In which I try to distract myself from sickness

I'm home quite sick today, but as the medicine hasn't kicked in yet and I can't sleep for the coughing, I thought I'd make a quick post. I'll mostly let the pictures do the talking today.

Nov. 1 was my friend Anne's wedding. It was a total blast.

Aren't they adorable? It was an autumn-themed wedding with different rich shades of brown as the main colors. The (cheese)cake was stupendous:

I was a posing fool. I posed with Rachel:

I posed with Veronica:

And I posed with the bride herself:

I wore the Maui shrug that I crocheted (mostly) during the Olympics. I liked it. It made my little black dress more festive. You can kind of get a sense of it, but the photos that really featured it didn't come out. I'll have to just play dress up one day and have a photo shoot. Someday.

The wedding was awesome and I had a great time. Congrats Anne and Andy!!

Then Tuesday night, while I watched election returns, I finished all the blocks for my Inga's Haekelbeutel:

Yesterday I pieced them, but I'll save photos of that for later. Can't blow all my news at once -- you never know when I'll have news again!

Okay, I think maybe I can try sleeping now. ::cough, cough:: Well, maybe not.

Hope you are able to get some rest. Also, I'm sorry that the shrug pictures didn't turn out that well. They looked okay when I looked at them on the little screen in that dimly lit room. ;o) I'm happy to re-take them sometime.

So sorry to hear you are sick. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Take care of yourself, though it sounds like you are. I hope you're feeling a lot better very soon! Your shrug looks really nice!

I can't believe that huge cheesecake! I think I gained five pounds just looking at your photo of it...
