We have had over 100 inches of snow here this winter! It has been bitterly cold here on and off too, and poor little Meggie is tired of having to bundle up to go outside. When she gets back inside, her little legs are shivering. Spring can't come soon enough!
Believe it or not, even though I had the influenza vaccine in the fall, I came down with some sort of terrible upper respiratory infection, which is finally starting to subside. I can't remember when I have been so weak and felt so ill. The persistent cough was the worst, and I spent a week having to sleep in my recliner, sipping on water and sucking cough lozenges all night.
Today I feel like I have turned a corner, thank heavens! As you can imagine, my needle and thread were not moving very well for days, but here and there I managed to take a few stitches.
Before the worst of things took hold of me, I managed to complete another page of 'Quaker Christmas', which I've decided will be an ongoing wonderful project amidst some other wonderful designs that I want to stitch.After all, it is lovely to keep alive, the spirit of Christmas in our hearts all year long!
This afternoon, our daughter and her husband are having a little birthday party for our granddaughter, Ella, who will be turning 3 years old next week. I am so happy to be feeling well enough now to go out, and it should be a wonderful time with all of the little ones. Hope to show you some pictures next time!
This week, our daughter-in-law sent us this adorable picture of our little granddaughter,Kyleigh, now 10 months old, such a sweet, happy little girl. They live a few thousand miles away from us, and we are just aching to cuddle and kiss this little one very soon!
We might live far away from one another, but you are always in my thoughts, dear friends. It is wonderful that our lives connect with one another through the threads that have bound us all together in friendship.
Blessings in Stitches & Friendship,
