I don’t know about you, but WOW! I didn’t see that coming. I expected jet lag which wasn’t too bad for this trip. I was tired and my feet were grapefruits (if you’ve seen me, I am a really tiny person and this was so out of character). The feet took two days to feel relief… once they were better I started coughing, then a tummy bug and it spiraled out of control from there. We flew home from the USA one week ago. The total trip was about 40 hours. I guess I picked up a bug along the way. Shane didn’t get it as bad, but we both caught it. Three negative tests meant it wasn’t the dreaded virus. I still have a very wet (green gook) cough, but the fever seems to have subsided for now.

Yesterday I finally got out of bed to work on the Christmas quilt. I am so excited for this one. I picked my fabrics today after writing all the cutting instructions last night. I am feeling better today, but I will continue to look after myself, working in little bits at a time. I hope to get clues 1 and 2 out to you within the next couple of days. I will update the clue here on the website to include my fabrics for you.

Don’t forget, I am returning to the USA in September 2024, please book in NOW to get your week/weekend choice. 12-14 September is already booked in Cincinnati. Montana and Tennessee have also asked to re-book… get in soon… the calendar is filling. I will keep you posted with the itinerary so you can try to schedule your trip as soon as possible.

It’s a beautiful day and I am dressed and
so ready to feel better!! ©Debi Montgomery

    So glad you are feeling better. Wish I could have seen you in the Cincy class. Back surgery is no fun!
    Next year for sure. Take good care

    So very thankful that you are on the mend, you and your husband. May your recovery be as quick as the virus was that caught you! God bless.

      Thank you so much! I am happy you’re on this journey with me. This year, I booked in with guilds and shops for mystery “retreats”. If there is a shop close or you belong to a guild, have them contact me and we will work together to get the ball rolling for Sept 2024. Thanks again!

  6. I’m glad you are feeling better Debi, I had a great time and will definitely plan for next year’s event in Cincinnati!
