** Thought I’d change things up a bit this week since I didn’t get to do my Tuesday Tidbits post last week…
** I’ve had a fairly low-key weekend thanks to another dose of head cold & a wicked sore throat
** Yesterday I stayed in bed most of the day thanks to Mr Flutter’s Daddy daycare service. Bless him!
** It was exactly what I needed – Lemon & Honey drinks, new seasons of my favourite TV shows online & getting my Google Reader down from 400 to 0. And I even read almost all of them rather than pushing “mark all as read”!!
** Come the afternoon I decided to roll out of bed & pretty myself up because we had our churches birthday celebration dinner & AGM to attend. I really didn’t want to miss it, so I drugged up to kill my headache & frocked up…

** I didn’t scrub up too badly considering I’d spent most of the day in bed with a headache feeling sorry for myself!
** It was a really lovely evening but I made Neil take me home at 8.30pm as thanks to the pain killers making me dozy I could hardly keep my eyes open.
** I’d LOVE to say that it was a good decision to go & I woke up today feeling totally awesome today, but unfortunately I woke up feeling like I’d swallowed some razor blades & could hardly talk.
** By lunch time today I decided to harden up, because I hadn’t been able to sew in nearly a week and I wasn’t quite sure what was worse – feeling so sick, or having such bad crafting withdrawals. So I figured that since I could do something about once of those symptoms, I finally got out of bed.
** And it’s a good thing too, because I turned out to be surprisingly productive…
Meet Scrappy Pouch 1:
& Scrappy Pouch 2:
Both were commissions, so hopefully both off to new homes this week…
And I also managed to finish the quilting for my table runner, although you can only have a sneak peak of this because I will take more when the binding is finished (and when it’s daylight!)…
So all in all not a bad effort really!
Although I did make some incredibly silly mistakes thanks to dozey drugged brain – I don’t do well on pain killers, (Or any drugs for that matter) as they tend to also numb what few brain cells I have left after giving birth!! But thankfully nothing too fatal.
– At least I hope nothing too fatal- the juries out on the quilting of the table runner until I see it in daylight tomorrow. Because I decided to be brave & quilt with green instead of my usual go-to white. I’m not yet convinced it was the best decision, but hopefully seeing it in daylight will make it grow on me!
Hope you had a nice weekend!
