I love the bright-coloured wildflowers of Spring. In Southern California the season is short and I used to make the most of it by taking day trips to see them. Sadly, due to extreme hay fever, the beauty of wildflowers has been all lost on me since I moved to Northern California. Although I love to be outside A LOT, I now have to restrict myself to the indoors during Spring as much as possible, even with constant medication. On top of this, I also got a bad cold (again!!) with a sore throat last week. The cold and the allergy medicines together are making me so sleepy and that I am constantly feeling like a drained battery.
So I have been depending on caffeine more than ever to get anything done. A drained laptop battery gave me the idea for this Coffee Meter quilt pattern. I promptly drew it, drafted the pattern and made the block. The block makes me giggle, probably because I always overwork my laptop which is also in need of a new battery. The poor thing runs out of juice so quickly, now I know how it feels!
Have A Latte blog hop is coming up next week. Perfect timing! Of course, I am making something for the blog hop that uses this block.
I am dusting off the old Coffee Chemistry block for the blog hop as well. Remember this one?
Getting up in the middle of the night to watch and take photos of the recent lunar eclipse probably increased the need for coffee even more!
Happy Caffeinating…I mean Sewing!
