Long Time, No Post!

Hello friends and readers. I'm still alive :-D. After my last post, Aaron came down with some strange illness. We thought it was West Nile, but thank God it wasn't. He was so sick with a fever and weird body aches. Then, it just went away. He's all better now.

As for me, I've been really busy at work in preperation for an event that we held at my store last Tuesday night. I spent the past two weeks painting, painting, and more painting. I loved it, but I don't care to see another paint brush for quite some time.

I have also been taking a little break on the sewing front. I love sewing, but sometimes, I just loose my umph. So, no sewing for a little while :-D I did, however, finish my Robe a la Turque, but my new Chemise a la Reine is on hold for the moment. I need to get my creative streak again to work on it. That's the beauty of a hobby, I can sew at my leisure and pleasure :-D I promise I will post pictures of the Robe after our ball this coming Saturday.

Well, m'dears, I will post pictures soon and hopefully have some more posts to come. God Bless!

Love Lauren

I'm glad you updated us, Lauren. I understand about losing your "oomph", lol. I'll look forward to seeing what you're up to when you get it back. ;-)

Oooh, I’m so glad that it wasn’t West Nile. I helped take care of a person (he was actually a doctor) that had it. It is amazing what that disease does—to your body AND to your mind.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Aaron's recent illness. We just got over a 3 week lingering illness that was odd to get this time of year. We were afraid it was the Swine Flu.

I too understand about loosing your umph for sewing. I am at that point right now. ..sigh. It is nice to be able to take a break from it and come back to it with renewed energy later. One thing I've found is that forcing yourself to sew when you DON'T want to really makes you hate it! :)

Have a lovely week, dear Lauren!
