Well kinda ... this Monday I'm willing myself back into my groove as I fight a very achy body and try to convince myself I don't feel that bad.Thankfully I was able to go on a movie/dinner date with my sweets Friday {we saw The Adjustment Bureau ... it was ... interesting} and then get a lot of sewing/to-do's done Saturday.Because Sunday it hit me hard.So here's a look at what's on my sewing desk ...
