Thanks for the love!
Thank you so much for all your get well wishes you've left me in comments and email! You are all too sweet, but it is much appreciated!!
It turns out the fever I had blamed on my cold was actually due to a kidney infection! Awful awful awful thing to have, but once treated recovery is fairly swift. I feel like I shall be back to my normal blogging, crafting and cooking ways very very soon. I have actually decided to embroider my logo for a new group I just joined. I'll tell you all about those fantabulous gals in another post. They all deserve their own post, they are that cool.
Anyway, back to the logo. Since I have been under the weather with a mandate to rest, there is plenty of time to embroider. Embroidery is the perfect convelesence craft, no? As long as there is decent light all you need to do is use your hands and you can create beautiful things. It's a great way for a sicky like me to feel useful! I hope to have it done tonight, so I can snap a pic of if for tomorrow. Plus I need to send it off to the powers that be by the 6th, so I gotta get cracking!
Also, yesterday was the deadline for the Brooch Swap for all you swappy gals. If I had my wits about me when I set that date I would have seen that it was a Sunday, and the post is closed Sundays! Der! So if you had to send yours today, no big deal. I created a flickr group for us called Little Lovelies Brooch Swap, so when you get your brooch be sure to post it for all to see. We want to admire each others handiwork! I do still plan on sending you all a thank you gift-most of them are done, but getting sick sort of curbed productivity if ya know what I mean.

oh hon.. kidney infection's are no fun at all. I sure hope you recovery quickly.

Now.. we all want to see this embroidery. I need to start it again. Once soccer season starts it will give me something to do while I am sitting in the stands.

Hope you are feeling better Claire!
