Design Wall Monday and...

Mystery Monday Link Up

It's hard to believe I haven't blogged for 3 weeks!
The cold/flu bug bit hard this time.
It's that stuff that won't go away.
Just when I thought I was good again, BAM!!!
It knocks me on my face.
So that makes sewing like I do impossible.
When I did start to feel good, it was only a few minutes at a time but
I finished part 3 of  En Provence from Quiltville,
only 1 week late!

On a day I felt really good,
I cut part 4 and then next morning sewed it all up.
Part 5 will hopefully happen today.

It's always fun when the spool of thread gets way down.
I love to predict when I'll run out.
I was way off with my prediction because my bobbins ran out.
All 8 of them were empty.

So I grabbed my supplies and wound bobbins,
changed the needle, cleaned and oiled my baby.
We are all ready for the marathon that will (hopefully) happen this week.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
We sure did.
It was a camo sweatshirt Christmas for the grands.
I'm so looking forward to the new year! 

Today I'm linking up with

I love a good bobbin-winding marathon, too. (I need to buy even more bobbins!)
Glad you're feeling better. Such a terrible time of year to get sick - all that dark and gloom so close to the solstice makes it hard to rally!

Ramona said...

I'm sorry you've been sick and hope that it has left you for good. Your clues look great!

Mary said...

Merry sickmas hit me last week. It is hanging on. I'm up for suggestions how to overcome the malaise... glad you feel better!

Good job keeping up, despite the cold! I love getting to the end of a spool, too--shows some progress!

You're making great progress, in spite of it all!

A sugar treat that goes along with the bobbin winding is very important when you are not feeling the best. Love your part 3 triangle in a square.

Hope you've completely recovered now, the flu is nasty, nasty stuff. You've done a great job keeping up with the mystery. Looking forward to seeing all these pieces come together.
