Yesterday we walked to the Stoffenmarkt. We have never seen so much fabric (stof) in our lives. This market comes here twice a year, and we just happened to be here for the Spring event.
Since I have no sewing machine here and the Beltway still needs some work, I will not be sewing much here for a while. So we had a quick look at fabric, but did not buy any. Prices were not too bad, but we do not even know what we need in this apartment.
I did find a good deal on large spools of polyester thread and a special stand to feed it into my machines at home. So walking to the market was not a waste of time.
Then it happened. On the way back to the apartment, I could almost not put one foot in front of the other. By the time we entered the apartment, I was freezing. And I didn't get much better after putting on two sweaters, a warm housecoat, and fuzzy slippers.
This morning I slept until 9:30 am and then went back to bed around 10 and slept until 1:00 pm. My hub made me a pot of tea, and I found some melba toast on the kitchen counter. After calling off a coffee date with our dear neighbors, I will just sit here and trust that this is a 24 hour flu.
I still have things to see and do the next week before we travel back home.
