At this time of year there are so many different challenges starting up for the new year. This year I'm doing the Monthly Make-it Challenge again that I blogged about here and I'm also doing the TUSAL. I'll tell you about TUSAL later in the month but if your interested I have created a separate page on the top bar stating the rules.
I found a challenge for quilters today that I thought you might be interested in....
Colour My World - Colour Your World Challenge? I found it over on a blog called Quilt Matters.
The rules are very easy and open. The basic rule is that you have a main colour that you focus on each month:
January - Red
February - Purple
March - Black
April - Yellow
May - Cyan/Aqua
June - Brown
July - Pink
August - White
September - Orange
October - Grey
November - Blue
December - Green
I'm not a quilter but I thought I could informally follow along and work within these colour guidelines myself for my other little projects that I'm doing.
And, for some of you bloggy friends who have wondered where I have been......I have been SICK...:(
I have had a really bad cold since Christmas. It started with a teeny tiny tickle in my throat and then grew to be a major event. I ended up with this major sinus headache that lasted for about six days...you know the kind...where your brain feels like it's bouncing off the inside of your skull.
I had a doctor's appointment on Monday and he gave me (at no cost) a triamcinolone acetonide aqueous nasal spray. After reading the two page insert explaining all of the possible side effects and the fact that I would have to take the medication for 30 days!!!!!! I decided not to use it. Instead I took two extra strength Tylenol, two big teaspoons full of Buckley's original cough syrup with decongestant, a Reactin and put some Vicks Vapo rub under my nose. I then wrapped my neck with one of those microwave hot wheat bag thingies. I was desperate:(
Next morning no headache:) I had a bit of a twinge in my sinus last night but today I'm feeling almost my old self again:)
So far we have been very lucky this winter. We had our second serious snowfall last night that gave us a dusting of snow this morning. It looks like we may be getting more rain next week so this snow will probably be gone soon:) It's so weird. It feels like spring but it's only January. I'm not complaining:)
