Today I am at home with a revolting sore throat and headache... but I am not getting a cold or the flu... ok, bugs you heard that so go away! So far this winter I have managed to avoid all the dreaded flu bugs that have been going around and I do not intend to succumb now!!
The bonus of being home today though is that I am managing to finally catch up on my blog reading.... I can't believe how busy all these very clever crafty people have been since I last went wandering in blogland. I really must go for a wander more often! I apologise to everyone for my lack of wandering, but unfortunately the hours in the day just don't seem long enough to do everything I want to do.... Reading some of the posts on the blogs that I follow it seems to me that most of us are in the same situation.
I do have a small stitching update for you. Over the last couple of weeks I have been slowly (and I mean slowly!) stitching on the latest quilt square for "Quilts 4 Kids". This square is a "Gloria and Pat" design called "Cheerful Notes". It is a really nice design to stitch now that I have got the hang of all the quarter stitches in it! At first I was doing half stitches, but when I looked at the coloured print of the design I realised that they would be better off being quarter stitches as they are supposed to represent lines or strings on the instruments.
Below is where I was up to as of last night. I am planning on getting a few hours in stitchng this afternoon so will give you all another update soon.
