I have not been feeling well for the last week, it must be bad as I actually went to the doctors on tuesday to be told I had a virus, they said they would do some tests to see what if anything they could do to help.... by wednesday I had a sticky eye and needed cream for it so back to the doctors again...... by thursday I could almost see to stitch but the rest of me ached too much to try, they dragged me off to the doctors again on friday to discover that I needed drugs to help get rid of this virus and I was told it may be another week before I am normal again... I have to say that I have never been normal but I would like to be more my abnormal self.
Vince bought me these to cheer me up...
The flowers were doing a great job of making me feel better and then when the wonderful man came home from doing some grocery shopping he also had these...
Wow, aren't they great, perfectly flat which I like and very comfortable. Last week I had started to pull out some clothes from my wardrobe in preparation for my trip to Spring Market in Portland, Oregon in May (only about 6 weeks away, panic is setting in here as I am behind with my schedule) these shoes will be ideal and as you know I just love wearing red. I have got my booth allocation already and I am really happy with where I am, there are about 2500 vendors altogether so as you can imagine it would be very easy to get lost in the crowd. Helen and Tracey are also coming and our booths are next door to each other which is wonderful as we can look after each other.
I forgot to show you the small bit of stitching that I did up the beach with Mum and Ruth, I say small as we were so busy catching up on 15 years news that very little stitching was done!
Yes, I know they are very pretty fabrics which I dont usually use but I was given this bundle a few years ago and Mum and Ruth thought they were great and so we have started. The hexagons a 3/4" and they came from Patchwork With Busyfingers. Pop over to Sue's blog and have a look at the wonderful paper pieced Pie quilt that one of Sues friends has made, its just gorgeous and I want it, Sues friend always chooses such ugly fabrics and makes them look divine. Maybe if we smile sweetly she will put a fabric bundle together for us??
Well I feel a nap coming on, this typing has worn me out. Take care
