I have succumed to the germs that have been surrounding me for what seems like weeks. A hacking cough that feels like my throat is being ripped out, gritty eyes, a throbbing swollen nose and a head that feels like it's been kicked by a horse. I am down but I am not out. I will carry on until I have to give in and take to the sofa.
The bath time wrap was made yesterday and I love it. It's very simple being just a tube with elastic around the top and the bottom has been edged with homemade pink candy stripe bias binding. I think it has cost me about a pound in total. I've never sewn stretch towelling before so I spent some time with an offcut trying out stitches to find the best one for the job which paid off but I don't think I would buy any for a repeat performance.
No time to start on the serape so I may start that today.
Hubby has just left for work so I have a nice long afternoon until DD comes home and we go shopping. I have baking to do for the weekend as we are having a Mother's Day get together at my daughter in laws house. Her mum is coming up from London and there will be quite a houseful so we are having a cold buffet. I will make a couple of quiches, a bowl of coleslaw and a huge bowl of my famous potato and frankfurter salad and DDIL is adding green salad, assorted meats, crusty bread and pickles. Something sweet to have with a cuppa is a must so I will be making more of the lemon meringue cupcakes which went down very well at the baby shower. I expect the shopping bill will be slightly higher this week with the extras I have to get but not too bad I hope.
I have seen snow this morning.....not a lot but they do say the Midlands will be getting some.
Thanks for visiting today.
