Being Sick and Trying to Kick it!!

Everyone is sick with something or another once in awhile especially this time of the year or so it seems.  That sick bug has hit me today with a sore throat and feeling like a train ran me over.

It could be the running hobby I have taken a liking to these past couple of months:)  It is only 2 days a week, 25 minutes a shot on the treadmill,but I think I need to keep that water/sweat ratio in check a bit more.

  It could be from all the stinkin' flower bulbs I planted in the last few days.  The temps were down quite a bit in NC at around the 50 mark.  I had a jacket on zipped and then unzipped.  Sweaty from digging 170 something holes altogether.  Spring will tell the truth.  Hoping my rewards are plenty!

Very anxious to take my own snapshots of my own gardens!

As for the sewing front where things are not so Spring oriented,  I knocked out that table runner for my house this Christmas a few weeks ago.

I threw in a lot of quilting designs for this runner to get my feet extra wet and get over some fear of branching out.

I saw this design recently on Youtube and went for it the next day!  Pat on the back for me;)  There is also this blog that has been inspiring me quite a bit too. 

Practice makes perfect.  Eventually.  For now,experimenting my heart out!

All those curls are pretty exhilarating to create.

December is right around the corner.  In my wishful thinking;)

Blitzen lives with this girl now so "tis the season" folks------haha!!  25% off coupon from my LQS does the creative soul just fine.

Josh (my #1 VET!!) and Ayden went to dinner at Applebees tonight to celebrate Veteran's Day and I am here enjoying talking to ya'll and sneaking in some movies on ABC family:)  Hoping they are returning with some soup for this sick mommy.

Happy Veteran's Day!  

Have you said thank you to a Vet today or hugged one?  Be sure to recognize our great warriors in some way today!
