Steps forward



I have had a R&R day, with a good book in bed, sleeping most of the time, and now the flu symptoms are nearly gone!

I could not let this be a day without any progress - you know me - a day without anything quilt related is a wasted day :-)

I have something else going as well, but it is less than 3 months until Christmas and Secrecy Season has started in my sewing corner.

I am not making much in for Christmas in my sewing corner this year.
DH and I have planned a quiet pre-Christmas season after a very tough year health wise.
I am enjoying every day now - even a flu day, as a flu will pass within days.
Steep hills puts life into new perspectives indeed. I do not sweat the small things that much anymore......

I am looking forward to attending a weekend class in my guild, on Triangle Paper. I have used Triangle Paper a lot, but I am looking forward to bring me new little sewing machine, spending time with very nice people and a nice teacher, doing nothing but sewing and enjoying for the whole weekend. I am sure I will learn some new tricks too.

Her er det de små skritt som gjelder, - så lurt at det ble en rolig jul. I blandt må vi stikke fingeren i jorda og kjenne på temperaturen :-)
Å nei, ikke julegavetid: Blir det en stille blogger på Skårer nå?
Ønsker deg en trivlig helg med ny symasking og godt sylag, - bli bra snart!

:: Here I can see it's the small steps that counts, and I liked the idea of you and hubby and a quiet X-mas time.
Oh, no, not X-mas presents in the furure pickture: Will there be a quiet blogger from your corner of Norway now?
Have a great weekend with friends, new machine, - get weel soon!

wow-you have had a time, haven't you? I'm a bit late catching up on blogs--so am now just reading about your little accident. I'm glad to hear you are progressing so well. But I think a nice quiet weekend, sewing at your own pace and just enjoying the presence of other quilters is just what you need! Have fun and hope you stay healthy and SAFE! :)
