Bad Week

 
My computer was fairly old and has been slow for awhile but it finally died this past week. I had to resort to using my phone and my Nook. I really missed the old desk top! Also, my daughter and I have been shopping and had hair appointments. My days off were rather busy. However, yesterday, my husband did go out and found me a nice lap top! I like it but have to get used to it. I was trying it out last night when I came down with a stomach virus. Not fun at all! I went to bed early and woke up a bit better but still not that great. I hope to rest and lay around like Lily is doing in the picture! I'm sure she will love company on the couch!

I haven't had much time for quilting. I have been practicing some more FMQ, knitting my shawl and doing some applique on my Dresden plates. It's been sporadic at best. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things once I feel back to my old self.

 The desk top was on a good sized desk in the sewing/computer room. I may be able to rearrange things and make it a sewing room only! I have so much to do this week! I just have to get over this darn virus.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Keep away from all the nasty viruses out there!

    1. Thanks, Julierose! I have planted myself on the couch and will probably spend the major part of the day here! Just wish I could be more productive.

  5. Oh Rosemary I'm so sorry you are down with the bug! Isn't that typical when we have so much to do we get sick? Hoping you get well soon! At least you have a furry friend that you can hug and love on while sharing the couch! I've had a migraine for a couple of days. I finally found my recliner. Hubby said to me, Do you realize you have worked everyday this week! Anyways get well!

    1. You're amazing to be able to work with a migraine! They are so painful! I'm better than last night but not quite myself. Getting there slowly, I guess! Lily has been great company!

    1. Sharn, I guess I couldn't keep up my end of the bargain either! I didn't get it too badly. Just about 24 hours of feeling awful. I even worked yesterday. Could have been worse! Hope your and your husband are all better now!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
