Of socks and quilts and feelin' poopy

I apologize for the posting delay, I meant to post yesterday, but I haven't been feeling well - that and Dave was monopolizing the computer as he attempted to outfly the Red Baron (yeah, it's a Snoopy game...)

Anyway while working a kabillion hours, and fighting a this nasty bug, I did manage to accomplish a few things - first the maroon socks!
Sorry for the craptacular photo - new camera coming soon. And I will get better pictures before I post the pattern. One Christmas present down!

I started the men's version last night, but the yarn I had for it isn't working out. It's not smooth enough to give nice pattern definition. Mom is kindly dying me some Alley Cat today, so I'll restart them later this week.

In the mean time, I started on a sewing project. You may remember a while back I picked up some wicked Pontiac GTO fabric for Dave's six-year-old cousin. The kids is OBSSESSED with GTOs and it was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I also picked up some white and black broadcloth. The end result will be a checkered flag quilt, with a GTO backing.
I cut all the squares out today and intended to at least sew the checkered flag - but then I got a really bad case of the sleepy/queasies and went to lay down for four hours.

I've had some chicken noodle soup, and I think the rest of the evening will be spent working on Dad's Christmas socks. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow morning. I have to much work to call in sick.

You've been eating too much chocolate, that's why you got sick :P There's a saying in German that God punishes instantly... Hope you feel better soon!

In the meantime, go snuggle a cat. That always helps.
