Maggie the Messmaker update


I finally started stitching a little. Here's an update on Maggie. I have officially finished the right half of the piece. The fabric's a little off square, as I noticed when I took my photo. I really hope that's not a problem when I go to frame it. I'll have to be extra careful when I put it in my Qsnaps from now on. You wouldn't think aida would be a problem.

So we survived that nasty virus and are more or less back on our feet. I still have a bad cough, as does Logan. I lost about 10 pounds while I was sick and am fighting to keep it off. Weight like that just seems to come back so easy. But now I do understand why Logan didn't want to eat anything for so long. The virus gave us pustules inside the throat that were very painful and it took away the appetite completely. I had trouble even swallowing, and it felt like my throat was going to close up completely. The joys of having a kid in daycare...they catch everything and bring it home.
