Feeling sorry for myself...

I've been feeling awfully sorry for myself the last few days... After having that terrible tummy bug a couple of weeks ago, then a cold for a week, I came down with a really bad flu (Not the Swine flu lol) Shivers and body aches, not to mention a terrible cough. Hubby and my eldest son Jay, have also been ill along with me, so it's been a very icky household lately! Thankfully after a few days spent in bed, I'm starting to perk up again.
Above is a picture of my daughter Breanna after a birthday party. The party was at a lovely little place called 'Dolled up' in Geelong which is like a mini salon. They get their hair, nails & make-up done, and get to make some pretty sparkly things while dressing up. What a brilliant idea! The girls all had a ball. Breanna just loves this blue hair peice...

I did manage to finish this quilt today though, it's been sitting for so long waiting to be quilted... I love the colors... I think I'll make a larger one using just 5" squares with the one outside border...
This one is a cot size, and it will be heading for my Oz Handmade store soon...


Yesterday I had some fun making these cute headbands...


And before getting sick I made some key rings with the hardware I told you about in the last post...


And some quilted doorstops... Who doesn't need a doorstop or two? I know I've got them scattered through my house... I've made a few different ones, also listed on Oz Handmade...


Well sorry for all my complaining... I kinda missed Sew Mama Sew's huge giveaway event. I managed to see about 3 different blogs, but I just wasn't up to sitting at the computer... Maybe it's time for a laptop...


Terri from Sew Fantastic, who is the host for our Kitchen Swap, and also my partner, received her parcel that I sent. I included a table runner, coasters, tea cosy, trivet, and a wine bag. She has just posted about her parcel, and said she loved it all - thankfully - sigh!


I hope you are all happy and healthy!


Best wishes,

Jenelle

Big hugs to you! It sounds like you've been having a rough time of it lately. On the bright side-- it looks like you've been productive and have made some beautiful things!!!! I'm loving those headbands (and, of course, the gorgeous quilt!). And how cool is your daughter with that blue extension??? :)
