Call off the Search Party!!

I’m here – I’m alive. I’m sorry I’ve been absent, but I’ve been a little under the weather.


As I’m sure you all agree – there are different levels of “sick”.

There is “too sick to go to work”

“too sick to go to the quilt store”

And finally.. “too sick to sew”

Now, when someone is too sick to sew – hopefully they have sought medical attention.

Earlier this week I was actually too sick to sew. But by Friday night I was only too sick to go to the quilt store. (You still with me?) So I was sewing with the rest of you… and it felt good too.

And today, I feel really good – I don’t sound good – but I feel good.

Enough about me though.. wanna see what I worked on?

Remember this bench?
It was one of my 2010 to do items. When we cleaned out my in-laws house last summer, it was one of the items that we brought home.

Now it looks like this.



Ain't it purdy?!

And remember back in January when I said that I was going to try and do one unfinished item from 2010 per month this year? Well, this is my February finish from 2010. So far so good!

I love your bench. I love vintage furniture, and especially items where someone has made it their own.

Thanks for sharing.
