On Wednesday, I came down with something icky. Not sure if it's a flu or just a terrible cold, or what, but it has totally kicked my butt. I haven't gone to work, I skipped the scrapbook retreat I was supposed to go to this weekend, I've honestly barely gotten up off the couch. The one thing I have done is stitch. It is so relaxing to turn on a movie or tv show and just stitch. In fact, I find it interesting that this is actually how I started stitched at 9 years old. My mom hired this babysitter, Donna (who was a retiree), to watch me when I was home sick from school because neither my mom or dad had sick leave that they could use when a kid was sick. Donna used to bring her cross stitching with her and she would stitch while I watched tv. Once I asked her if she could teach me, and the next time she came over (I was sick a lot), she brought a simple kit for me to try. I picked it up quickly, and have been stitching ever since!
Well, after 4 days on the sofa, here is where I am with Celtic Summer!
