A Wasted Week

It's been one of those weeks  for me and I sure hope it's not a sign of what the rest of my year is gonna be like.

New Years Eve kicked off with me being under the weather with a cold, cough and fever. Within a day or two I thought it (virus/flu bug) was moving on but I was so wrong.
It decided to turn around and bite me again and it just knocked the energy right out of me. So needless to say it's been a LONG week of wasted days. Just too tired to do any more than I actually HAD to do.
Unfortunately the schooling, cleaning and cooking still had to be done but once that was over I hit the couch with my new needlepunch project...only to fall asleep each night while working on it.
However I did manage to get it all done.
This picture doesn't do much justice for it but it really is cute in person.

Today I feel like a little bit of energy is returning so I've been busy in the kitchen baking pineapple cake and homemade pizzas.
While the cake was baking I traced out another needle punch project. It's a good bit larger than the last one I did so it's a good thing that I picked an Easter theme because it may take me till Easter to finish it.
                                   It's a Painted Quilt Pattern from Kaaren.

I'm also gonna start on a new BOM quilt that Jenny of Elefantz is sharing with us. I've got the colors in my head that I plan on using for this one. I've just got to get to the fabric store to pick them much fun!
You can join in on the BOM quilt too, just click on the Promises and Borders tag on my right sidebar.

Well that's all that's been going on for my first week of this new year.
This weekend promises cake and ice cream as Sunday is Gage's 12th birthday. Maybe I'll have some party pics to share next week.
Have a great weekend!

So sorry you've been sick, but it's been the same for me.. Took it a week ago in my head, fever, chills runny nose.. Thought I was going to whip it on out , then last night I was up all night with a stomach virus.. Feel light as a feather and just as weak.. It seems when you get this stuff it never leaves.. Like you I hope it moves on pretty soon.. got lots to do... Hope you feel better soon..Susie
