I’m feeling grim – I’ve had some sort of stomach bug since the weekend, and finally succumbed to a day off today (I hate taking time off work). I’ve pottered, and not really done much, although I did get to Waitrose to pick up some milk (I may not feel much like eating, but the rest of the family still does… ) – and that was a happy trip as I met David from church who had a big bag of knitting needles, crochet hooks, some Sirdar Countrystyle yarn and an embroidery frame in his car for me – it was less happy when I nearly passed out walking across the carpark
So I spent the afternoon seaming George/Esther (renamed Froggit – I’ve completely given up on the hood – my one and only attempt wasn’t fun to make, and looked rubbish, so it got frogged). I’ve discovered that I like seaming. I’ve only just discovered doing it “properly” using mattress stitch, and I love the way the stitching just disappears. Now – who can find a fun way to weave in the ends?
Then I went and picked the boys up – Adam is a very very tired and stroppy boy this evening. It’s really hard to be patient with him when he’s rolling on the floor whining “I don’t want to” (about pretty much everything).
So, having decided to have pumpkin risotto for dinner (we had half a butternut squash from our garden in the fridge) I found myself looking at this in the pan. And it made me happy.
one comment:Hope you feel better.
