Slow and Steady.

It feels a little wrong to be resting and relaxing as much as I have been.. I don't know why. Yesterday was the first day I actually did something, but not a lot. My sewing room closet has the attic and crawl space access so I had to clear a bunch of stuff out during the bathroom work and the place was a wreck. I did get all that back where it belonged. I love my new organized area and it was painful to see it messed up.
And blogs, I had to catch up with my blogs and there were tons of updates. I love seeing what people are up to. I didn't leave as many comments as I would have liked but I'm up-to-date with you guys now, so phew. I don't like it when I slip behind!
I did finish up my cone block, isn't it cute! I am loving the applique and blanket stitching. Not a good photo, it's a little gloomy here, but perfect resting and relaxing weather. I need to run a couple of errands today. First time out of the house since Friday.. is it just me or when you haven't been out in the world for a few days it seems weird to leave the house? Oh, just me.
That's all for today sweeties.. see you later!

Love the block, love that you're out of the house too! And yes... totally weird to me too once I get out.

I've been playing catch up too and wish I could be leaving more comments. So much is happening in our little blogland!

Cute block. I know what you mean about feeling weird when you finally leave the house after a week or so. Makes me realize I might be an okay recluse...

That's why I just stay in the house...too weird when I leave. :-) LOVE that adorable block! Glad you're feeling well enough to organize (not my first choice of activity upon recovery but I'm lazy!).

Glad things have settled down for you! Although I'm sure it was nice to take a little breather. Your block turned out great! You really have such an eye for color.

Love your little cone! I know just what you mean about being behind on blogs -- it drives me nuts to see if I'm behind and I feel a big backlog coming up soon...Aaack! Glad you're getting back to normal!

I love what you settled on for your little red flowers after the previous double plaid "trouble"-ha.
I clicked on your pic to see your blanket stitches-so perfect! Is this part of a quilt or pillow?
Anyway, I love it-Nerm

It definitely feels weird to leave the house when you've been huddled up at home for days.

I'm glad you're on the mend!

I adore your fabric choices for that block!
I hope you're back up to full throttle soon. In the meantime go easy on yourself (lot's of tea and DVDs!).

I don't even know you, but guess I want to BE you !!! I went to Kohls for cherry shoes and now I want to know what fabric you used for your lovely block. Just so cheerful and cute. Since I am new to blogging, I beg you to share.....which pattern too. Inquiring minds (G)!!!! Hugs, Annie from San Diego

I'm sorry you have been sick. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Yes, it is wierd to get out. I had a hysterectomy 5 weeks ago. Tuesday was the first day I had driven. I felt so out of place. I had to take my daughter to the doctor, and I kept stuttering. Finally I told them that I felt like I was in la-la land because of not being out that much. They just laughed and understood.

I wonder what excuse I can use next time I visit them? lol
