Itchy, fuzzy and luggy, still hanging on.

Morning all, a nice grey drizzly one at that, Ben does not mind at all, he still wants his walk.
The ears have stopped popping but the itchy and squelchy feeling has spread inwards and met in the middle, so I am still fuzzy and my balance is a bit off kilter. BUT I do feel much better and want to thank you all for your concern and comments.
There has been no crafting, I dare not trust myself with scissors and sharp pointy objects, I am hoping to do some easy sewing later today and I want to hunt for my knitting needles. They are in a roll somewhere, I may have to empty out the sofa storage and even under the grace frame. I want to gather some different textures for my scumble project.
On a good note Mary, one of my lovely neighbours, has given me what seems like acres of royal blue hessian fabric, even more lining fabric and a massive pair of curtains made from the same stuff.
I have unpicked the curtains and one of them is in the washing machine right now. I am certain that this will shrink alarmingly so I washed one and then will compare it to the other to find out exactly how much.
I will make her a couple of boxy bags, as requested, for her and maybe a little something from the "ready made" box will go into them.

I have also realised that I never got around to sharing the last of my Santa sack swap. I can not remember how far I got so will show the last 4. I know that I could look back and check but that seems too complicated for my fuzzy brain just now.



Gorgeous cards and a cute Owl key ring, the cards are in my bureau and the Owl is on my favourite bag as a charm.


Jigsaw fridge magnets, now holding my notes to me on the fridge.
A perpetual calendar, Francesca took one look at it and begged for it, so it now hangs on a wall in Beckenham. 

I am off now for some hot chocolate, my throat is a bit scratchy and I could not tackle tea or coffee. It is far too early for ice cream, plus I do not have any. I may have to make some later.

    1. I washed and tumbled one curtain and it did not shrink or lose colour. Bonus. I have to get my thinking cap on.

  2. Hi Pam
    I somehow missed your last post and therefore didn't know that you were ill. Glad that you are on the mend and to hear the you are going to have a go at a scrumble.
    It's a bit late now but 1 tspn manuka honey with a 1/4tspn cinnamon mixed in 3 times a day works wonders, I halted my cold last time with this, just worth a mention.
    Look forward to seein your scrumble.
    Hugs

    1. You would think that the bugs would have had the decency to drown.

  7. This bug you have seems to be lingering. Hopefully it will be completely gone soon. The honey and cinnamon mentioned in a previous comment is very good, I can attest to that. Hope you found your knitting needles.
