Slow Sunday Stitching -- One bud at a time

My eyes have been a little blurry with this little bout of Bell's Palsy.  I do have to report that I am seeing some major improvements.  I can use my tongue properly again!  I can eat solid foods.  My speech is not as slurred (just a little slurred.)  I can almost drink from a straw again. 

With my blurry eye (I have a head cold on top of this fun bout.) I have mostly worked on piecing and bindings and such.  But I did get a few stitches in some of the flowers on my to-go project.

Enjoying the process!

Working on this one next.  These little flowers are good for 15 minute sessions here and there.
Love the detail my cheap Nikon Coolpix picks up in Macro mode:


I started this project in December, 2016.  The pattern is called Homestead Harvest.  Below is a picture of the quilt I am making.  I am learning applique.  The pattern is from the book Simple Appeal, 14 Patchwork and Applique Projects for Everyday Living by Kim Diehl.  
I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Click by and check out all the other GORGEOUS projects at today's linky party here.!
Morning hair...don't care.  Here's a I just got up photo...and my still-crooked smile:
Yikes!  But at least the picture above doesn't show as much droop.  Next time I'll look MUCH better because I'll do my hair.  LOL.

So glad you are seeing some improvement. That had to be scary....and frustrating.

Good to hear that you can get some stitching done, which looks lovely - it's a really nice pattern. Hope the recovery keeps going strong :)
