A few items of note:

1. I am feeling much better! And wow, that totally sucked! Do not get this particular brand of flu, if you can help it. Blech! I am still unconvinced that it was H1N1 – my doctor told me that it sounded like it, based on my symptoms, but I didn’t get the blood work done or anything. Regardless, it wasn’t pretty. I lost about five pounds, and we’ll just leave it at that.

2. I completed my arm chair, and have now crossed Item 26 off the list! Behold:
before

Aaaaand after

Y’all, I am SUPER proud of this! And it’s even comfy! Hoorah!

3. I also made some headway with Item 13: meet other bloggers this weekend, when I attended Maggie Mason’s Cool-Whip fight! That’s right, I kicked off my effort to meet some of you beautiful people by meeting Maggie Mason, one of the Most Awesome Bloggers Of All Time. I had an amazing time, and I can’t wait to see her recap! It was one of the most hilarious moments of my life.

4. I should note, for the record, that I attended the above event alone, for reasons that were beyond my control. It reminded me that I am not exactly socially adept all the time. Also, I realized that I cannot say the name of my blog without feeling like a complete toolbox. I think this might be a problem.

5. Holy crap, people. Make this. It is divine.

6. I’ve been on a major sewing binge lately. I can’t get enough of beautiful fabrics! My bank account is telling me that I might have an issue here, so I’m taking a little breather, but I have several projects to show you! I’ll post pictures when I get a moment to gather everything together. The chair was a big part of the equation, for sure.

7. Happy Monday!

    That chair looks fantastic! Seriously impressive :)

    I had never heard of Maggie’s blog before- I think I’m going to like her’s, too.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better

    Wow! That chair looks great — I’m impressed! And also happy you’re feeling better! :)

    1. So glad you’re feeling better. I got a strand of influenza once back in 2000, that left me 10lbs lighter and almost killed me. I know how bad it can get.

    2. OMG I’m soooo proud of this and I didn’t even have anything to do with it. Wow! Beautiful!

    I must say, that I am TOTALLY impressed by this chair thingie that you have pulled out of your crafty-hat. I? COULD NEVER DO THIS. Serio.

    Congrats, you. And I’m terribly happy that you are feeling better.

    xoxo

    You went! (to the Cool-Whip fight, I mean) Hurray! Can’t wait to see the recap.

    And that chair looks awesome. Now show us the dress that Flickr told me you made!
