Full of the cold

I woke up yesterday totally fine. We had an appointment at the bank, then i went to work. By lunchtime however, i was fully loaded with the cold. I felt terrible at work...sneezing/stuffed up nose etc and by last night it was even worse...sore throat/earache. I hardly slept last night. So needless to say i had to phone in sick today. I am so gutted to have a cold already...i had one in July as well.

The inlaws arrived on Monday (to a sparkling clean house after a weekend of intense cleaning/tidying time LOL) and everything's been fine. Thankfully they had already arranged to go out today to meet some friends so i am able to just be ill without the thought of entertaining guests!

I made this fob for Lizzy recently and i received an email the other day to say she received it. It's a "With my Needle" design from the 2006 JCS christmas ornament magazine. I finished it in a hurry so i wasn't entirely happy with it but Lizzy seems to like it so i am glad :)


This is what ive been working on recently whilst waiting for the next RR to arrive. It's "baby sampler" from Lizzie Kate and is for my friend who recently had a wee baby girl. The baby was premature so they are both still in hospital. I hope to have this finished for when they get out. I will either finish it as a flatfold or some kind of ornament you can hang. I haven't decided yet. It's such a cute design.So that's about it from me. I'm off to resume my position under the duvet on the sofa with a hot drink. Can you tell im feeling sorry for myself ; )
