Easy Street progress - step 1

I've been busy sewing away in the sewing room and have made a bunch of progress this week. Most importantly, I started the Easy Street mystery over at My color choices for this mystery are blue, green, maroon, brown and creams/white. The first step was for oodles of four patches in brown and creams. I have 122 made and need 70 more. I doubt I will get to them this week but at least I have some made before the next step is released on Friday. Oh, I made one of the bindings for the pinwheel too.

I would have made more this afternoon but I scheduled a trip to the doctor. I've had a terrible head cold for 2-3 weeks (yup, I did teach my kids to share - darn it!) and it has morphed into a sinus infection on Sunday/Monday. I've tried the home remedies - the sinus wash- for the last five days and after starting to feel a little better yesterday it is back to painful in the teeth again so it is time to visit the doctor. I did find some kleenex that have a cooling effect this morning. Ohhhh, I LOVE them. I think I will be getting another box or two this afternoon since I'm sure my first one will be gone by then. As I told my kids - at least I am set for the holiday - I'm going to be rudolph for a bit.

Oh my. You have fought this long enough. If you have a sinus infection, you will need some medicine.
Your 4 patch blocks look nice. I have 99 done, myself.
Get well soon!

Maybe it will be good to get all the sickness done and overwith for the holidays? Take good care of yourself!

Ugh, sinus infections are not nice. Lovely 4-patches, and nice colour combo. Looking forward to seeing how this quilt develops.

I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn
