Long time, no hear! I've been away from, well everything. Right after we last talked, I caught the flu. I thought is was a cold but learned that high fevers and body aches means flu. I was down for 13 days and I still have a residual cough that I'm trying to beat.
Not a good time to be sick. Of course Is there ever really a good time?
The only things I accomplish was shortening my kindle book list. Thank goodness I could still read, otherwise I may have gone stark raving mad! Nothing else got done during this time, i.e., dishes, laundry, dusting...
BUT, this is a new year. That means we have a chance to start fresh and do things better than last year.
My 1st resolution. not to get sick! No more wasted days!
2nd, continue with that UFO basket. It would be nice to finish at least half of my UFO's this year. Maybe if I make a realistic goal it will be easier to achieve. This year I start with 8 in my basket.
So I pulled one out of the basket. This quilt came from cousin Nikki, but she doesn't know where it came from. Which is too bad, it would be interesting to know who made it.
I'm adding more color to the blank areas and I plan to add even more color in the quilting. Just a touch. Hopefully it'll turn out alright. If not, It'll still keep someone warm. Someone female that is!
My first sewing project after being sick and also the first of the year, were these bags for my little nieces.
I've said it before, but I really wishes those girls lived closer so I could see more of them.
It was a fun couple of hours filled with giggles and smiles.
And 3rd, I'd like to improve myself. Mind and body. To become a better me.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with more.
Take care, Brandie
