Ahhh the miracle of prescribed drugs!!

I've been laying low with a sinus and ear infection (seems to be becoming an annual thing. boohoo) but I finally went to the doctor yesterday. I haven't had the umph to sew, let alone post something clever and then answer comments so I just disappeared all week. Sorry! I spent my evenings watching season 2 of Lost on DVD and doing a few hexies now and then.

Last night and today I feel completely different. Look what I made:

The directions are here and it just uses 12 charm squares and some Steam a Seam 2. I'll be making one more star from this fabric and then I'll make a larger one with 10" fabric squares. Not sure what fabric I'll use for the larger star since I'm just about out of these fabrics. All white might be pretty or I could just use reds and greens from my stash. What do you think?

That is amazing. Hope you're feeling better, I just got over that nasty stuff too.

I'm *so* glad you're feeling better! Next time, go to the doctor SOONER!! :) The star is AMAZING! Thanks for sharing the link for it! All white or white and red would be a pretty combo!

I made Ginger Oatmeal cookies this morning -- new recipe I found on the Cooks Illustrate website. YUM! Wish we could share a plate of cookies and a pot of tea! :)

Glad you are on the mend. Wondered where you were.
This star is beautiful. Though I'm sure this would be beautiful in all white, I think the contrasting fabrics give it so much dimension. How about doing a white/green combo and a white/red combo from stash fabrics? Or just the colors you have used here, even though they may not be holiday prints?

Glad you're feeling better! I just figured you were cranking on christmas presents- I know I have to!
The star is very cool

Hope you're feeling better every day.
