Streptococcal pharyngitis

I have tonsillitis :( The kids are poorly too, although theirs is not bacterial.
So for me there's mostly been this:





I'm in the same boat as Kelli (read her post because I was basically going to say the same sort of stuff!!), I haven't been commenting although I have speed read some blogs but I just don't have the energy to be a good active blogger - so I'm sorry.

I've done the odd bit of hand sewing while lying on the sofa and I'll show you all when I can be bothered!!

There's just a couple of notices I wanted to share.

Firstly there's some great giveaways going on, some I meant to blog about last week so you might need to hurry but please check them all out if you get a chance:

- Duke Says Sew What is having a wonderful giveaway of fabric in one of my favourite colours, as well as some DS!
- Poppy Makes... is looking for a name for her adorable new puppy and giving away a charm pack to those that throw in their opinions :)
- Lori at Adventures in Fabric is celebrating her 50+ followers (now 75!!) by giving away a charm pack
- last but certainly not least the fabulous Canadian Abroad is having a sponsored giveaway from The Village Haberdashery (open to UK residents only)
** In my absence I failed to include the cute and generous giveaway from Suz at Patchwork n Play, so check that out too!!**

Once you've checked those out you might also want to go look at Prints To Polka Dots they have 20% off Flannels, 20% off Riley Blake, and a great clearance on haberdashery items, including felt, buttons and ric rac!

Finally a reminder that I'm having the fat quarter Stale Stash Swap in one week!! So get your fabric ready and think about what you want to offer to swap :) Please help spread the word so we can get as many swappers as possible

Charm About You

  7. I didn't have boys so I don't know if watching Transformers is good or not. I do know being sick is such a bummer. I hope you feel better soon. At least you are not watching Spongebob Squarepants. I like the cartoon, but it gets on my nerves so quickly!
