I was cranky and not feeling well most of the weekend. My thigh hurt and I didn't know why. But my mail box kept me from getting too cranky. I received my Stitchery Swap project from Rose. Isn't is adorable? If you live in the northern hemisphere you need to check out her blog. She has posted photos of spring in Australia and they are gorgeous.
Speaking of the Stitchery Swap Beth in Australia now has a blog. Please check it out here. Be sure to say hello to her and welcome her to the blog world.
Other mail goodies included 12 Barbie FQs from Carol. They won't last long in my stash. I think I'm going to make a simple charm quilt from them or maybe a few small doll quilts. That will be a great way to practice machine quilting.
From Anne I received a goodie package in exchange for a package of fabric. She sent me this lovely FQ of soldier fabric, a pin keeper, some chocolate and a wallet pattern from Lazy Girl Designs.
And if that isn't enough good stuff I won a drawing at Wildcraft Farm. Janet will be sending me her latest Quilt Card pattern. How cool is all of that?
Now for the bad news. The reason I was feeling achy and cranky all weekend is because I have Shingles. Yup, that's right. After an absolutely awful night last night I woke up with a rash on my right thigh, hip, tummy and back. I knew I had to get to the doctor. And, sure enough, I have Shingles. Lucky for me I caught it early and have started the antiviral medicine and have pain medication to help me through the night. At this point wearing anything other than a sundress is uncomfortable. Needless to say I worked from home today and will probably stay home until I can wear something other than a sundress.
So that's my news for today. Hopefully I'm well enough to go the Deutsche Bank Golf Tournament this weekend. I'm ready for yearly Tiger Woods fix.
