A Week Lost, Sort Of

Sometime each spring, I seem to get laid low with a plague of some sort. This week, it struck. I am on the mend now, and it is a good thing, because it is my Quilt Retreat weekend.

While feeling sorry for myself, I finished a knitting UFO.

This is the Eyre of Romance Jane Shawl.

My Ravelry project page says that I started it in April of last year, I am not sure how it ended up in hibernation, but it was the perfect project for when one's head is feeling fluffy.

Today, I was feeling better, so I started getting my projects ready for retreat.

I have been busy fusing interfacing onto fabric pieces. It is much easier, at home. I am out of interfacing now, so I am not sure what else I will take.

Spring is still creeping into our yard. The overnight temperatures are still near zero.

The forsythia is in bloom.

We have flowers in the sunniest parts of the yard.

Doug doesn't understand why we don't let him play (dig) in the flowers.


  1. Have a good time at Retreat! I love seeing pics of your spring flowers, they must be welcome after a cold snowy winter.

  2. Urgghhh...this week I've been laid low with (what I think are) allergies. Or a cold. Either way I've been miserable. And our weather flips between sunny and warm and cloudy and cold. I have no idea what to wear, lol. Have fun at your retreat! Looks like you've packed some good stuff.

  3. I love seeing pictures of Doug! Dolly, too. Your shawl looks like it would be warm. I'm glad you're feeling better. Have fun at your retreat.
