Happy Sewing!

After 22 days of being sick, I'm sewing today. Not sure how long I'll be able to hang downstairbut to get some sewing time in is awesome! I'm working on my Rotating Snowball blocks today. I'm hoping use these blocks for a signature quilt for my upcoming Piece and Moan Quilt Retreat! April will be here soon, I hope. It's not to late to join in on our Snowball Quilt Along! Just drop me an email or comment here that you'd like to throw some snowballs!

Still haven't been able to sew. Pretty sure I had pneumonia. Antibiotics have taken care of it, but I still haven't been downstairs. I get pretty winded and start coughing when I do the stairs. But, as of yesterday, I feel good again. I feel like myself. And....I'm just chomping at the bit to be sewing. I'm very close to being able to sew again, but I'm scared to push it and end up in the hospital. So....slow it goes.

Next up...I'm going to a retreat! In April! Yep, that's right. We've had some chatter today about it and it's got me all hopped up for April to hurry up and get here. Another reason I need to be healthy and well. It's in Wisconsin. I lived in Wisconsin during some of my high school years when I attended a private Episcopal boarding school. This retreat is in the Wisconsin Dells, a place I've never been to. Oh yeah, I'm excited! I'd invite you all, but it's full. Some of my favorite people will be there....Jen, Cindy, Jen V., and several other blog buddies. We're the official Piece and Moan Quilt Group. Don't ya love that name? LOL! Makes me giggle every time I hear it. But there will be no moaning at the retreat. Of course, Patti is going, too! Can't wait! Will April ever get here?

Not much else new. I have only been out of the house once in 16 days. Garry and I went to our annual Valentines Dinner with our friends from church. I didn't do as well as I thought I would. It was just too soon for me to be out and my strength has been nil. But...I think it's coming back now. I know you're all tired of hearing how sick I am/was, but it's all I've got right now. I think I may venture down and sew a while tomorrow, that means I might finally have some pics for my blog.

Just want to say that I'm still missing (Amanda Jean) Crazy Mom's blog. It's like losing a very creative friend. I hope her life is everything she wants it to be and that she is happy. I also, am learning to hate Facebook. For all this time I've been sick, I've farmed, cooked, fed fish, and let me just say....ughhhh! So tired of all of that!

So....look for pics soon! Hope you are all healthy and sewing your brains out!
