I feel a bit guilty to say it since so much of the country is freezing but the weather here in Georgia is downright gorgeous.
Yesterday the girl that walks Macbeth offered to plant the pansies that had been sitting in front of my garage for at least a week. I bought them the day I came down with the flu. It was nice to sit outside in the sunshine for a bit and watch the neighbor's kitten "help" with the planting!
I had forgotten how expensive it can be to be sick. No, I'm not talking about the Chinese Restaurant's repeated deliveries of Won Ton Soup, nor refilling the tray of cough drops, eye drops, vapor rub and Tylenol next to the bed. I'm talking about the deliveries that UPS and the Post Office are making to my front door...I'm talking about internet pity purchases.
Don't get me wrong as of yet I'm not unhappy with anything I found. I just can't believe I've found so much!
The is this new hexagon quilt that fits into my collection so well...it has lots of my favorite fabrics...it has a flour sack on the back (which means I now have quilts with backs from chicken feed sacks, sugar sacks, flour sacks, and corn...wonder what I'm missing....)
I needed gray...
So with the help of fabric.com I now have lots of gray. You get the picture. There are some books from Amazon...some Kaffe Fasset from Hancocks...and a new pair of pajamas (with scottie dogs on them) from Overstock.com. Glad I'm feeling well enough to sew again!
