Hello everyone :)

I haven't been around for a bit as I've had influenza since the end of December. I still have a lingering cough but I'm finally on the mend.

I borrowed this video from another Blogger....Plays with Needles....as I thought it was lovely. All the amazing hand work. Sigh.

I have some deadlines I have to meet sewing wise for the end of January so I better get BUSY!!!!

One thing is the CQJP2015 challenge. Fortunately I took the time to put my 12 squares together before I got sick.

Thank heavens I did because I don't think I could face that at the moment. My enthusiasm and energy level is at a big zero :)

Looking at them now I must have been in a beige frame of mind. Never mind. I'll bling them up :)

I have a new little camera and we aren't friends yet. My old point and shoot died after I dropped it...twice :(  My new camera is not as intuitive as my old camera.

I'll just have to read the instructions I guess. What a concept.....read the instructions...har har. Oh I shouldn't laugh because my ribs hurt from coughing...ouch.

Ah well:)

Take care I'll be back soon to show you what I've been up to.


  1. Good to hear you are on the mend :)

  2. So sorry you have been on the puny list - that's just so not fair. The flu that's running rampant at the moment isn't something to be taken lightly that's for sure. I'm glad you are on the mend. Take care of you!!

  3. Sorry to hear that you have been sick Mary Ann, hope you are all better very soon and back to creating. Sending you some virtual chicken soup!

  4. I got that bug a few days before NY Eve and just now am feeling creative, though I still have a little of the cough. Terry got over his much sooner than I, probably because he took Alka Seltzer Plus, which I hate.

    Glad you felt like posting.
    xx, Carol

  5. Good to have you back Mary Ann - sorry that you have been unwell and hope that you are soon back to full sewing strength! I have almost finished my first CQJP block but I don't have all the rest made up yet. Got a few ideas though. xx

  6. Glad you are up and posting. I have a nw camera as well and my Big project for the year is a crazy quilt. I'll be watching to see what you do with yours. Isn't that a lovely video!!!

  7. I'm sorry that you've been ill and happy to hear you're getting better.
    The video you shared is lovely and such amazing handwork. I wish I could do that!
    I look forward to see how you will decorate your quilt blocks and finish by your deadline.

  8. Glad to hear you are on the mend. you need to take your time and fully recover.
    That was an interesting video. thanks for sharing.

  9. That's horrible. What a long time to be feeling under the weather. Be much better soon Mary Ann...


  10. I hope you are feeling better soon!

    I look forward to seeing your CQJP 2015 blocks.

  11. Hope you are better now. Your beige fabrics look lovely


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
