Day 5

This is Harmony House - one of my favorite Christmas/Winter quilts for the couch,

We only have 2 kits left and we're giving one away today. Just post a comment - anything at all - OR -if you don't have a blog, email Tara at janpatekquilts@yahoo.com and tell her to enter you.

I spent part of yesterday morning changing my bed to my winter quilt (Baskets, Berries & Leaves) and my winter shams. It's a good thing, because I'm going to be spending the day in bed. I started throwing up last night and haven't really stopped. I have 2 wool blankets, 2 quilts and a sheet on the bed and I'm cold. I plan on sleeping most of the day if I can. Have fun and hope you win. (Pep said to have you give me flu remedies - my flu shot seems to have missed this one.)

  5. It would be such a bonus to win the Harmony House kit. I don't have any remedies but it seems that you are not alone in this. My husband along with others I know had their flu shot and then about a month later were down in bed for a week. I hope you aren't sick that long.

  16. The flu, ick--hopefully you will be over it well in time to get on with the holidays. At least you have the comfort of a bed that is snug and beautiful. Love the houses on your quilt that is the kit give away--but then I have always loved all your houses on quilts over the years. Wish I had some remedies that would ease your symptoms.

  18. Take of yourself as the flu is no fun. I read your blog everyday, and probably call Tara once a month to have her help me out. She is a HOOT. I delight in your blog and love the primitive look.

  33. We have had the same thing going through our church. Had the nativity and Cantata this past Sunday night. We lost 1 wise man, half the cherub choir and the narrator. So far our house is holding our own. We'll see! Hope you are better in time to have a wonderful Christmas! (and no one else in your family gets it)

  64. Jan:
    It seems that this time of year really stresses us out, and it's so easy to get sick when your resistance is low. I recommend a nice long massage, some hot cups of your favorite tea with honey, and a honey to rub your feet. It may not shorten the length of your cold, but it will make you feel better!
    Looking forward to more beautiful quilts from you in 2011!

  84. Oh what joy it would be to win a quilt kit from you!! Your quilts are such fun to make. Hope you feel better soon. I think it's a stomach virus rather than the viruses that the flu shot covers...any hoo that's what my nurse friend who administers the flu shot explained when I had a bout with the stomach ickies :0)
