As a lover of the Mitford books by Jan Karon, anytime I'm sick I think of the "Mitford crud." Not sure what I have had this week, but "The Crud" is close enough. It's probably a combination of a virus and my allergies. Perhaps, the unsung jewel of retirement is that I could stay home and just be sick. I didn't have to call for a substitute. I didn't have to worry about lesson plans. I didn't have to decide if I was sick enough to use a valuable sick leave day. I knew all was not well when I had to call my friend Debbie and cancel our sewing session for Monday afternoon. There's been plenty of soup and hot tea. I'm having trouble drinking my beloved Community Coffee (I knew I had something at this point) I've finally graduated to left-over fried rice and hamburger patties. Naps have been heavenly:) Gratefully, I'm on the mend.
To make this sewing related, I did have a productive morning earlier this week. I cut civil war reproduction fabric for a swap later this month. I finished the binding on a quilt, but its a special project that I can't reveal. This is the backing so the secret is safe.
Recently, I rejoined The Quilt Show (internet TV program). While doing binding, I watched a couple of programs. I'll have to do this more often. It's a big improvement on daytime TV.
