Flu and gifts

I'm on my sixth day of battling the flu from hell. Will you do me a favour, blog friends? Remind me to get the flu shot next year. No procrastinating. No excuses. I must never get a flu like this again. Thanks.

Way too long ago, I got this lovely "petit oiseau" in the mail from Claudia. I kept meaning to blog about it, but I got really busy with work and then pummeled by this flu . . .

Claudia really like the snowgirl with camera ATC that I did for Project Spectrum, so I told her I'd make a special one for her. She said she'd send me something sweet in exchange. I was really happy to receive this bird because I had secretly been coveting it (as seen in her Flickr profile pic). Thanks again!

Sherrie is selling some beautiful shaving kits in her shop. I bought one from her for Jesse (no special occasion, just an "I love you" gift).

When he was opening it up, he first saw the mug and said, "I don't drink coffee!" Then he saw the soap and said, "I don't care about soap!" Then he saw the brush and said, "Oh! Cool!" His old shaving mug has a cartoon pig on it and the brush is ragged. It was definitely time for an upgrade. Thanks Sherrie!

And speaking of Sherrie, she just had a birthday. I am giving her the Birdie mitts, but I had to wrap them up unfinished. The second mitt still looks like this. I haven't worked on it at all this week because my fingers still ache from the flu.
