What A Week

What a week!  It started with all good intentions until I came down with a head cold.  I had a sore throat on Sunday and by the time Monday evening came around, I was feeling terrible.  I spent the next 4 days in bed, yes it was that bad!  I detest late winters colds, everyone around me seems to have it, and I thought I was going to get through winter without one, no such luck.  I am still a little congested, mainly when the cold evening air comes in, but definitely on the mend. 

Yesterday, Saturday I actually stayed up for the entire day, I sat in front of the TV and stuffed my "old St Nick" Santa from my last post.

I finished him off today, and although he doesn't look like the pattern cover photo, I was happy with the end result

Another Christmas project crossed off the list.  This is my next one - from my own  Cat 'n Cart Crafts designs, Xmas Elf.  A quick and easy project -  as there are no arms and legs in this pattern, you actually just stuff the shirt and trousers, sneaky!

Also - CONGRATULATIONS to Kate & Matt (my niece and her husband) who announced that they are expecting their first child.  Fantastic news.

Hope you had a great weekend and I certainly hope this cold will disappear completely this week, and I will be back to my normal self

  1. Sorry about that cold. Your Santa came out great. Good to have the Christmas list with cross off's showing up on it. Looking forward to seeing the elfs.
