Feeling human....

I've been in my bed... sick with a cold.... and finally am feeling human again

I haven't done anything useful (I slept for 3 days)

 ...... but I found a few little things I did a while ago......

.... thought I would show you where fairies place their babies...


My friend Christine made and gave me some mushrooms and grass so they went in a thimble....


... they are very cute... and tiny... 


this little thimble will sit in my cupboard... for grandiegirls to come and look for fairies 
(they do live in my house)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm always on the search for good sized storage boxes for various projects

I found a great storage box for those 12 1/2" square blocks I am collecting in block swaps....


the boxes are made for scrapbooking pages .... perfect size for a growing collection and has tidied up a shelf so well


... this is another whole quilt I have done.....


.. bigger than last time... this one is 6" square.....

this time done using a satin type fabric 
a few tension issues - but I'm having fun

Righto, Gotto Go... looking for fairies.....
(maybe time to ease off the lemon and honey... and whisky)

Love the thimble too! I hope you find the fairies!! Battling a cold here too, must be the time of the year! Am thinking a good stiff G & T might help!!

Hope you leave the cold behind soon.......but don't send it my way! Those mushrooms are so cute. Good idea on the scrapbooking box, a Spotties birthday voucher arrived in my inbox today so now I know what to spend it on.

I think 3 days in bed when you're sick is VERY useful, my dear. I hope you feel better soon! Love your little mushrooms, and what a treat for the grandies....I remember things like that in my own grandma's home. I am gobsmacked at your quilting prowess, sweetie, you are creating gorgeous things!!!

Sorry to hear you've been sick - its no fun at all - sleep is the best ever medicine. I know fairies must live at your house - I'm sure they sew at night!!!

Beautiful whole cloth, your feathers are gorgeous. I think the grandchildren are going to be delighted with your fairy magic! Did you get the box at a scrap book store? I have a Decor container I use for freezing pastry that is a similar size, must reconsider using it in the sewing room if its 12.5"!

So sorry to read how unwell you have been. It is so frustrating being stuck in bed when there are so many other things you would rather be doing.
Get well quickly!
Gorgeous work with the thimble. It is great!!
And more lovely quilting!! Love it!
Get stuck into the whiskey. You will feel great and it may actually help you get better! :)
