This past week wasn't nearly as productive as the week before, namely because I spent it battling off (unsuccessfully) a sinus infection. Bleh! Which is not to say I spent the week feeling terrible, I just didn't feel super-great. Ya' know what I mean? Thursday I took a trip into the doc's office and came away with a super-duper antibiotic and sinus pain pills, which helped. Anyway, I did have some very happy-and-bright spots during my week!
Evey came for a visit on Monday! She loves to move the magnets from one desk to another. And we found that a single piece of tape could occupy her for nearly ten minutes. LOL!
Then, coming home on Tuesday, I had a surprise squishy waiting for me!
Isn't that fun?! What a sweet little tea print -- I adore Susan Branch's blog and wasn't even aware she'd had a fabric line! Kris, of Lavender Quilts, has the uncanny knack for sending sweet little pick-me-ups at just the perfect time!
I also got to spend a little FaceTime with the Panter crew . . . though it's nearly impossible to get them all on the screen at the same time! I usually have to settle for a screen shot of just one at a time!
I'm missing my camp buddy, Sawyer -- we've had some good trail weather here lately, and he loved to ride the golf cart through the camp (and especially down to the creeks) with me! He's getting so tall . . . and for every inch he grows, I think he's losing a tooth!
Ellie came home with me Thursday night for a much needed sleepover We went to dinner at "Chick-a-lay" and then came home to watch Christmas movies. It's the evening she asked for -- who am I to deny her?!
She was totally bewildered when I woke up Friday morning with no voice. LOL! As of right now, it's still not returned. Hopefully before work tomorrow morning I'll find it somewhere!
I did manage to get some handwork in. I finished up the faux-ruched flower piece. Well, it needs a sleeve and a label, but everything else is done.
This piece was on my UFO list for the year, so it's really nice to have it finished.
I've also made significant progress in quilting the antique rose topper. Once I finish the leaves on that rose, I'll have two more roses to do, then I'll quilt a leafy border around the outside (similar to the one I've done on the inside).
This was another of my 2016 UFOs that will be a UFOnomo. Yay!! This will also satisfy my need for some slow stitching today.
My stash report just reflects the 1/2 yard of teapot goodness . . .
And that about wraps me up. I'll be linking up with Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts today -- both blogs are definitely worth checking out; such fun linky parties!!
Have a blessing-filled Sunday . . . and first day of February, tomorrow (what? already?!)!
