sewing therapy

I have not been by here in a little while because I simply haven't felt like I wanted to. The past couple of weeks have been sad and stressful; the sudden tragic death of a friend and sickness with the children which brings a lot of extra stress.

However, I have been channelling my energies to get long overdue projects completed for Adrien's birthday in a couple of weeks. The cowboy quilt which I started ages ago is finally finished. It is supposed to take on a crinkly kind of effect once washed, but unfortunately we have not had a dry day for weeks, so that will have to wait.

I have also started (but not finished yet) a bunny too from this pattern, and a birthday crown for him.

Sorry to hear you're having some tough and sad times. I hope the sewing therapy is working. I've had at least one sick kid for three weeks now, today is the first day they're all three healthy. And everytime I call the doctor she says "it's the swine flu!" (how many times can one get it?!)
