logging in sick


My husband gives me a hard time about lots of things, but one of his favorite things to tease me about is that my blog is my full time unpaid job. (He's not far off.) With that being said, I'm logging in sick for the week. I've got a cold and I'm going to take the rest of the week off of blogging.

For those of you who asked about where I got the fabric in the previous post, I'll check with my supplier (hee hee) and if it's ok with her, I'll share her info by updating that blog post.

You DO deserve some(a very little,please!) time off. I want you to get all better and knock our socks off with some great quilts when you come back.
Have a good nap!

Get well soon! Resting is good, I just took few days off too. So go ahead, jump in bed and all of us will be blogging for you so you have stuff to read. :)
Take care...

CT said...

take care! rest a lot and I hope you feel better already!... mmm... how does one send virtual chicken soup?

G'G'ma said...

Crawl under one of your beautiful quilts, read awhile and when you get sleepy just take a little nap. Oops, almost forgot about the little ones. Do you have any help?

Get well soon. We'll "see" you next Monday.

HobbyMommy said...

Take good care!

Andrea said...

Okay, am I the only one to post a selfish comment to you???

I love reading and learning and getting inspired from your blog!

Oh. I guess I could quilt! Yay!

I hope you're better soon...rest up!

lera said...

Feel better, friend!

Shelley said...

Hope you feel better soon! Have a big bowl of chicken soup and curl up on the couch with a cozy quilt and rest.

Roxanne said...

Enjoy your sick time and get well soon! I keep coming here and having to catch up on posts - which definitely means you are working too hard. But I am very jealous of your fabric score. The elusive turqoise Denyse Schmidt leaves...lucky girl!!

Take care of yourself!

John said...

I just noticed you said "supplier" ... wouldn't "pusher" or "dealer" be a better word?? : )

amandasasikirana said...

get better soon, amanda jean. and definitely post about that fabric supplier of yours.

melissa s. said...

Hannah said...

Hope you feel better soon! There are some nasty colds going around already.

Sherry said...

Hope you feel better soon, we have chest colds, coughs in our house too! Take care.

Karen said...

Everyone needs some down time now and again. Hope you're feeling better very soon;)

sulu-design said...

Looks like we're both bowing out for a while... perfect timing! I only wish that you weren't taking a break because you're sick. Feel better soon, and get plenty of rest (I'm sure you need it, no?).

Tine said...

Feel better soon! Take a nice long rest (well as much as you can with the little ones), and we'll all be here when you come back :-)

nicolette said...

I wish you lots of hot tea or coffee, chocolate, good books and magazines and well being taking care off... and a good baby-sitter of course!)
I hope that will make you feel better soon!

Мария Доричева said...

Please get well. I think you have so much talent, your own style and you're very hardworking, so some day you may start your own business using your skills.

Kieny The Dutchlady said...

Hope you feel better soon!

Nanci said...

Being one of the most popular blog sites is a chore. You have no idea how many people want you to get better quickly in order for you to be back here and educating the masses as you do with your blog.
What will we do for the rest of the week?

Amy Jo said...

Hope you feel better soon!!!

Grandma Ciffer said...

May you soon feel better! I know exactly who you got that lovely fabric from! I was totally addicted to her shop. I loved to cozy up on Tuesday nights with her knitting group. I have NEVER found another shop that has come close to hers. It was such a home for those of us in Mid-Michigan that loved to sew and knit. When the going out of business sale was on she mentioned that she was going to ban me from purchases soon for fear that my husband would find out just how much fabric I was stashing!

Elizabeth said...

feel better, crazy mom!

Melanie said...

you deserve a health break, creative minds need to rest and rejuvenate! take care

kattmd said...

oh feel better Amandajean!
I've been sick since last Tuesday. Hoping today I'll finally kick this cold/flu. Take care :)

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, I hope you feel better soon! Hopefully it wasn't that fabric that gave you the cold teehee!

Anina said...

Feel better soon! Maybe this is your body trying to tell you to take a break.

Tif said...

Feel better soon!

Marcia said...

You most certainly deserve a rest. I hope you feel better soon.

Erin O. said...

I hope you feel better! This is my first time posting here, however, I am so loving your creativity. I'm a fellow quilter and love your creations.

p.s. Do you quilt other people's quilts? Or just your own. I'm always looking for people to do my quilts, but don't trust anyone(hence, why I'm not quilting my own; I'm not the best)

a friend to knit with said...

you must get better soon!
one week is about all we can give you right now. you are just full of too much inspiration to take anything more than one week!
feel better, you.

I just wanted to say how much I love your blog and all yoru quilts- absolutely gorgeous! And I hope you are feeling better soon! :)

Anonymous said...

Are you well yet?? I miss your posts and quilt-y projects!! Hope you are feeling better soon, Amie-Nashville

denice said...

i must say i am very impressed you have stayed gone the whole week. have you taken any peeks? all i can think is you must have a bet with your DH and fabric must be the prize!

btw - we are in the middle of making christmas presents right now. my daughter wanted to make a runner for her sister, but neither of us have ever done any machine quilting. so, i pulled up your tutorial and we watched it together a few times. then we went for it. pretty good i'd say for a couple of beginners. it is turning out beautifully! thanks for all the tips!

Valerie said...

I hope you get to feeling better soon. We sure miss you!

Brooke said...

Ummmm...hello...I love you!!! I just found your blog and it makes me so happy! If we are late to church this morning I will have to blame you...I keep saying "I'll just look at one more tutorial"...I must stop now!
I am a fairly new quilter and have taken a "simple" approach to my quilting. Your tutorials are perfect. Keep 'em coming! Hope you are feeling better.

Heidi said...

Your blog is amazing! However, I have to say as much as I LOVE your blog and admire all of the quilts you’ve made, I can’t help but think that this break is LONG over due! I’m also a mom to young children and I know how time consuming blogging can be. Enjoy your children & husband - we will all get by if those posts come a little less frequently! Hope you feel better!

Take care of yourself and feel better soon!
