Best Laid Plans ~

Move over Iggy ~
Mom's not feeling well......

I have the stomach bug.
it started yesterday and continues today...

Peter & I have been planning an overnight visit to be with Hannah this weekend, 
...and now we just can't go.
I don't feel good and I'm crying.
one word sums it up:

The Shop will not be open this weekend,
as I will be curled up on the couch
and more likely up and down the stairs to the 'powder' room in between.

so move it over Ig....
make some room for me ~

even though I'm not feeling 100%
I can't just 'sit there'...
...so between naps & visits upstairs,
I stitched up a little something for the clothespins that Peter made me:

once finished, 
this will be stitched onto a pouch and used to hold my clothespins ~

hoping you're all feeling ok ~
& Happy November to you!

* Blessed be *

So sorry! hope you are feeling better in no time and can reschedule your visit to Hannah.
Also hope that you will think about kitting/charting your clothespin bag with a few of Peter's clothespins - how cool would that be! Perfect for a gift... and for me ;)
Blessings, Patti

Bummer Lori. That's not fun...except for Iggy. He's probably very content with you sharing his space all day.
Love your clothespin design.
Feel better soon!

Hope you feel better soon!! Love the stitching. I am a sucker for cute cat pics!!

Sandra said...

I am soooo sorry Lori. I have had that stuff twice since Avery was born. Both times I caught it from him. It is horrible. Thinking about you. Your clothes pen bag certainly looks a lot better than the one my grandmother had. She would have certainly loved yours.
