Hibernating

Cough, cough, sniff, sniff...........

Miserable, that's the only word for it. Since last Friday those are the only words that come out of my mouth. Well if you can call them words. I've felt like a hermit, huddled in for the winter. And I really don't feel like doing anything. I've knitted a little, and read a little bit of a book, read a few blogs. But basically, nothing very productive.

And to top it all off, yesterday and today I've had to listen to this all day long.

Thankfully he does not have the back up BEEP, BEEP on, or I think I would have moved!

But this afternoon my speedy mailman brought my copy of the latest American Patchwork & Quilting!
YAY!! I was so excited when I read on Jillily's blog yesterday about her pattern being published.

I have wanted to make Around the Town ever since I saw Kim's post about Wasatch Quilt Shop Hop. I love Jill's pattern, but I think my color way will be more along the lines of this -

Okay, back under the quilts and another hot cup of tea............ gotta get over this stuff.

cough, cough.....sniff sniff...............

Oh man! I know those colds are awful and seemingly neverending. Hang in there and enjoy that sweet magazine. Around the Town is really cute. I like the alternate colorway as well. Hope my magazine gets here soon.
Take care!

If I have to have a cold, let it be in the wintertime,,not summer when I would miss all those lovely summer days...remember them??

Val said...

Oh I hope you will feel better soon! I hate being sick especially when you want to do so much.

Libby said...

Good to hear that you are feeling some better!

Becky said...

I was wondering how you were feeling. My son and MIL had some virus earlier in the month. They are both having a difficult time regaining their energy. Take care of yourself! Wish I had received my APQ magazine. Maybe, it will come in the mail tomorrow. I read Jillian's blog yesterday, too and thought this was a neat project.

Linda said...

Ugghhh! Hope you feel better real soon!! :-)

Cheryl said...

Feel better soon! I hope my magazine arrives soon.

SewCalGal said...

Things don't look too happy in your cottage. I do so hope you are feeling better soon. Glad that the quilt magazine arrived, as this is a perfect time. Could be a good time to check out some inspirational quilt videos. Again, I do hope you feel 100% better very soon.

This cold surely is lingering - oh I hope you're better soon! I hate how they hang on and on and on....and to have to listen to machinery too. Yuck.

At least you can think about quilting, and now you can read about it too. Get well soon.

Is that grass and the sun? Wish we had some of that. We have been hibernating too...mostly because of the snow. Hope you feel better soon.

Ivory Spring said...

Sorry to hear about your cough. I have been battling with a cough myself in the last four weeks. *hugs*

I read through that magazine yesterday - lots of beautiful projects!!

Midlife Mom said...

So sorry you have the creeping crud that is going around. I am fighting it myself, trying to stay healthy for a trip that is coming up this week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Isn't it so much fun to get a new magazine? I just love to curl up on the sofa with it and a cup of hot chocolate in the winter and a diet coke in the summer!

Deanna said...

Glad to hear you are turning the corner. I think I'll go grab a cup of something hot myself.
