Good Sleep by Susan L.

  I think getting a good sleep is one of the finer things in life. I slept until one thirty in the afternoon yesterday and was back in bed and asleep by eleven last night. This cold is giving the old body a run for its money. A couple more rests like that and hopefully I'll have the thing licked.
  My new crazy quilt is giving me something sedentary to do to help pass the time. It's coming along nicely as I've sat watching movies, sipping tea and sewing merrily away. It's surprising how much is done. It doesn't take long to develop calluses on the ends of my fingers and thumb from holding the needle. It makes me appreciate the seamstresses of days past before there were sewing machines. The hours it must've taken to sew a dress!
  I haven't quiet figured out what I'll do to fancy up the quilt. It has a floral theme so maybe I'll embroider some flowers or possibly leaves on the plain fabric pieces. There's the recent purchase of butterfly sequins that could be added as well. I've got purple buttons to join the layers together, in this case a polar fleece blanket will be the back. Beads and baubles add their own decorative touch, too.
  One step at a time! Let's get the top pieced together and double stitched.

  1. I know computers can give another computers a virus - but I wonder about transferring to your readers. I have the worse cold. :-)

    It is amazing how much you can get done just vegging in front of the TV. I've recently renewed an interest in crocheting. Keeping it simple - but it is amazing how much you can get done watching one show on television.

    You certainly keep busy! I'm in awe.
