Getting Over Pneumonia...

Ahhh, feeling much better!  Of course, this week hubby and Daughter 2 both got sick, but both are on the mend, too.  Pneumonia is certainly not fun!  Glad it's gone just in time for Christmas.

I took a shot of the Gee's Bend quilt in our backyard before I packed it up.  One last look....

In non quilty news, I've always wanted to learn how to knit socks.  (Why?  I don't know! I'm not even a knitter!)  So last week I signed up for a class on Craftsy.  At first I was all thumbs!  I mean, really, 5 knitting needles at once??!!

But I finally started getting the hang of it....

and before I knew it, I had a sock toe!  I still have a long way to go - must still learn how to do the heel.

I highly recommend the Craftsy classes.  They have knitting, crochet, Tunisian crochet, quilting, jewelry making, bread making, etc., etc.  And many of their classes are on sale, but you'd better hurry because the sale ends today.

Here's a little discovery I made recently at the grocery store - it REALLY helped me survive the pneumonia.  Oh, this is SO good.  But don't do as I did the first time I ate it:  read the directions.  You're only supposed to eat the mushrooms and corn - the other vegetables (for flavoring only) are meant to be discarded.  Haha - thought something in there was mighty chewy!  :)  I found this soup on the ethnic aisle, not the soup aisle.

Check here to see a last minute Christmas gift I made yesterday.  You might notice on the sidebar that I'm now accepting pre-orders for Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts, due out in Spring.  Yay!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Glad to hear you're on the mend. Quilt is brilliant. I'm sure it will be in your family for generations and help the memories to live on. Merry Christmas. xx
