We had a lovely weekend in the North Carolina mountains with Brian's family. The weather and days there were beautiful, but unfortunately I was sick with a terrible sinus cold the entire time (I hope no one else caught it!).
Today has been spent in bed and on the couch, trying to get well. I took my copy of Joelle Hoverson's Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts with me to the mountains, and simply couldn't wait another moment to get started on a project when we got home. It's such a beautiful book! The puzzle ball seemed just about the right speed, since there is a lot of hand-finishing involved. It was hard to get a good photo of the finished product through the Day-Quil haze, but it was a fun little project. Next time I would opt for fabrics with a little more contrast between them for the inside and outside of the ball.
