Not Myself This Week

Since I am sick this week with bronchitis I thought I would just go with it..If you notice, my head feels huge, my ears feel like they are stuffed with cotton, my eyes are heavy lidded with large bags from lack of sleep due to coughing, my nose is huge and red cause of all the nose blowing, my lips are dry and chapped because of having to breath through my mouth so much, you can catch a glimpse of the fire that is in my throat through my open mouth, let's not forget the scraggly hair :-), and last but not least I am feeling ragged and a bit green around the edges!
I used my favorite technique which is fused appliqué.

You sure captured the look that we all feel when we are sick.
Hope you are feeling better.

since this was the 1st day I felt well enough to actually do something Betty, I'm hoping to be all better soon :-)

Wendy said...

I knew exactly what you were portraying when I saw the quilt... even before I read your post!
Feel better soon!

Joni said...

You are really a dedicated artist, to put together a FFFC when you are feeling sick. It is a good way to start feeling better though! Very expressive entry...we sure know how you feel. Get well soon. Joni

Cathy what a great expression of how you were feeling at the time of making the quilt.
You captured that "blah" feeling perfectly.
I hope that if you were to do a self portrait today if would look very different.

Carole said...

Know that feeling!!!!!!!!
And so well presented.
Ditto the remarks above.

Chuckle...I think we've all looked exactly like this before! I especially relate to the red nose and cracked lips...LOL
I do hope you are feeling better now!

Cathy, I'm hoping to avoid this look this year...I'm sorry you didn't. Very expressive piece!

Hi Cathy,

Boy, can I relate. It started with my oldest kid, and has made the rounds through my house! We just call it "the crud". Hope you are feeling better. Great job on the piece.

Hi Cathy,

By now, you must be feeling better...hopefully, lots better.

The droopy eyes (and bags under them) tell it all in this piece!
