Two For One

So I'm not feeling so hot again today. Accidental exposure to household chemicals. (We're throwing that stuff out right now so it doesn't happen again!) It's not real bad, but I do have an intense headache. This has been a rough week in terms of my physical well being. It's interesting to me that it sort of seems to run in cycles. I was doing great for several consecutive days and now I've had several consecutive days of less-than-wonderful-ness. The worst part of these headaches is that I can't think. I want desperately to sew up a little Halloween doll quilt, just for the fun of it, but I can't for the life of me come up with a pattern I want to do! Well, there are lots of patterns that appeal to me. Maybe it's more a matter of not having the energy to follow through once I choose one...

I finally put a binding on my Orphan Train quilt yesterday. Sewing down binding is a blissfully mindless project that was exactly what I needed. The catalyst for putting on the binding was another quilt made by a member of my local quilt guild for the Quilts With Love project. It needed a binding but no-one else in the guild had the time to do it. So I volunteered. I had a reaction to fumes released when I ironed the fabric while making the binding but sewing it down didn't seem to be a problem. I finished that one up this morning. Now I can surprise them with two quilts instead of just the one when I turn them in this week!

In lieu of pictures of quilts (which hopefully will come later) I leave you with this little assessment of myself. I think these personality quizzes are fun. I've taken a few of them but haven't had the courage to try putting them on my blog before. With DH's help (it wasn't so hard afterall) here it is:

You Are Midnight

You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.
Whether you're a nightowl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.
Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.
You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.

I took the quiz and I am sunrise "You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be."

Ouch -- sorry you haven't been feeling well. Hope you get a few good days (well, more than a few actually) soon! I took the quiz as well -- wouldn't ya know it, I'm a midnight (and if you aren't paying attention to when this was posted -- by my clock it's 2:28 am)
