Flu Bug Bites and A Winner....

It was a cold, dark night when THE bug hit, Saturday night to be exact. It's first attack was to my DH but he put up a good fight and won. Other than a few battle wounds, a headache and earache, he survived the massive frontal attack.

I didn't. I was attacked by THE bug head-on. It came fast, like a swarm on locusts on a hot summer night attacking me from all sides. Those nasty bugs hit me hard leaving their germs of mass destruction in their path... cold, fever, headache and assorted body aches. It's here for a while, I believe, but with plenty or rest and fluids I will fight off this army of germs. I will be a good patient and not whine - well not too much ... I AM sick you know!

Now on to a brighter subject...that being the WINNER of my "Civil War Sewing Circle" book give-a-way. The winner is...drum roll inserted here...

Please stay healthy, don't let THE bug get YOU!

I am very sorry to hear that you got the attack from the flu. My husband got hit over the weekend as well, but he is on the mend. So far, I'm okay and hoping it doesn't attack me.

Wishing you a very speedy recovery!

Congratulations to the winner of that wonderful book!!

Elaine, I hope you & your DH are feeling much better. I enjoy your blog so much, maybe it's because we use some of the same tools. I do enjoy my collection of TJ's sewing tools & my Dovo scissors. Do you have a pair of the scissors Karen K. Buckley sells with the serreated edges? They are great to hold the fabric while cutting. Jeane
