Instead she spirited the kids away for a few days (Thankyou Mum xxx) and I have spent the week in bed. After a few days I was able to sit up enough to do a bit of hand stitching and that's what's been keeping me sane(ish)
Then I worked on my EPP Bee blocks
Did a bit more quilting on my Loulouthi quilt (yes it's covered in dog-hair - I took pity on my poor attention starved puppy and let him curl up next to me while I stitched this)
and my favourite :) This has cheered me up! The lovely Susan cut these fabrics for me months ago after I fell in love with this beauty made by Michelle I like Orange Too, and just had to make one of my own. I've been scared to put them together and quilt it because I was scared I would mess it up. This is the very last bits of some of my most treasured fabrics! Luckily it seems to have gone okay (or at least if it hasn't, I still can't see straight enough to realise!!!)
I'm feeling a bit better now and managed to watch a tiny bit of TV with the kids last night. Paul O'Grady - for the Love of Dogs My little lovelies waited for me to feel better so we could watch it together on Sky+ :)
And there have been benefits to being poorly. I've got an early start on my Christmas weightloss - I've lost 6lbs!
Hope you've had a good week :)
