Fun in my fabric world....

Friday, May 14, 2010

It had to happen...

...yes, it did! Working with the public has it's drawbacks, and germ exposure is a big one in my line of work! So, I have succumbed to a cold, trivial really, but I have felt really awful for the last few days, streaming eyes, etc...yuk! Just want to sleep...and I have tried to do just that. My heated throw has been very snuggly...and I have had no real interest in stitching....did a bit of cross stitch, then had to pull most of it undone as I was a thread out...important life rule: Thou shalt not stitch when your head feels like it is stuffed with cotton wool!!!
Started fiddling with these Kaffe Fassett prints...might play more over the weekend...DD says I won't be able to use the finished quilt in my room as it will keep me awake! I quite like it's vibrancy...what do you think?
Tissues have been my friends lately....these are too pretty to use...nice to carry for "show"...LOL!

Colds are never fun. I hope that you feel better soon. I am a big tea drinker and that usually makes me feel better. Drink tea! Love your little Kaffe project, but then again you know me and Kaffe.

So sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Wish it wasn't daggy looking to wear a mask as we all should be these days.
Hope you get better soon. Love those gorgeous tissues. Don't waste them....
