So last week was ridiculously busy. We had 2 nights out and a super amount of work to get done. To top it all off I have relapsed with my super bug and am as sick as a parrot.
As an aside: Who came up with the phrase ‘sick as a parrot’ and what was the parrot sick with to be labelled as such? Are we to feel sorry for said parrot? Is it contagious? Should we be seeking medical help for the wee fella?
Anyway, although I spent the entire weekend on the couch with my friend the super bug that is trying, and succeeding, to kick my butt again my progress was very slow on Warm My Heart. I had high hopes that I would have a page finish but due to nap requirements and concentration issues this was not meant to be. All progress is good progress though right? 🙂
1: Start Point 2: Stitching Buddy 3: Finish Point
The was no knitting for the week and no progress on the Christmas gifts front although I have come up with a bit of an idea for Veronica.
I spent a bit of time in the kitchen this week before I was struck down with the whatever plague this is. My dad bought me a new book and I bought me a new salad bowl. Also have taken to lighting candles everywhere at home. Candles also make things feel so nice and cosy.
This weeks goals are to finish the page on Warm My Heart and get started on Kayla’s elephant. I also want to get 2 squares finished for my patchwork knitted blanket. If I get a chance I need to scoot into Spotlight for some rings, feathers and gems and also Bunnings for string for Dreamcatchers. I don’t know if I will get that far but I have high hopes for the page finish.
Till next week, happy crafting everyone xxx
