Getting back in gear…
My sewing machine being out of order took me out of commission and then my allergies went thru the roof. I don’t know about you but when I’m sniffly, I just don’t want to do anything. Plus, it seems even non-drowsy meds make me drowsy, so it was a couple of nights on the couch instead of blogging. But I have my mojo back, and I have some cool projects for you! Stay tuned, and thanks for sticking with me during my short hiatus.
The bedroom makeover project
My DH and I have lived with this bedroom for the 4 years since our move to Chicago from Baltimore. Not seen in this horrible picture is the tray table I have used as a night stand. The house was built in 2001, and it’s still “builder white”. We also carried over some of our IKEA furniture, from when we were a struggling young couple who could barely make ends meet.
This N That #22 – Sick edition
I hate being sick. You never get anything done. And because most of us are something other than a quilter, such as a “mom”, “wife”, “worker” or any combination thereof, being sick means all of those jobs get behind on.
I have a terrible cold, and because I work out of my house and I am not regularly exposed to germs I am taking a beating on this one. It’s been 2 weeks and I’m officially sick of being sick.
Because I have been sick, I’ve watched a lot of TV, and this allowed me to finally watch “Amelie“. It’s a wonderful movie with a light hearted and wistful story that was such a joy to watch, and I know why it is a favorite of so many people I know.
I have been keeping up to date with my weeklies and even did a pretty neat Technique of the Week, so I hope to have that posted soon. For now, back to bed!
Home from the quilt show
And boy are my feet tired! I promise a bunch of goodie posts this week, including the “What the heck did I buy at the show” show and tell and “what the heck did I make at the show” show and tell, and even a technique of the week that was learned right there at the IQA festival, and it’s something you might really love like I do.
But for right now, I am super tired from both this and the comic book event right before it, so I am off to dreamland and will get the first of my posts up for you to read tomorrow. Later!
Minor Delay- But not to worry!
The technique of the week is on it’s way but was delayed by a minor scheduling problem I had from the weekend (read: nap and Olympics watching that dlayed my posting).
It will hopefully be up later tonight! Can’t wait for you to see it!
