On the mend...

It has been a couple of days since I have been online, hopefully now I will start feeling better! :) I haven't been sewing or even thinking about it for a few days until a couple of hours ago, I started to feel restless, maybe that is a sign that I am getting better. Anyway, don't feel like moving around much so I thought I would get out the quilt that I have been hand quilting for a year or two! Hehehe! I am slow, but I do enjoy it. So far, I had Richard to get the quilt for me, I threaded the needle and stopped! Not much progress, I know, but at least it is ready when I want to start working on it again! Here is a photo of the quilt, before it was finished.
I didn't feel like stretching it out and taking another photo of it now, but at least you can sort of see what it looks like. It is queen size now!! Doing a simple cross-hatching pattern on it. This quilt was made from a bunch of 2.5" squares that I had cut from my scraps a while back.

Other than that, nothing really going on here! The boys have not gone back to school from Christmas break! We have a little bit of snow on the ground right now, so they have cancelled school so far this week. Now in the forecast we are expecting several more inches of snow, so that will keep them out for several more days. They are loving it!!! But it just makes them go longer in the Summer.

Now I'm off to read blogs and answer a ton of emails that I have.

It is so good to hear from you! I hope that you are feeling alot better! I remember that quilt, I like it very much, but then again I like all your quilts!
Yay for snow days! I know that you are glad to have the boys home. We have been teased with a chance of snow for Thursday but I don't think that it's going to happen! I wish it would!
Stay warm and get some rest!

Glad you are feeling better. Take care of yourself and don't fret about not doing any sewing. You were so busy before Christmas that this is just your body's way of saying take a break.

Love and hugs Gina xxx x
