I am sick. Moo. I don't want to be sick.

I also don't want to sit around and do nothing (despite the fact that nothing is really what I have energy for) so I'm making ruffles. Last night I cut out over 800 inches worth of bias strips for the Poe skirt. The skirt will have a total of 6 rows of ruffles, each row needs to be about 313" long. So I still have a way to go but enough of laying out slippery fabric, tonight I am ruffl-ing. At least it's a brainless exercise.

In happy news:
1. We had a wood fire going all day so the house smells lovely (it's freezing out!)
2. Mom made the best turkey & rice soup ever for dinner
3. I bought Edgar Allen Poe-stage stamps today while I was at the post office.

I couldn't resist. :P

You totally do! They are actually really pretty, the gold writting is really shiney like it was written with a gold pen. Nice!

Sick again? You poor thing. Can I suggest taking Vitamin B complex every other day, to give you resistance to catching things from people? It's worked pretty good for me for the last 5 years.

Well it's tradition that I'm sick while working on my Poe costumes I guess. Thanks! :P

Your icon is purty! And I think I might need to go get me new stamps now... those are pretty!

Thanks! I saw the portrait the other day and totally fell in love. I'm becoming obsessed with large feathers.

I blame The Duchess. :P

Awesome stamps! There's a certain irony in an image of EAP cheering anyone up, but it would make me feel better too. Hope you shake off the illness soon, and a belated Happy New Year!
