But then, BAM! I did not feel well. Some kind of flu. Not bad enough to go to the doctor, but I didn't want to spread it around, so I kept to myself for about 2 weeks. I didn't feel up to much, except noodling around with some stitching, making grilled ham and cheese sandwiches when I felt better, dipping those sandwiches in tomato soup, etc.
The blog was the last thing on my mind, I'm sorry to say. But I'm trying to make a comeback! I almost felt like blogging yesterday (Friday), but somehow, I just couldn't get going. I rested a lot.
But, today (Saturday), I feel much better. I'm hoping that I can continue the blog next Friday.
One fortuitous thing that did happen was that JUST before I got sick I finished my Snoopy Quilt. Oh, what a comfort that was to snuggle with when I wasn't feeling well. It's not too big, just a little shorter than I am. The plain cotton Snoopy fabric is on one side, and some flannelette rectangles on the other, stitching in the ditch. White quilt binding along the edges. I wanted to use cotton batting, but Wally World was all out of the good stuff when I was almost finished, so I just went with low loft poly batting . It turned out just fine. I washed it to get out the fabric marker marks I had made for some of the sewing, and it washed up beautifully. Very soft, and the fabric softener was JUST RIGHT. Comfy!
I'll try and have something for Friday, now that I'm feeling better.
