Feeling a Little Better

Of course, plenty of sleep this weekend helped a lot. I got up early for a haircut on Saturday and then came home and went back to bed and slept until mid afternoon. Then went to bed at 8:00 p.m. I woke up this morning at 8:00, started the coffee pot going, and went back to bed. A friend called and woke me up at noon.

This afternoon I've been piecing leaf blocks - this is a project I already had going before Judy unveiled her October project. I'm going to give it to my brother for Christmas. I think I have all the leaves made now. Just need to lay it all out and see what I have left to do. It's turning out nice.

I found out I have not one, but two broken cameras. I guess it's time to bite the bullet and get a new one! Hopefully I'll get to post pictures soon.

I did venture to the new quilt shop Saturday afternoon. It was their grand opening. They had a bluegrass band in there, and then had some young children playing the cello and violin later. It was really nice. I picked up some fall FQs for Alex's retreat project. I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to do that one, but just wanted to be prepared just in case. It's another fall quilt with leaves and houses.

I haven't been around the blog ring in over a week, but checked in on a few of you today. Some beautiful projects are being done by you. You constantly inspire me! Hopefully this cold is wearing off, and I'll feel more like sewing and blogging. Hopefully!

I'm so glad you're feeling better! I've been worrying about you. (((HUGS)))

I'm glad you are still in the land of the living - we were worried about you. This cold really must have been a dozy to knock you so low. If you were able to sew a little today you must finally be feeling better. Thank goodness!

Glad you're feeling better.

Even when I'm not sick, I enjoy catching up on my sleep on the weekends! Nothing better than waking up slow, stretching and yawning in a nice warm waterbed, and realizing I don't have to hurry and get up, hurry to the shower, hurry to dress, drive, and hurry to work.

Glad you are feeling better! Sounds like you got some much needed rest...it's good to just let your body do what it needs to do. We push ourselves way too hard. Take care!

Hi Vicky, sure hope you are feeling better soon. Those darn colds really take it out of a person.

Glad you got that extra sleep. When I got hit by that bug back around the 1st of Oct...that was all I wanted..sleep and more sleep! And then more sleep very soon...LOL. Pamper yourself a little, Hugs, FInn

Hit the Chicken noodle soup. Maybe you'll get your strength back for sewing soon, at least read about quilting....

Oh, good you are on the road to recovery. Just don't overdo and end up sick again. I missed you while you were sick.

Good to hear you're getting better. I'm sure by now, Thursday, you're in the pink!! lol
Can the cameras be repaired or is it not worth it?
