At least that is what it sounds like when I say it. It hit me out of the blue on Sunday and yesterday ( I hope ) it reached its peak. I dutifully swallowed my day and night nurse capsules, for all the good it did, and am repeating the exercise today futile though it might be. I do not feel quite so stuffed up and have not sneezed for at least an hour. That is not bad considering that I have been ricocheting around the house since Monday afternoon.
Today I sat and hand stitched the binding onto a pair of baby quilts, I took care not to sneeze anywhere near them, these are 27" by 32" so it was not tedious. They have used up a stack of charms that I had cut from the scrap bin and some small fabric pieces from the stash cupboard.
I bought this Michael Miller print ages ago and had only used half of it, I thought that is was perfect to back the girlie quilt, I think that the back is as pretty as the front.
This backing fabric was bought when I was in Cardiff buying the 8200 QC, they had a sale on and it was very cheap. I have quite a bit left for another day.
I have sold the first thing from my £5 challenge and when I ( if I ) get up to £30 I will try and sell these, the materials cost £15 for each quilt. I am hoping to have inspiration strike this evening for my next make, I have £10 to spend on materials. Any suggestions/requests.
I am going to get some hooky going tonight, my knitting is a complicated pattern and my brain is not up to it. Some soothing rows of chain and half trebles are called for. After all I will be watching Bones and Elementary so I will only have half an eye on my hands.
Dinner tonight will be a very lazy sausages in onion gravy with as many veg as I can stuff into the steamer. Last night was a chick pea and squash curry and, although I ate a bowl full, it might have been chewed up and reformed cardboard for all I could taste.
The old saying is "feed a cold", Granny I hear you loud and clear.
I am just going to keep schtum about the little matter of my high temperature, there will be no starving a fever here.
On that note it has to be time for tea, no matter what it doesn't taste like.
