Head full of fog

Head full of fog

Last week a simple cold turned into man flu which resulted in a feeling much akin to having ones head in a vice for several days.

This meant no bending down, so no tracing off patterns and cutting out and no having the concentration nor patience for fiddling with the thread tensions on my machine trying to sew up my new Mrytle Dress with particularly fine polyester/crepe material.

Times like these call for simple crochet.

I’ve needed a couple more pin cushions for a while now. One for every room of the house (almost).

Just two circles of double crochet joined together and stuffed.

They certainly looked cheerier than I felt.

Finally yesterday, Sunday, the fog had started to lift and I laid out my crochet squares to decide upon the order I was going to sew them up in.

And very pleasing they looked too.Circles within squares crochet blanket

I’m hoping to get back on my sewing machine this week. I miss it!

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I came back on Friday from a visit to the U.K. with the first cold I’ve had in about 6 years (must be the French mountain air) but luckily it was just a mild one.
    Anyway,you can never have enough pincushions.

  7. Glad you’re on the mend – crochet is the equivalent of comfort food whilst you’re under the weather, isn’t it? Great pin cushions:)
