Tis the season for colds and nasty viruses, and our hospitals are overflowing with really sick folks this year. I have spent the entire week in bed fighting a nasty influenza virus and trying not to go crazy/crazier. You know it's bad when I don't have the energy to do any stitching!
"Slow Down. Get Cozy. Get Crafty."
I love it!
It has a really strong magnet which you need for a thick quilt like this one. I like to thread a few needles and put them on the needle minder and quilt away - no need to stop to rethread!
I also removed 4 bars of quilting where I had accidentally used the wrong thread colour back in June. I had put the quilt away for the summer and when I brought it out again this fall I realized I still couldn't live with those 4 beige lines - now they have been replaced with maroon thread. Much better.
I hope to be stitching along with you today, if only for a short period of time. Link up your photo, instagram or blog post below and share the project you are putting stitches into today.

Oh dear Kathy, I do hope you are feeling better soon. Not feeling well enough to stitch must be awful, you have my sympathy.
I’m sorry to hear you have been sick. No fun!!! We had our flu shots this past week and are hoping to avoid the flu this year. I’m glad you like the needle minder. I thought it was appropriate for the leader of the slow Sunday stitchers! Feel better soon.
I am sorry you are feeling a little worse for wear, Kathy. I hope you are up and stitching up a storm very soon. The little needle minder is a great idea. Yes, I think the maroon quilting thread is a better idea, too.
Take care Kathy, sending positive thoughts your way. Get well soon.
Sorry no stitching by me today but I did get our groups 11 page newsletter completed and emailed out.
I am so sorry you have been sick with the flu. It can really wipe you out. I am glad you are working on the UFO. I hope you can get back to it soon. That is a great needleminder. Feel better.
That is a lovely needle minder. Feel better soon, nothing worse than not feeling well enough to stitch.
Sorry you've been down with the flu. Hopefully you are feeling better today. Enjoy your slow stitching. It's definitely the right weather to be have a quilt over your lap.
I'm so sorry you've been sick all week. Hope you feel better as each day goes by. Maybe a little stitching is in your future!
Hope you are feeling better. That needle minder is cute. The maroon thread will look nicer, good decision.
I hope I do not get the flu this year I already had a short stomach virus last month - get well soon, sometimes it takes a couple days to really get over it - you will feel like stitching soon.
Sorry to hear you've been under the weather and hope you are feeling better soon. I rank the flu by stages as (least to worst) 'unexpected day off, too sick to craft, too sick to read, time to call the doc' LOL
Love your quilt.
Hope you are up and about soon and back to lots of stitching! Great needle minder. Take care
Feel better! Thank you for taking the time to do your blog so we can all link up!
I’m so sorry you’re sick! I hope you’ve turned the corner. Great idea about having several threaded needles at the ready. That red paisley fabric is gorgeous.
I'll add my get well wishes to all of the others. I've already gotten my flu shot and will get the next Covid booster on Tuesday. Looks like it will be another winter of staying away from people and crowds which I realize not everyone can do.
Hope you are feeling better. Not feeling up to stitching is a pretty bad case. Wishing you some healing thoughts for a healthy week.
Hope you are feeling better soon!
I'm so sorry you're sick. I hope you feel better soon.
I am sad to hear you are feeling under the weather. Hope you are better soon and back sewing and stitching again!There are some nasty colds/flu bugs out there.
I hope you feel better soon, Kathy. In the meantime, rest and dream of all of the fabulous projects that you will work on soon.
Get well soon Kathy! Sorry that you got the virus! Take care! Hugs
Oh, I hope you are feeling better! Love that needle minder! I hope you were able to get a few stitches in on Sunday!
