Happy Sunday everyone!! After a taste of winter last Friday (one of the few that we've seen), it's a beautiful sunny day here. Makes you realize that Spring is just around the corner!!
It's been a busy couple of weeks around Chez Roman recently. Nothing earth shattering, but more that while trying to recuperate from this vicious bug, I took it easy - a lot of sleeping and a lot of sewing! I've been so tired with this!! But, I'm feeling much better now (thank you to all that left comments)!! I know that I'm not the only one that has been hit by some kind of malady recently.
First, I finally took Sun and Moon to be framed and had it back in three days!! That's record service. It was sitting around here collecting dust and then one day a coupon for 60% off plus an additional $10 came in the mail, so there was certainly no reason to let it continue to collect dust! (Note: there is some white thing on the right hand cherub. It's not there in real life but just may be a reflection of something - it's very bright here today).
I managed to get a little more done on Ann Rayner. I just have a little bit more of the four sided alphabet and the Greek styled border underneath and I get to the good parts!!
Because I haven't had a ton of energy (although it's starting to return now - just wish I could get rid of the plugged head and coughing), I decided to tackle a couple quilting projects. One is a quilt called the Cotton Club that I had been receiving as a BOM:
Every month a blogging friend, Julie would tell me how she was caught up with the current month's blocks, and I was just staring at mine. So I took action and cranked those babies out:
Then I worked on the Farmer's Wife Quilt a little bit more:
Now that I'm caught up with the Cotton Club and because working on the Farmer's Wife consistently drives me up the wall sometimes (meaning I still suffer from Crafter's ADD), I picked my next project. I had put this kit together last year and then got caught up in other things, so this is the next quilting victim:
Recently, I came across sewing article that is very much dear to my heart in one of the boxes I've been going through. It's a sewing kit - owned by a WWII veteran. That veteran was my father. He was a Canadian (at the time - he later became a US citizen) and in the Canadian Navy. I tried to find a picture of him in uniform, but they're somewhere buried in a box that I haven't gone through yet.
And last but not least, Nicola recently asked for pics of Fur Babies sleeping. I didn't get around to taking pictures in time for her contest, but realized that I haven't posted pics of my Fur Baby in quite a while, so here are just a few:
Such a cute face. And what a pink nose!! Poodles and poodle mixes have a tendency for their noses to turn pink in the colder weather. And notice those long eye lashes!!
I know that there is a lot of talk about the evil word verification thing going on. I've jumped back and forth about taking it off. I think that it's off now. I had turned it off and within three hours I got a lot of silly Anonymous comments. I thought that they were actually appearing in my Comments section on my blog so I turned it back on. But then I realized that they are being sent to SPAM so I've turned it off again. If you comment and notice that it's still on, let me know and I'll make sure that it's turned off.
That's it for me. I hope that everyone has a wonderful week!! And again, thank you for all your comments. I really love hearing from you!!
