Finishing projects!

I have a couple of projects that I have been trying to finish up this week. I'm in Pat Sloan's Quilt Mash Up group (go here for Pat's blog) and she's currently challenging us to a "May FIU Challenge". Several members are making headway toward finishing projects. I just have three little projects I want to finish............

This is a block from Pat's Farmer's Market Quilt and all I want to do is make into a little wallhanging with the fabrics you see in the picture. I did get the handquilting done around the pots, so at least I got some sewing done tonight.
Then there's this baby quilt that needs only a binding. It's a donation quilt that I started more than a year ago.

The third project that I want to finish is the binding on my pink and green quilt. However, this week did not go as planned so I thought I'd let you know that while I've been "itchin' to stitch", it just hasn't happened. Instead, I find that all I do is itch because I had an allergic reaction to a medication that my doctor prescribed. Yes, it has been an interesting week. Per doctors orders, I stopped taking the medication. For relief from the itching I took Benadryl and that helped some, so did a vinegar bath and lots of calamine lotion. However, it wasn't until after midnight last night that I finally felt I was itching less and finally able to stitch instead of itch! LOL! Sorry, I just couldn't resist. So, if I'm lucky, I'll finish the little wallhanging and the baby quilt by Sunday and then next week, finally I will stitch the binding on my pink and green quilt! I have a personal reason for wanting it finished by the end of next week, so I will get it done!
On another note........as many of you know, Quilt Market is taking place in Minneapolis this weekend. I was actually planning to go today but I'm taking one more day at home to make sure I'm free of this rash and itch. If all goes well, I will be at Market on Saturday. I sure hope so!
Have a great Friday!

I'm so glad to hear that your itching is somewhat better and do hope it's all gone tomorrow so you can make it to Market. I'm sure you will have lots of interesting things to tell us after you go there!

Wow sounds like you have had an interesting tangle with a medication. I hope you will be feeling well enough to endure all those lovely fabrics and patterns :-)

You make such interesting projects. I know that you like to stitch as much as possible.

Life certainly changes your plans when you have to take medicine for the side effects of your medicine. I am glad to hear that the itching is receding.

ACK, nothing worse than having a bad reaction to meds!! Goodness, the itching much have been awful if you needed a vinegar bath!! Glad it's getting better :0)
