I've got a cold

OMG I feel lousy. Headache, sore sinuses and such an irritated nose that I think I've sneezed more in the past couple of days than I have in the past 6 months. Although I am catching up on loads of trash movies on Sky. I've taken to lying on my mum's couch and watching her Sky whilst sneezing my way through the day.
I've got a swap package due on the 29th, so I'm having to plough on with some embroidery. Normally this would be no problem, but being ill really knocks the stuffing out of my crafting vibe.

I got a fab package the other day in the OWS 54. A DS Case and some fantastic chicken fabric.



See my DS fits fine.



Anyway back to my lemsip, sneezing, sisterhood of the traveling pants 2 and embroidery.

Bunny Olini

Finally the snow has all gone. Whoo Hoo!! I love snow, but only when I don't have to drive in it.
It's been a good year so far. I've generally got a warm room in the house and we've not had to buy any fuel for the fire yet. My great and wonderful friend moved into the same village as me :o) Yee ha..... She's going to get so fed up with seeing me.
When I'm not visiting my friend I've been doing some crafting and joining swaps. I even managed to fit a small cupboard into my sitting room (came from friends house) so that I can hide away some of my crafting stuff and not have it lying all around the sitting room. Which is the only warm room in the house.

Anyway some of my recent Craftiness.

Crochet Snowflakes



Knitted Irish Hiker Wrist warmers

For a WOW fan who embroiders - Hence the WOW embroidery bag made from an upcycled school sweatshirt.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Well that's all it seems to be doing atm.
Snow,more snow.....Proof.





So not used to it. This started before Christmas and it's still here. What's more it appears to be getting worse. I've no idea how to cope with it. I hate driving in the snow, all it does is stress me out. Arghh. Working from home this week to combat it. Fingers crossed for thaw this weekend. :o)

Still crafting in the evenings, so far this year I've finished a pair of slippers for my DD (crochet) and a pair of fabby fingerless gloves. Started them ages ago.

On the go.
