So there I was all ready to be a prolific blogger, stitcher and crafter. Then it hit me -- the Ugly Monster Virus. No ordinary cold, it slammed me flat on my back like nothing I'd experienced in a long, long time. The only thing I could do for the first couple of days was watch TV, and the more mindless the better. Monster Virus actually let me read by the third day, but stitching was out of the question due to my achy and stuffy head.
Luckily I was better by the time we were supposed to leave for our beach vacation. Ahhhh, what a good thing some ocean air is when you're recovering from the crud. It took care of that cough quickly and I was able to enjoy some lovely time with my family at the beach.
I did get quite a bit done on "Love" by New York Dreamer. And once again I'm stitching on black fabric, which I like a lot because of the color contrast on it. Pretty pattern, isn't it?
