I'm told it's August

I am still sick and haven't really been keeping up with much other than resting. Mr 9 tells me that it is August and on the whole he is a truthful young man, so guys, it's August! Who can believe it? Obviously not me!

Loz and I travelled to Port Pirie on Saturday morning for Country Hart's retreat with Gail Pan and Natalie Ross. I had had a pretty good day on Friday at red club and even had my voice back (Gosh I missed it!), but Saturday saw me without a voice again. It was a well organised weekend with great teachers and a very welcoming and generous host (Robyn). Apart from feeling sick, I had a wonderful time. I spent the two days stitching the Gail Pan stitchery above and was really pleased to finish it while I was there. Since then I have done very little and I still don't have my voice. (Just the voice of some old guy called Irwin I think. Every time I speak it shocks me.)

I am at picklestick's house today for sewing day. So far all I have done is this post. I am working on another stitchery from the weekend and you may see that later in the week. Last month I had all sorts of goals and plans for the month. This month I hope to get my voice back. And that is all. Okay. Back to the stitching!

Lookafter your voice Kris and don't try to talk. You need to rest it. Hope you are feeling heaps better soon.

Take is easy Kris, everything will still be waiting for you once you are are better and your voice is back. One good thing with stitching, sewing etc you don't need your voice to do it.

Hope your soon feeling 100%! I've had a crappy cold since the night of the Deb Ball (my throat was on fire that night!) and a lovely husky voice all week. Lots of coughing but I feel quite okay (drat! - couldn't get out of going to work). I have it in my mind that I need to get to the beach and breathe in some sea air so perhaps that's what I'll do this weekend coming. Stay warm, snugged up with your stitching, that's the best medicine.

Cheers - Joolz
