A Cold

Image
I've been laid up with a bad cold since last Friday, not just a few sniffles but an absolute stinker that has knocked me for six! I am not usually a person to stay in bed but I am back there again today after a rough night with hardly any sleep.  I overdid it yesterday and knocked myself back, OH was out working so I was up cleaning and cooking.  At least I made dinners to last a couple of days, not that I can taste much at the mo.
Alex and Bonnie have cuddled on the bed with me keeping me company.  Every now and then Bonnie raises her head and miaows at me like shes checking if I am ok, bless her. 
I have been doing something whilst laid up though Crocheting baubles for my next craft fair which is on at the weekend.  I need to shake the worst of this cold off before then, got too much I want to do so I am going to keep dosing with cold relief tablets, drinking honey and lemon and relax a while.

My Late November Roundup

Image
I am a little late with a roundup of November but there wasn't a lot to report on my month really.  I spent a couple of weeks waiting on edge for medical results and after receiving good news, I promply went down with a bad cold virus from which I am still recovering. The weather took a turn heading quite wintery with temperatures dropping low, leaving cold frosty mornings.
I was given a bag of bits and pieces for crafting use and inside was a large piece of material which was just perfect for me to make a front door curtain.  What a difference it has made to the hallway The first Christmas craft fair took place in the village.
and the reindeer came too. Some great photos of them were taken and these two below were favourites of mine but not captured by me personally.
A little bit of shopping took place to cheer me up (my excuse!) I brought this lovely cushion which looks like painted material and has a lovely grey suede backing.  It was a bargain at £8 from Matalans. and homemade soups…

November Catchup

Hello again, I have been absent for a few weeks because I had a medical worry to deal with and I went into hibernation for a while although I kept myself busy to try and take my mind off it.
The reindeers were in the village yesterday, a friend of mine took the above photo as I was indoors manning our stall at the craft fair.  We have had such cold frosty weather that it lent to the atmosphere and getting home about 4.30pm was like skating on an ice rink!
I shared the table with my friend who knits lots of toys

She sold all her little teddies except one.
Both together our table looked very full and colourful.
I've been making my Holly and Ivy cushions again and enjoyed crocheting some Christmas baubles.
Theres me hiding behind the stall knitting away.
I did an experiment and made an angel from an old book 
I will tweek it a bit but will make a few more for the next craft fair in two weeks time as last year our book Christmas trees sold really well. Leaving you today with this amazing photo…
