Touching Base

I HATE COLDS!!! I thought after that bad bug the other week I was on the mend. Nope. Not me. I just had to catch a cold with a terrible sore throat and a bad cough.
So I'm touching base here to let you all know I'm still alive, barely. I hope these cute kitty pictures suffice until I'm back on the mend and can bare doing anything but randomly search the internet for cute kitty pictures. Enjoy!

New Quilt-in-Progress

I've been busy designing a new quilt! This will be the very first quilt I will have thought up all by myself, drawn the patterns for, and stitched the embroideries too. So I have been a busy little bee stitching them up. I have done 8 out of 9 so far! Here's a little sample of some of the different blocks-

Bird Sitting

Now I am feeling better and am back on the mend, I thought I'd share what's been happening around here.
I've been bird-sitting the past two weeks for friends of ours. This is their female Eastern Rosella (and man can she whistle!!) and Pale-headed Rosella male.Such gorgeous happy birds, we as a country are so lucky to have them as natives! They go home on Sunday, I am going to miss them.
Then my Mom brought over a kookaburra she had found sitting by the side of the road.I kept him overnight, and took him to the vets the next day, where they ascertained he was probably hit by a car and just stunned. So we drove him back to near where he was found (the university grounds) and released him.He was so happy to be free again!!
In the meantime, while we were at the vets they asked if I could take a yellow ring-necked parrot someone had found wandering around and brought in, while they looked for it's owner. How could I say no?So we brought "Sunny" home and not a day later got the call that they'd found the owner. We gladly let the woman come over to pick up the bird, who's actual name is Sunshine!! Good guess huh?
Hopefully they're all the birds we'll have for a while now, but you never know around here...

Sorry I haven't blogged in so long, I caught an extremely bad strain of a bug. I have been so sick! The whole family has had it, but I was hit the worst. Mine started in the middle of the night. I threw up more than 10 times that day, diarrhea like you wouldn't believe! And it's taken me almost a week to start feeling normal again, like my stomach isn't going to fall out. Terrible headaches too, I woke up with the pain of one this morning at 5:30am! Not nice...
I even had to visit the Emergency ward with bucket in hand to get something for the nausea and dehydration. They gave me an IV drip and some drug to stop the pain, but I was there until the wee hours of the morning.
Don't catch it!!!
With things starting to look/feel kind of ok again, I should get back to blogging and crafting soon! I hope...
