Jabba The Hutt..........!!!

......that just about sums up what I feel like this morning....sluggish, slimy and disgusting.
I hurt everywhere.
I am ravenously hungry yet can't face eating.
I can drink...tea, coffee, water etc but it all tastes horrible.
I think I may well hibernate until this bug/cold decides to go away....which I hope it does soon.
Thank you all for your good wishes on my post yesterday.

I have only just opened my parcel which arrived yesterday so you can tell how bad I was.

Here is what came.......

Love the pattern for the button shoulder dresses but I don't love those huge applique things stuck all over them so I won't be adding those.
From the other pattern I will probably only make the trousers, shorts and skirt as I don't think the blouse would be very practical for Miss Wrigglepants.
The fabric won't be suitable for either of these patterns but will be great for a sleeveless summer dress with a full skirt.
Last but not least....a 30cm embroidery hoop for some American primitive stitchery I want to have a go at sometime this year to make some cushion covers.

Today will not be the day I put my mojo to use. I dread to think what I would end up with if I tried to make anything with my head in the state it's in.
The hoover has been pushed round and that is about all I can manage so I think a sofa afternoon after I have had a shower and washed my hair.

Thanks for dropping by today.


  1. I hope you feel better for a shower and hair wash Sheila. It sounds like this bug has hit you hard. Take it easy. X

  2. Take good care of yourself Sheila - it sounds like you are. That material is just so lovely.

  3. Aw, I hope you're on the sofa now with your feet up. It's nice to have something to look forward to for when you're feeling better xx

  4. These bugs are horrible that are going around at the moment, take it easy. Love the patterns.

  5. Still rough then? Keep snuggling and hopefully it will go away soon...just don't expect your energy back right away. x

  6. I hope you can shake this off and feel better soon.

    Nice to have some sewing projects to focus on for when you feel better. x

  7. I'm impressed that you managed to hoover x


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
