Beads and a Nice Swim

What a gorgeous weekend! Too bad I didn't get to enjoy it too much. I was sick all weekend. Last week I knew it was coming... just had that little tickly premonition that a cold was building inside me.

Saturday I went ahead and attended my scheduled event. We had our monthly crafty group meeting at church. And we overlapped with another group and ate lunch together. I had prepared the main dish. Turns out I made way more than we needed, so I put the leftovers in the freezer and hope to use it for my next gathering of cousins which is coming up in a couple of weeks. I accidentally planned ahead!

Our crafters group had arranged to get a beading lesson. We didn't have a long time to work, but we got several pairs of earrings made. Most of us donated our earrings to sell at our upcoming boutique. I made jewelry years ago, but had given it up. I forgot how much fun it is to make earrings! Maybe I'll get back into that business, ever so slightly. Anyway, we had a fun crafters gathering. I'm so happy that group got started! I really like it and enjoy working together while getting to know other people a little better.

Today I skipped church because of being sick. If I'd felt better I would have gone for a nice, long walk. It was such a gorgeous, sunny, blue-sky day!

I was hoping to have more sewing done than I do at this point. Getting sick put a kabosh on that.. no energy to sit in the sewing room and be productive. So instead of showing you some quilty photos, I'll show you this...

..what would you do if you were swimming along, and this showed up next to you?? Eek!

Sorry to hear you were ill on a nice weekend. Cold and rainy here. It would have been a good weekend to be ill, if there is such a thing.

Being sick totally railroads one at times! Hope you feel better very soon.

I've never tried beading but know several people who enjoy it immensely. My boss's wife even sells some of hers in a local shop.

I would not want a lion near me swimming but even less would I want a hippo!
