if you don't hear from me for a while!  I will be back online and back to crafting on July 22nd!! Wink
