This is a migraine bag. I’ve been having a lot of them lately. When Lovely Husband had to go to the supermarket chemist at 6am as he couldn’t find the meds. (He is such a hero!) I thought it was about time I did something about it. This bag now hangs on the back of the craft room door -so bright that it can’t be missed.
Needless to say once I had the meds, all the meds which couldn’t be found started re-appearing. Isn’t there a law about that sort of thing?
My Dickens cushion cover is all finished. Have you made any promises to yourself for the New Year?
Lastly, this wallhanging has been on my Wanna Make List for a while. I made it in blue and white to go with the blue and white china in the dining room.
Now Craft Olympics
Can everyone please ensure that they have given me their blog post links to each of their 5 challenges. I have updated what I can, but if I have missed a post with a thimble challenge of yours on, then please email me the link to your post which contains it, if it isn’t already present. Or leave a comment with the exact link here.
We only have until 1st January. so I want everything all straight by then. You will understand why in the New Year.
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I am loving the family time while Daughter is home from uni. I hope you are still enjoying this season of toasting marshmallows, and drinking hot chocolate too.
