Give Thanks....for Germs!

I had a very pleasant Sunday curled up on the sofa in front of the fire doing the stitchery for Jenny's "Give Thanks" BOM.

Then this morning I woke up with the beginnings of a cold - the horrid sore throat bit that feels as if you've swallowed razor blades, and pins and possibly a seam ripper too. 
Feeling very sorry for myself I returned to the sofa and the comfort of the fire and am delighted to say I have finished my little wall hanging this afternoon. 
My beloved made me a little wire hanger for it and here it is, all ready to go on 1st February when Jenny will reveal the first mini quilt to go in that cream space.  Thank you Michelle for sending me the link to this lovely project. 
Here it is in situ by the fire - why didn't I notce those coffee mugs when I was taking/uploading/selecting/cropping/copying the photo?  Maybe they just appeared as I added the photo to this post!
Before I was struck down I finished layering all the rows of blocks for my sampler quilt so I'm ready to get quilting as soon as I have the strength in my arms and brain cells.  How was your weekend?  I hope it was a good one.


  1. Your stove looks so inviting and I love warm cups to put my coffee in. I hope you feel better soon. Maybe you can do some more hand work while your getting over your nasty cold. Love the little embroidery you did.

  2. Ditto, I love your fire, and the gorgeous red kettle! The stitchery looks great I um haven't started mine yet:o( But I do have few finishes;o)
    We have secret party planning going on in our house this week sew it is keepin me busy after that I can make a start!
    Have a great week and wishing you a quick recovery!

  3. Hope you feel better soon, Lis. LOve your fire place, it looks so cozy.

  4. I hope you are feeling better today!

    We all have one too now! I am catching up on visiting blogs and my Cathedral Window quilt. The kids, all of them, slept 4 hour naps yesterday.
