Earlier this week I received the most delightful treat in the mail. My dear blogging friend Michele from Sugar Bowl House had recently achieved a blogging milestone, and I was one of the lucky recipients of her celebratory gifts. Michele is the sweetest person, and I feel so lucky to be her buddy - do stop by and say 'Hi', she has been working on some Very Special Projects lately. The gifts are so sweet, I love the Christmas project, and I especially love the book and the sentiment behind it. Thank you Michele!
And on the sewing front - these are some blocks I've been putting together over a long period of time. Many of the blocks were already made - they're Double Irish Chain blocks inspired by one of Bonnie's Leader and Ender projects. I just had to make a couple more blocks, and I've now started putting the top together. I'd like to start quilting this weekend if I can - fingers crossed :-)
I'm definitely on the mend now - my doctor prescribed some fabulous antibiotics and my cough is really starting to clear up. I did have a little nap today, but I definitely have more energy. I even felt like moving around in the kitchen! We have roast beef, onion gravy and potatoes in the slow cooker, and I'm toying with making a peach pound cake this afternoon. I found the link on someones blog (sorry - don't remember who's) but I feel sure it is going to be super yummy!
Last of all - a big HI to JulieJaz who has come out of lurkdom to comment recently. I visited at your blog to add my greetings, but for some reason the commenting wasn't working. And thank you to everyone who has stopped by to check up on me - you're treasures :-)
