Oh wow, it has been a while. These last few weeks have been
Between man flu laying the husband low, then me, then my 3 year old having to undergo a baby tooth "root canal" (please, can we not debate whether or not baby teeth have roots?), then me falling prey to what the doc has called a repeated viral attack (sounds gnarly right? IT WAS!), Casa Sew Jillian has been a pretty miserable old place.
But hooray we appear to be out the other end!
And this weekend was pretty special. P and I enjoyed our first night away alone in nearly 4 years! That's insane! The 4 years bit I mean.
And said weekend involved copious amounts of wonderful elixir of the Gods, Hunter Valley style. Oh Hunter Valley, how I've missed you, it has been a while.
We didn't know ourselves! What to do, where to start? Do I take a bath, knit for hours, visit every winery possible, watch TV uninterrupted, swing from the chandeliers (too much info?)... or gasp... sleep in? Oh the joy.
We might love our little M to bits, but good lord it was nice to have just over 24 hours to focus solely on the wonderful man I married. I kind of forgot what it's like to have an uninterrupted conversation and to snuggle without a wiggly near four year old wanting to get into the middle of the action. Bliss.
And I do have a WIP - that there up top is my current sweater progress.
I also have a little leatherwork of my own awaiting finishing touches. It's a bit laughable to call it a true project but I'll share anyway. Stay posted.
And I am just about to start on Victory Pattern's Roxanne. Not the summer version I had originally planned 'cause let's face it, Autumn is truly here. No it'll be a cool weather appropriate Version 1 in an awesome chiffon I picked up recently.
So lovely people, as long as the fates stay on my side and off the side of sickness, I'll see again you soon!
