The end of the week.

This week has flown by. I am feeling much better, but just about everyone else here feels worse! There is much coughing and some people have even lost their voices. We're a sick and sorry lot. I have been working on my bag swap bag. The photo above shows you what I did with the suffolk puffs. It's that texture thing. The bag is not finished yet, but I am going to finish it off tomorrow and then send it.


Yesterday I made this wheat bag. The wheat was in an old wheat bag that had a hole in it. I made a calico bag to put the wheat in first and then used some flannel scraps to make a pretty cover. I love it. I did have lots of other things to sew, but just needed to finish something quickly so I didn't feel so hopeless! You know, sometimes you just need a little encouragement.

And I was encouraged. I managed to finish the curtains for our living area. Well, okay, not finished completely. I still have to hem the curtains. That's scheduled for tomorrow too. (My living room looks dreadful! The kids had just sorted the clean clothes when I decided I wanted a photo.) So, almost all of my goals achieved this week. The last goals I will be concentrating on on the weekend.

Oh my, it’s the same story overhere! Lots of sick people and virusses flying around!

You’ve made a lot while not feeling well! I love the Suffolk puffs!

Hope you’re on the mend! Happy weekend!

Oh fabulous you have been so productive - oh and that orgasmic fabric again LOL

Feed everyone lots of fresh crushed and finly chopped garlic in their meals - this should help the immune system...

You are making me feel very guilty! You were sick and did a bazillion things -- I feel fine and didn't do ANYTHING!:O) I'm loving that bag that you are making.

Sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you're getting some R&R this weekend and will be back to good health soon.

Love what you've done with the suffolk puffs! Can't wait to see the finish on such a pretty bag.

Have a great weekend and get well soon!

Love those Suffolk Puffs! Sounds so much more fancy than YoYos. What a cool bag that will be.
