Sorry about the unexpected hiatus... I have been, once again, sick with the flu from hell and am only now feeling back to normal. Three days of feeling terrible, followed by a week of slowing waking up. I will be SO glad when this winter is over! I have never been so sick so many times... either Glenn or I have been sick since Thanksgiving and I am soooo over it. Blech.

'Nuff said about that.

I have no new pictures to show of any stitching. I haven't even touched it all week. I have a terrible time being creative when I'm sick... my mind kinda shuts down and it's all I can do to keep up with normal things. I am missing it now though, so am determined to get back in the groove. I hope to have some progress to show you soon.

I was feeling good enough this past weekend to do some furniture shopping, though. There is a store here call Furniture Affair that stocks all the model home furniture that the builders don't need anymore. They have a very eclectic mix of furnishings so it has taken awhile to find the sofa set we wanted. After six weeks of haunting them waiting for the perfect set, it finally appeared! I stopped by on a whim on Friday on the way home and found my sofa set... this one in a dark brown fabric.

I needed to make sure Glenn liked it, too so we were there as soon as the doors opened on Saturday morning. We bought the sofa and chair set, as well as a rug to go with them. They delivered it on Saturday night and we had some fun fixing everything up. It's made by Rowe Furniture and is very comfortable. It's been awhile since we had new furniture and it looks so nice! It's like we are grown-up or something!! ;0)

Hokay, that's all I got today. Blogging will improve from here on out... I'm determined to get back in the swing of things!

Have a good week and see you in a couple of days!

Glad to have you back Marty. It sure has been a long winter for sickness but let's hope that you are finally on the mend and will be fighting fit for spring.
Love that new sofa set of yours-looks comfy enough for long evenings stitching up a storm.

Marty, I am giving you a big jump up and down-y, hand clap-y hug for your new sofa. We have just bought one too, my first "new" sofa and I am so excited. I have to wait 12 weeks though for mine to come from Malaysia though....
I hope you feel better soon.

What a great place to shop for furniture! I have not heard of one of those in Phoenix, but I'll bet there is one somewhere. Congratulations on finding just what you wanted!

Gee Marty, you sure have had more than your share of bugs lately!

I wish we had a repository for model home furniture around here. It would have saved us a ton when we moved. Did you find that a lot of it was "small?" The model homes I've looked at, it seems as if the furnishings are scaled down to make the rooms look larger.
