The week that was…

dear diary,

this week that was full of germs and need not be remembered!

Oh yes, my girl and I have had the ‘bad lurgy’ all week and have spent most days  just moping around in slow motion trying our best to keep some cheer in our lives. Not easy when outside it’s gloomy and inside you spent hovering between the pantry (to warm up your wheat cushion in the microwave to soothe your tummy) and the bathroom (I won’t elaborate).

Spending time in my studio always cheers me up. The tranquility of being surrounded by yarn, books and notions, looking out over the mountains is soothing at all times and makes me instantly feel better.

I did manage to play with yarn almost every day, even if it was only for a little while…

For a Crochet Workshop

Work on my new Lola Loops book had to take a back seat, as I mostly managed to make a lot of mistakes which made me realise that tummy bugs and paracetamol don’t get on well with mathematical charts that need to work when put into practice. I can’t wait to get back to work on it though as it will be full of lusciousness in this years S/S Pantone colours. Here is a sneak view…

If there is anything good about not feeling well at all, then the only thing I can think of is that one can manage to catch up on reading all those lovely magazines that keep piling up.

Well I have done plenty of that this week too…

…always best

Today we are feeling a little more human, the sun is shining and we have opened the windows to let the germs fly far far away. 🙂
