Today i am going to put my feet up and do some quilting to try and finish my little boys quilt that i started shortly after he was born 19 months ago.
I need some quilting therapy after having spent christmas day nursing the sick in our house as half the family seem to have got a sickness bug from somewhere.
The cobwebs and the dust will still be there tomorrow.
My husband must be on the mend because he's demanding cups of tea every half hour or so,i should have known it couldn't last!
