An Unwelcomed Passenger


I brought home an unwelcome passenger from the craft fair - The flu lurgey.  Having had something similar a few weeks ago this one hit me pretty quick and all I have done all week is sit round.



I did try and relax and get over the bug but it has now developed into a chesty cough - Hopefully it won't stick around for too much longer.


Kaitlin is 18 tomorrow so I have lots of cooking and baking to do for a family dinner tomorrow night and as I am back at work tomorrow it all has to be done today.


I spent some time during the week on some sewing for my pal Helen from her soon to be released fabric line which is gorgeous - Take my word for it !!


I spent some more time on my Geisha quilt and


got the courage up to unwrap a much loved jelly roll


This will be made into another Natalie Ross Children's Quilt - This time my sewing group is making Jitter Bug.  I have 5 little girls in the family so I am hoping to get 5 novelty quilts made in the next 18 months as gifts for them all Christmas 2013.


The pattern calls for 9 groups of 3 strips so I had a lot of fun auditioning strips with one another


I am loving the tones in California Girl especially the Blues


A quick look around the garden this morning saw a lot of my plants starting to get ready to hibernate for winter


It won't be long and we will have to spend a weekend picking up Autumns leaves and tidying up before they all fall asleep until Spring.  Wouldn't it be nice to hibernate for the winter in front of the fire with some stitching on our laps and not have to worry about the world outside?  Wishful thinking......

Have a great week

Hugs - Fee XX

Lots of loveliness here. I was a bit scared to scroll down the page in case the unwelcome passenger was a spider - that's just how my mind works- but instead it contained fabric and sewing goodness. Thank you.

Melody said...

PS Get well soon.
