The Best Laid Plans...

Last weekend was to be my sewing marathon weekend, oh the plans I had.  I was to finish the top and skirt I'm working on then start another project; then I sneezed, sniffled and coughed.  I, who never get really sick was in bed the entire weekend....

Well, let's hope next weekend will bring better luck, the good news is that I lost three pounds.
