Feeling better

Almost back to my normal level of just odd with much less leakage!!! I guess I just had to work my way back from the brink so here I am at Thursday and as in the title "feeling better"!!

Last night was a wash in the stitching department as I did very little and the little I did was working on exchange things I can't show just yet.

I did watch a really very good movie - "England, My England" - 1995 - starring Simon Callow as Charles II and Michael Ball as Henry Purcell. The movie was interesting in that it jumped from the preset back and forth into the 17th century. Using the framework of Purcell's life and his interaction at court the film builds on this to show some gorgeous costumes and play that glorious music - at 2 1/2 hours it was really worth seeing.

Thank you all for your input about Le Jardin - I think I am going to go with the Heritage linen as the piece will eventually be a present ( I am aiming at next Christmas) and although I like my fabric all blotchy and wacked I am not too sure how well it would go over as a gift.

Have I mentioned that it has been unseasonably warm here the past few days - in the low to mid 70's and bright a sunny - now whats up with that!! We are supposed to start to drop into a more normal rang over the weekend but like I always say "Believes it when you sees it!!"

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,


  1. Awww, Edgar. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling weel. So glad you're on the road to recovery though. I think you made a good pick with Heritage. Fog was my second choice. The weather here is amazing...but I miss the coolness of winter.

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better. That flu bug sure is nasty. I will trade you some of that warm weather for mine. It is -21C and the low tonight is -36C. Thank goodness I am headed back to AZ tomorrow

  3. I am happy to hear you are getting better..Its the pits when your sick.
    Yes, the temps are strange for this time of year but you will not hear me complain LOL I sure am loving the beautiful sunshine.
    Take Care

  4. Edgar, I've been reading your blog for a couple months now. You create beautiful pieces. Yes, I am a lurker. Glad you are feeling better. I wish you would send some of that warm weather to the midwest. It was -15 this morning with a wind chill of -25. That's cold!!!

  5. Good to read that you are feeling better by now. It's about time, lol. Enjoy the warm weather!

  6. Hope you're well enough soon to appreciate our great weather. I south of you in Sunnyvale and it's wonderful to see and feel the sun.

  7. Glad to see you are feeling better. I too would have picked the Heritage for about the same reason you did. You can send some of that 'ol sunny San Francisco weather my way, we had 10 below last night, just not fun for an old girl transplanted from Fremont to greater downtown Illinois.

  8. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take it easy, relax - I prescribe a few stitches in your favorite project - you don't want a relapse!
