We made it! (Linky party soon!)

Many thanks for all the good wishes . . . we made it through the storm! Wow, have you seen all the areas that have been so hard hit with all of this winter weather?

Just to go outside you have to clear a path! Lots of folks have been home from work; kids have been home from school . . . 

It's enough to give you cabin fever!
(Yeah, I'm crazy about the muppets; or just crazy!)

Hmmmm.....that's a great idea for a linky party!

And we love parties!

And we love to have some of our lucky followers win prizes!

That's a win-win situation if I ever saw one. (Grin)

Here at the Lilypad, this is what cabin fever looks like:

Using the Aurifil "Simply Color" thread case for a tent . . .

Seeing how many Aurifil thread spools can be stacked before they fall on a frog and a dragon . . .

Here is your assignment: put together a blog post or a Flickr upload that shows what you do when you get cabin fever! 

Maybe you quilt and quilt and quilt till your eyes cross.

Or perhaps you bake until everyone's tummy is full.

Or maybe you just relax and pat your kitty or pup . . . 

 "You're gonna stay home and play again today????"

Show us what you do when cabin fever hits! Of course, we understand that some of us don't want to reveal ourselves on the interwebs -- you can hire a super model to substitute for you, or just show the project (not you).
Get your post ready, and we'll start the linky party soon, and announce the super prizes, too!



  1. you are funny! this winter has dragged on a bit, hasn't it? we finally had a thaw today, but not before freezing rain turned my driveway into a skating rink. I am sure the neighbors were entertained if they saw me trying to take the trash out to the curb this morning. Cabin fever? sew, sew, sew.

  2. I think this is a fun idea - added it to my post so everyone can come up up with some 'cabin fever' tips.

  3. It was up to 82 today and several ladies spent the day helping a friend organize her sewing room. WOW! it was a disaster area! We are all going back next week to help her finish!

  4. this has been a rough winter for sure for allot of us-

  5. Jan from Sew and Sow farm sent me to visit you! So glad you made it through the storm. We're waiting for my brother-in-law and niece to get back from Michigan. I hate loved ones traveling during bad weather. I like being inside during snow storms. It's a perfect time for a movie marathon!

  6. I hope the threads dont hurt when they hit the dragon and the frog on the head. I like the idea of the tent, did you make s'mores?? Indoor camping in winter is the best! We are off camping properly soon, Dragondrop so I will send you a photo from our trip.
    Looking forward to seeing what others have created with cabin fever. Now the heat has reduced I am able to get out so I am recovering from cabin fever.
    Hugs to you all and I am glad you are safe.

  7. Great idea! But I never get cabin fever - it's just another day to hide in my studio!!

  8. Hi Snoodles Treacle has done her Wednesday Wag on cabin fever, not that she gets much as she is always tucked up in her bed!!!!! Hope you are all doing okay with all your snow. Susie x

  9. I need a few days of cabin fever here to catch up on things that need to be done.
