the edge of the earth....



Just a short post to let you know I haven't fallen off the end of the earth...just feel as if I have.

A respiratory viral infection has me ensconced under 3 quilts even though the thermometer outside is reading 80 degrees. I can't believe there was once a time I liked chicken soup...now I never want to see another a bowl of it...one good thing to come out of this week is I got to eat some of my Walker's shortbread and I still lot 4 pounds. Now how often to you see that in the same sentence!


My only big excitement the past few days was a knock on the door by one of the guys who works on my yard. "Did I know there was a cat on the roof of my house?"
Yes we have another Dobby cat rescue story...the yard guys got a ladder and lured Dobby to the edge with a chicken leg (works every time!) Still have no idea how he got up there.

So I haven't done much sewing...mainly folding fabric, looking through old books and magazine, and organizing photos on the computer (when I can sit upright that is!)

Here is a photo from last month when my guild was selling tickets on our current donation quilt.

Oh Dobby! Good lord. Bummed you're sick, friend but I did learn I'm not ready for being sick. No chicken soup on hand. Good reminder (sorry at you're expense). And I think I'll fold some fabric tomorrow.

PS. You're guild is so happenin'

Sp sorry you have been "under" during all "the" nice "weather". (Did you read between the lines?)
How many lives has Dobby used up, do you think?

Good rescue - I guess you need chicken
legs on hand ;-)
I've had a similar virus and it's taken weeks to run its course - best wishes to you!

Darn! I hope you feel better by now. It's a shame to be sick now with this wonderful spring weather.

I hope you are feeling better soon. You got me with that blue and white Orange Peel?-Robbing Peter? antique photo. What is it about those simple two color quilts that is so appealing. I had my own cat story this week. I got home from work after 9pm on Wednesday to see a large crowd in my yard. It seems the neighbor's cat was up one of my oak trees and they were fretting. They even called the fire department who came and told them the cats always come down eventually. She did the next day. The food is good bait.
