Out with the flu!!

The flu hit me with an unexpected force and as a bonus a terrible bronchitis 3 weeks ago and only since 2 days i feel a lot better, helped with the sunlight and warmer temperatures.
Bronchitis scares me more than everything else as i have damage on my right lung, due to x_rays after breastcancer in 1991. That long ago??? Yes, i'm a survivor since then, i can hardly believe it!!
But you say there was not a single post since 6 dec. 2014!!! 
I agree, and that was laziness, and procastination, and long long hours reading blogs...
And then i received some e-mails from fellowquilters, asking if i was allright and i felt sooo ashamed...
Thank you my friends, for your tokens of friendship i appreciate so much...

The top with the blue border is the most recent, made from scraps out of boxes under the bed, the blue border is old Souleïado fabric from a junksale.
Some friends from Amsterdam and Zutphen have seen the stars during the top-show-and-tell and there was much ado about the sashings, a bit weird maybe!

I went to town some days ago, to empty my mind and indulge myself with some magazines from Smith's and sons.

Some pictures of the rue des Abbesses by night. at my friend Gégé, the joiner. He lives on the 5th floor, and from his small balcony i pictured some streetviews and spied the neighbours in front...





Back to my struggle with appliquéborders, take care and i hope the flu passed your door...

Beautiful quilt! The light blue border is unexpected and perfect. Glad you are feeling better. There's a flu going around the U.S. too, but I have been lucky.

Wat fijn dat je weer beter bent.
Van Martine (quiltblog 'Elke dag een steekje') hoorde ik over jou en ben heerlijk naar foto's van je quilts gaan kijken. Ik ben helemaal weg van die mooie sterrenquilttop met die rode sashings. Prachtig !!!
Ik hoop dat je ooit weer een Show and Tell in NL gaat houden, dan probeer ik er echt bij te zijn.
