Here I was, all haughty and smart thinking that I wouldn't get my hubby's cold that he had last week! Ah----NOT! I've got it good! Coughing so badly that I wake myself up every 1 1/2 hours all night long, nose running, head achy, and throughly feeling really crummy! Thank heavens for AC though. With the rains we've been having this past month and the humidity in the air, I'm sure I could feel a lot worse. Needless to say, I haven't had an exceptionally productive week!!!
Today, I cleaned out some bags of "already fused" fabric. These are pieces that I had left after doing something else with them originally. Well, when I got going, I wondered if there might be enough of a variety to make a mini "Under the Sea" quilt that I need to fulfill the QT Swap obligation for this round. I was going to take a trip to my LQS the last two days and look for stuff for the swap, but the way I've been feeling, I hated to infect the world!! Now, I'm thinking I just might be able to whip up something using what I have. What a delight that would be!! I will let you know. It doesn't have to be that big....only 12 inches square max. But I'm not going to make it today! I worked hard enough cleaning out that bag! This was just a smidgin of all that I found. I just pulled the "water looking stuff" out for now. I have until the end of July so the quilt will need to wait until my brain is functioning better!! Right now, it's all clogged up!
I can show you a few envelopes though. Here are two more that I sent to my great niece for the early readers. I was only going to send her 1 a week (if you recall), but while searching for something else in Amazon, I found a few more fun ones so just HAD to order them too. More books, more envelopes.......so some weeks I will double up. Today she got one where I enclosed a dessert chocolate recipe for her mother as long as I was sending stuff. My niece told me that she thought Audrey was more excited about the dessert than the book. Go figure!!
Then, naturally, we have the envelopes I sent to Annie in California:
Then, one to a fan.........
So that's it! Please don't think that all these images come out of my head. They are from all over.....stamps, clip art, illustrations and some of them are my own. I am a good copier.....and just by looking at an image, usually I can increase it to fit what I need just be re-drawing it. Besides, then I get to use my Copic markers.......and I LOVE coloring!!
Have a good week, and stay well! This being sick is NO fun!
