I woke up last Sunday morning (Mother's Day) sick... cough, sore throat and felt terrible. I usually get over colds quickly, but this one just wouldn't go away. Thinking I had something serious like Strep or Bronchitis, I went to the doctor Wednesday, but it turned out to be.... ALLERGIES! I finally started to feel a little better Friday, and Saturday I had enough energy to attend Idea Saturday at Sunflower Quilts with Mom and Megan and make a quick trip to IKEA. But I got almost no sewing done this week. I still have 5 items to complete for the Spring/Summer Wardrobe Challenge at TheFabricObsession - deadline is June 1st - wonder if I'll get them all done in time!
I did have a nice surprise Monday - I was one of the Pay It Forward winners at Crystal's Blog. I can't wait to see what she surprises us with! And to keep the good vibes going, I'll be hosting my own Pay It Forward giveaway soon.
And speaking of giveaways - SewMamaSew is organizing a Blog Giveaway for later this month. On May 27th SewMamaSew will have a list of all the participating blogs. The giveaways will be open until the 31st, so stop by and take a look at all the talented participants. And check back here - I'm thinking of participating, and will have a post up next weekend if I do.
