Back in December, I posted about having an ear infection/bronchitis/sinus infection all at the same time. Well, I have it again! And the same damn ear to boot! I woke up very dizzy and sensitive to sound, so I thought I should go to the doctor and get some good antibiotics. And next week I need to go see an Ear/Nose/Throat doctor to figure out just what is going on. So I’m off tonight again, but at least LOST is on and I can try to get some knitting done. (BTW – last week’s episode will air again before the new one, and feeling as bad as I do, a very sexy Sayid will certainly help me feel better. 🙂 Eye candy is always so much better when I feel like a steam roller ran over me.)
Yesterday, John brought me home flowers! They are so pretty, and the tulips still have the bulbs, so I can plant them this spring. I bought the pink ones a couple days ago, but I think they compliment each other well. And now I have an excuse to buy a new planter!
Today when I woke up from a nap, there was a box waiting for me! My Sock Pal had emailed me and told me that she was sending me a little something for my birthday. What a great surprise!
There is a really cute little tote with tons of pockets, some cool silk fabric, some very pretty fleece fabric, and some good looking chocolate! But wait …. look what happens when I empty all of the pockets!
MORE FABRIC! I love fat quarters!! You can make the cutest small projects, and I’m always looking for more for my fabric stash. There is some great thread, a lime green Sharpie, various pink buttons, and some sew on rose buds.
Thank you so very much Sock Pal! It couldn’t have come at a better time!!!!
And speaking of sewing, I finished a small project the other day for one of my swap pals. I made my first needle roll! Now, I made a small mistake and left the stitching on the outside, but I think it looks fine. You just can’t see that from these pictures.
There is a little lip at the top to hold needles in, and then two pockets at the bottom. I think my pal is going to love it. And I can’t wait to make more. Now that I’ve tackled bias tape, I’m ready to tackle anything. 🙂
