I got a code in by doze....

With the help of some friends in the above photo, and lots of rest, I am feeling better. I doubt any of that helped to make me better. It just had to run its course but at least they brought a little comfort to a coughing, sneezing, stuffy head.....well, you get the picture. I think my little sister passed it around because after our visit to San Diego, my older sis got it too and like me, is still fighting it. My mom is in the hospital because of it too, not because of the severity of it but because of her age. Hopefully, she'll get out today. I'll be there on Saturday to mom-sit. :o)

While curled up in the recliner and catching up on every movie on HBO, Showtime, TNT, Hallmark, etc., etc., I got my March BOM done. It was a big one (for me) and I didn't think I'd EVER get it finished. I guess that's what it took. Me practically nailed to a chair to "git `er done".

I love this pattern. In case you missed it in an earlier post, it's Berry Picking Party by Crabapple Hill. I just love the old scale and jelly jars on this block.

I traced my next block but it'll have to wait just a bit longer before I start stitching. I have some blocks to make for a swap. Ah, no rest for the weary?
