Fat Quarters

I really want to have a go at making a log cabin quilt after finding inspiration here and then discovering that there was a tutorial on the technique here. I just keep sitting and looking and patting these delicious little bundles of fabric because I have no energy to actually get on and make one, but I will, soon, but not until I have made J's cardigan.

Recovering from that horrid viral infection is slow, I get spurts of energy and think I am well again and then BOING!! it hits me and I have to sit/sleep/blog/read/hand knit/or do something else that is a quiet task. I got a bit frustrated today, I wanted to sew something but didn't have enough fabric to make it, the whole process just made me flake out on the sofa in a miserable fashion so Barry suggested I do some cooking as I had told him about these Lemon Shortbread Bars that I came across as I was blogging about. He's a clever man, it was just the tonic I needed but really it is an enormous recipe and if I make it again I will half the ingredients. Barry's not even at work as he's fighting this virus now , so he can't take any in for his workmates. I might see if it will freeze....

You were so sick that it probably will take nice to yourself. Mmmm, shortbread and tea is good for what ails you! My mother is coming in 2 weeks...she loves shortbread so we will try your recipe.

Those fabrics are so very pretty! and the lemon shortbread? YUM, I went and saved the page as I love shortbread AND lemon.

Hoping your energy level continues to increase, just make sure you take it easy and don't relapse.
