This weekend I drank tea

 Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I mentioned I had bought several colors of Perfect Quilter thread?
Isdihara mentioned that she had some King Tut quilting thread and wondered if I would be interested in a thread exchange.  I thought it was a great idea!
Just a couple of days later I got her King Tut thread in the mail, in time for the Labor Day weekend.  A three day weekend and seven new threads to try – wow!  Thank you, Isdihara!
Would you like to see everything I got done?
This is a little piece I made with the “Baja” Perfect Quilter thread, just to see how it worked up.  It was easy to work with and amazingly I didn’t have trouble with it tangling or knotting.  It tatted great!
And then…..
Yes, that was it.
I had a lot of time to tat this weekend but instead I sat around feeling miserable!  I had body aches, sore throat, and a terrible stuffy head. I had no motivation to do anything but sit around and drink hot green tea with honey.  Two days of a nasty cold.
I had such plans for the weekend – several tatting projects, some cleaning (I know, but sometimes it has to be done!) and maybe have dinner with our neighbors.  But none of that came to pass.  In fact, I haven’t been able to try out any more of the threads yet!

It is September and the sunflowers are in full bloom.  These sunflowers – between seven and eight foot tall – are in my backyard. For all that they can be a pain when they are done blooming I love to see them every year.

They are so bright and, well, sunny!  

They didn’t raise my spirits this weekend but now that I’m feeling a bit better they are.

  1. Your little motif is so pretty and the colors fabulous!! 🙂 Sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well!! Sure hope this week brings much better health(I was feeling like that all last week). Have a great day!! 🙂

  2. You poor thing! Not feeling well puts a damper on your whole day(s).

    Your sunflowers are glorious! They always remind me of the movie "Calendar Girl" and the quote: (It's a long one, sorry.)

    "The flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire. Every stage of their growth has its own beauty, but the last phase is always the most glorious. Then very quickly they all go to seed."

    Here's hoping you are back to your glorious, healthy self in no time!
