Finally! I am returning to the land of the living. What an awful two weeks. Who would have thought that a simple summer cold could sap so much from a person? Hubby and I both went down with it and went down hard. I attribute it to we have settled enough to relax - really relax after two stressful years - and that allowed the crud to take hold.
For the most part, I spent the last two weeks reading, sniffling and coughing. But when a burst of energy would come upon me, I would engage in strenuous activities like internet shopping. That shopping resulted in a new addition to the quilting space.
A cubby to hold knick-knacks and supplies. Those empty spots won't be there long.
Next I unearthed the Juki and did some quilting.
I didn't feel all that smooth with meandering at first, but it got better as I went along.
I now have two of the June Lake Camp quilts ready for binding.
Hand stitching binding remains my favorite part of quilting.
Daisy is pretty happy that we are up and about again, too.
She was able to hold her energy level down and just snuggle for the most part. But look at the joy on her face when we finally played in the sprinkler on a warm afternoon. These are summer days that a puppy has just been waiting for.
