Down but not out!

Talk about down...two weeks of that awful bug...missed a week of work...and didn't even feel like sewing...or blogging.  I managed to keep up with some of my blog reading, but it was hard to watch all the great projects going on and not being able to work on mine.  But, I am on the mend and got to spend most of my day today sewing.

I thought my Cathedral Windows Pillow was quite appropriate for sewing on a sunday afternoon and I got this much done.
I'm not completely settled on the layout of the fabric but at least I'm to the stage where I can experiment!

I can't wait to start sewing those curves and completing the windows!

Throughout the week, I did manage to do a little work on my embroidery and here's a peek at our latest lighthouses (even though I haven't removed all the markings or pressed them yet, sorry mom!) 
Mine...
and mom's....
We both have one more to go!

Also today I worked on a special project for a very special friend who happened to have a birthday today.  I can't post it til I give it to her, so I'll wait and share it for fabric tuesday.

Anyway, it feels good to be back to sewing and my blog.  That's what really makes me happy!  
  Hope you're keeping well and busy and happy too.

That's a wonderful set of lighthouses being embroidered..I can't wait to see the finished product. I'm so glad you're feeling better too.

Glad to hear that you are finally feeling a little better. Two weeks is much too long to be under the weather. Your fabric selection for the Cathedral Windows is beautiful. And yours and your Mom's lighthouse stitcheries are fantastic.

Beautiful fabric for the cathedral window piece. I can't wait to see that one when it's complete. Love the lighthouses too!
