My husband and I have been sick for the past 2 weeks. Nothing serious but it’s been really, really annoying. I was actually feeling better at the end of last week and made it to my needle-felting class (more on that in another post, once I finish up my project!) but then this weekend, maybe because of the heavy rain Saturday or the running around trying to run errands or the tiny glass of port wine I had (tiny it really was), I’m back to feeling crappy (hence the scarce posting). Now the plumbers are here for an ALL DAY project which includes, but is not limited to, hammering, drilling and singing. (Yes, singing!) So I guess I won’t be able to crawl back into bed any time soon.
I managed to drag myself off the sofa long enough to do a wee bit of decorating, including wrapping some fairy lights around my antique dress form, above, in the breakfast nook. (I know, FANCY.) We have candles everywhere, burning in mercury glass holders when the sun goes down, more fairy lights and red & white candy-striped towels in the kitchen. Somewhat minimal but really nice all the same.
And I even did some knitting!
I have 2 stockings to finish before Christmas and I’m making good time, even though I’ve waited until the last minute. (Which is the only way it’s going to work around here; I can’t knit Christmas stockings when it’s 80 degrees outside. It just doesn’t feel right.)
My goodness, drilling into ceramic tile certainly is loud. I think that’s my que. I hope you all are having a lovely week so far!
Update: Here’s the link to the Christmas stocking knitting pattern that I’m using: Personalized Christmas Stocking from 1945.
