Thank you to everyone sending me well wishes, I'm still struggling to shake this flu and feeling rather flat and tired.
I have however dragged the sewing machine to the kitchen table for the school holidays to potter away on projects while the boys are home and playing. Its pretty fun, they come up and check out what I'm doing, remove pins and so forth for me before wondering away to resume their games. And I get to sit and pretend Im being productive. Excuse my round puffy face, my sinuses are blocked. But in the aim of keeping it real - here is me, no make up on a home day. The way these school holidays are shaping up there may well be a lot of those.
I finished Henry's raggedy quilt for his birthday which I'm really pleased with, so cuddly. I had just the right amount of woolen blanket as the wadding which was perfect. In fact I had just the right amount of everything, which is always a pleasant surprise.
I'm currently making a new Waldorf doll for him. His was one I bought to test the workmanship against mine and the tricott was a much poorer quality. He has a hole on his nose, so I decided it was time I make him one of my dolls, filled with my stitches and love. It has always bothered me I didn't, then I scolded myself for being silly as someone else made it lovingly, but now I feel warm and fuzzy that I'm making a special doll just for him. Does that paragraph make sense? It does to me, but that's not always saying a lot!
Grant on the other hand thinks I'm completely nuts on my theory's about dolls and Henry knowing I didn't make it for him so he doesn't love it as much as the other boys love theirs. But he is a good natured fellow and just lets me go, with only the occasional quizzically raised eyebrow.
Bits and bobs are still happening around the cottage, The power has been up graded and a new box put out side. We just installed a split system this morning which will be awesome. We can finally package up the one in the window and pop it away for the extension. I will get double the amount of light into the lounge and be able to open the window and let a breeze in again, Im SO excited especially with this flu, fresh air is best.
Well, Im going to try and have a nap to find some energy to start an assignment.
