On The Mend

I promise y'all not to over-expose myself during the retreat next week. Nudity just ain't my thing, folks. So, if you're expecting to see a naked quilter, then you need to go somewhere else! Trust me, I look FAR better with clothing on!!! Shingles are already well on the mend and expected to be an unpleasant thing of the past by next Friday.

My energy level has gone back up a bit, so I spent some time in the sewing room last night. Found my two shoe boxes of fat quarters, reorganized my nickel squares into some order of colour, and found some flannel for a project Jen wants to share with us. A quilt shop not far from here is having their monthly fat quarter sale this weekend, so I may drive there tomorrow to pick up a few. Heck, they're only $1.50 each which is great for quilt shop quality. I picked up a pattern that looks like a jigsaw puzzle made from fat quarters, so I may splurge and get enough for that project. It could be a great quilt for one of my nephews.

HOWEVER, the weather is supposed to be gorgeous tomorrow and Michael may have other plans. Tattoo Boy has promised to help me with rehabbing the back yard this spring.

Like many of you, I've watched the U-Tube clip of Susan Boyle's performance at "Britain's Got Talent". Gobsmacked is a great word for it! (You Brits know that word, as for us Americans, think dumb-struck and you have it spot on.) It's such a great story and brings me to tears every time I watch the video - yes, it's now on my favorites list on the home pc. Susan is going to be tough to top in this competition and it's just unfortunate that we have to wait until close to the end of May to hear her onstage again. From what I understand, she performed on the first night of round one. Wow, what a way to start.

Need to dash off to a (yawn!) meeting. Have a great weekend!

Glad you are feeling better! You won't be seeing me naked at retreat either. I don't even like to shower with the lights on! Giggle! We are going to have a blast! I can't wait to meet you! Less than a week now! Woohoooo

I am so glad that you're feeling out and about. Don't overdo it! My son is going to help me overhaul our yard too. Nice to have these guys lend their mums a hand! See you soon.
