I also managed to make the pinwheels in the wrong size. This sewalong (Simple Whatnots III) has a page of directions for each clue and those directions refer you to a page in the book. Of course the technique is in the book but we are to disregard the size (at least most of the time) and with my brain fog I cannot seem to get this right.
So here are the parts with the correct size pinwheels. I redid them in the right size.
And here is Barb's progress.

Barb and I sewed with Becky on Thursday (we set up another sew for clue three in two weeks) and worked on our Soul Mates. Here is Becky's.
Barb finished up her clue one of the Kim Diehl sewalong too.

Soul Mates clue one is done! Barb and I sewed with Becky on Saturday afternoon, and we managed to complete our clue one already. Here are my fabrics again.
Becky also decided to go with blue and brown. Looking forward to seeing how our different fabrics in the same colors turn out!
Here are Barb's blocks in Quilt of Valor colors. This will be gorgeous too!
These gorgeous blocks are Becky's Ruby Jubilee aka Amythyst Jubilee. She and I and Barb are enjoying this one too! So glad I have far away friends to sew with as this is my main social life!
I did have my first real outing in over two years. My daughter got us tickets to go see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical. It was a lot of fun. She dropped me at the door and I found a bench to wait on til she parked and came in. The walk in was fine and we had great seats and she even put me on an aisle (I hate to be squished especially by strangers). The group next to her did not show up so we had a nice chunk of space to ourselves. She was planning to pick me up but I felt up to walking to the car since the way in was so easy. I could not have walked in and out as it was a bit of a walk and slightly uphill over a bridge to the car but it pushed me to about what I could do so I was happy with it. Feel alright today so I do not think it was too much (if too much I sleep all the next day).
I started LDN (low dose naltrexone) four days ago and am super hoping it will be the miracle I need to lose at least some of the fatigue I deal with daily. It is good for both MS and ME so I have hope.
