A New Years Mystery, and other chatter.

I am so anxious to feel better, but this, what ever this is, still has a hold on me. I have spent the last few days resting, drinking gallons of liquid, taken every decongestant I had around here. I am getting a new supply today and a humidifier, thanks to a friend going to the store for me later today.
But enough about that.
I am so happy I have a laptop, really comes in handy when you are laying around. I have caught up on visiting blogs, sorting files, and organizing & deleting photos.

This is the time of year everything needs to be re-orginized, re-considered, and donated if not needed. I usually start January by sorting & re folding all my fabric. I find that is a pleasurable chore for me, a good way to start the new year.
I don't think I will be doing that for a few days but it is at the top of my to-list.

Bonnie at Quiltville has a New Year's Eve, mystery quilt I want to start soon. I have pulled some of the fabric in preperation for that. You can find the link here.

I was able to do a little hand quilting yesterday on my Northern Star quilt. It has been sitting in basket by my chair waiting, I hadn't touched it since thanksgiving. I do enjoy the needle in hand and the feel of the quilted texture.

The tempature has warmed, the snow has all melted.

Happy Quilting!


  1. I'm glad to read you're taking care of yourself and that humidifier should do wonders. I love friends that go to the store for "us" - they're a Godsend! Also, I enjoyed clicking on the quilt (lovely!) and seeing your stitching. It looks great. What a fantastic quilt. I really dig that design you have going.

  2. I stopped by to wish you a Happy New Year Janet, may 2009 brings you lots of joy and happiness!

  3. Hope you are feeling better soon...

    I have been so restless the last couple of days..I want to sort and clean and get rid...but I can't until the Christmas tree and decorations are gone...The DH is still in holiday mode...So I've got my to-do list ready for next week! Look out dust and cupboards here I come!

  4. Hope you are gettting well. But down time is always a good time to regroup and revive as well as do some hand stitching.

  5. Feel better soon. It will take a while for you to get your energy back after this bout. Don't wait too long to go to the doctor. =) I know how you are ....! Oh, I just remember Chai Tea helped me with the congestion. I think it might be the black pepper in it. It may be worth a try. It tastes good too I think. I will be leaving for Portland soon. Take care! Karen
