Feeling a little better.

Thank you for your get well wishes, I think they are working, as today I do feel a little better. I'm still off work though. When I first got up this morning I thought that maybe I could have gone to work today, but now my temperature is creeping up again, so the decision to stay home was the correct one. But....My fingers are itching, and I have the urge to stitch.
On Friday last week I cut the white background for the next round of the fan quilt, long thin panels this time, I also appliqued on some stems and leaves, LOL some of the leaves do look a bit like holly, please pretend you can't see that! I also made up some fan flowers and have them all pinned in place. I may see if I can get these stitched on today.
These are just two of them.
There are eight flowers in all, two per side.
I plan to add butterflies to the corner stones, I've been trying to figure out how to adapt the Dresden/fan design to make butterflies, I think I've got it sorted now, but I'll want to play about a bit before I go for real.

Gratitude's
1) Get well wishes.
2) Soft cotton handkerchiefs.
3) My Hunney.

Hope you are on the mend soon...I know there is lots of nasty bugs around at the moment. Your appliqué looks good...can't wait to see how your butterflies turn out.

Hope you are well soon we have all had colds over the last 2 weeks, One of the local schools near by had half the children not in, we have been lucky,

Relax and Enjoy your stitching
