On slow motion, but still some progress....

I've been on slow motion for the last week... First today (after 9 days), I'm feeling much better from the flu. Hurray! :) I haven't felt for doing much and I have not even been out of the house! Before I got sick, I finished some mug rugs....
 
Here's a set of two with a matching teapot mat. 
 
 
Another pair of mug rugs......
 
 
I haven't felt for any sewing, but in between several breaks (catnaps in the middle of the days) I have done some progress on the UFO's.
This is the 'Blogger's BOM'. I finished the top at the end of last year. I was not supposed to work on this one this month - see my previous post - but when I got the backing fabric in the mail early last week, I couldn't restrain! :) Here it is thread basted and ready to be quilted. Since there are different blocks, I have yet to decide on how to quilt it...
 
 
'Love is'..... Another UFO...  This is a twin size quilt... Couldn't decide on backing and I didn't want to purchase more fabric from the US right now... the quilt is almost 80 x 90 inches, which requires about 7 1/4 yards fabric... With the shipping it had cost me approx $100! Not that I am stingy - LOL - but I really want to use what I already have.... I remembered I had an 'old' flannel bed sheet, which fit perfect to the quilt! It is pin basted and ready to be thread basted. 
 
 
I've also thread basted the 'Rustic Retreat' wall quilt to my dear friend Johnny.
Ready to be quilted. :)
 
 
Before I got sick, we went to the Tamil festival 'Sittirai Cavadee' - if interested, you can see photos here.

Poor you! The flue really can wipe one out. But you still managed to make some progress on your UFOs. And I love your mug rugs. Gorgeous.

Jättesöte mug rugs. Og jeg synes du har värt riktig flittig, selv om du har värt syk. Selv har jeg ikke sydd et sting siden före jeg dro på tur. Nå har dögnvillheten lagt seg, og jeg har ryddet og plantet ut i hagen.
Snart er det symaskinens tur.. :-).
Ha en fin uke.

Great to hear you are feeling better and wanting to sew. The blue mug rugs are lovely and it is good to see progress on your UFOs.

Sorry you have been so sick!

Glad you felt well enough to give us some peeks of your lovely projects. Those mug rugs are too cute!
