Well the pneumonia is gone!! Hallelujah! Boy, all that coughing makes you tired; but my lungs are now clear. I am still on a steroid and an inhaler to keep the cough at bay….
I can start to shop..
Never you mind that it is my daughters 14th birthday tomorrow, much of my shopping has been on-line and in jammies!!

Last week I did not get a chance to mention that I won a giveaway.
Michelle at Dresden Quilter was giving away these beautiful fat quarter batiks. I do not know how, but I do not have any batiks, so this is such a happy win!

Thank you Michelle!!

Also, my 9 patch blocks arrived. I believe that I mentioned that Lurline was kind enough to sponsor me in Christine’s 9-patch swap. Christine was kind enough to let me play along. I love them all so much!

Short post need to shop!!


  1. There is never a good time to be sick but the holidays are the worst time! Glad you're better. Happy Shopping.

  2. So glad to hear that you are feeling better. Definitely start shopping now!! It is so much more fun when you are feeling good. Love the batiks that you won and the nine patches will make a sweet quilt. Like Stephanie said, Happy Shopping!

  3. Oh, and Happy 14th to your daughter!!

  4. Hope you continue to feel better. Way to go on the batiks win. You know i didn't have any either until recently I bought a few to make my friend a table runner.
    The nine patch swap looked like fun. It's so nice of Lurline to sponsor you! They are beautiful.

  5. So happy to hear you are feeling better. It's especially hard to be sick during the holiday's, so I wish you well as you try and prepare for the big event.
    Happy 14th to your daughter!

  6. I didn't know you were sick! Sure glad you are feeling better. That was a great win. :)

  7. So very glad that you are better...and can now enjoy the holidays.

    I think I am going to start counting the swaps you join...just for amusement...or would I be able to keep up?
