It has been a crazy few days here. Ethan ran a 103 temp for 2 days with strep throat, he is definitely on the mend now, but Jerry and I shared a couple of sleepless nights up with our little guy. I did finish my final exam on time in the midst of this. Friends from out of town surprised us with a visit, and my website crashed. I think that covers it.
My server is working on the problem (something is wrong at their end) in the mean time I’m shopping for a new server. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need anything.
Some stress relief – stitching & sewing, and a little book shopping in Boulder. First of all I’m making a frog pillow for my mom (mother’s day gift). She doesn’t read this so I’m safe sharing. This is an image I printed onto the fabric with my ink-jet printer. I ironed the fabric to freezer paper and then ran it through the printer. She collects froggie things so I though I would make her an little elegant frog pillow.
Second, a bit of stitching! I actually sat down and stitched for about 2 hours this weekend, it has been ages it seems since I’ve even had time. Cottage Garden (from Country Cottage Needleworks & Crescent Colours) is pictured on a table cloth I’m making with some April Cornell fabric. Some other sewing has been going on for a certain designer – more on that in a week or so after she gets to see her new pillows. These little Prairie Schooler birds were the squares I sent Vicki last month in the Fair & Square exchange, and here is the book I picked up while Jerry and I were out browsing at bookshops today. A little cocoa and animal crackers and I should be completely de-stressed!
