This week I….

Went cross country skiing twice, on Monday and today…
Took a day and a half off work with the stomach flu – feeling better finally today…
Read The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  An excellent read…
Watched the movie Midnight in Paris and enjoyed it immensely…
Received these blocks in the mail: December adventure block from Margaret…..

I prepared ten of these hexies to send to DD # 2 for the Grandmother’s Flower Garden stepping stones…I’m not sure how preparing the hexies became my job…

  2. That sounds like a good week, except for being sick but the sewing and the good book (I liked it too) and the movie are all welcome additions to any week!

  5. Sounds and looks like you had an extremely productive week, especially since you were also fighting the flu bug. All blocks received and sent are wonderful and your dragon post card is amazing!!

  8. That first block is amazing! I love it. Sounds like you have been very productive. In the past few days I have finsihed two quilt backs, made a drawstring bag and a change mat from flannelette, tested my Brother 1500S machine to see if was working properly off the quilting frame (we've been having trouble with it), finished a romatic novel, knitted one and half socks, had a stomach bug and attended a funeral.

  9. It's because you have an iron! You could get me an iron then it would be designated my job again:)
