One of those weeks

Not much has been done here, Harry has had Flu, proper flu too! He wasn't right when he come home from school last Friday & his symptoms developed then developed etc. So that's what I've been up to. He's turned a corner thankfully & nearly at the end of it so hopefully we will be able to keep our family date night tomorrow evening.

We should be touch wood, going to a local tapas bar so fingers crossed.

Very little crafting has been done -

One set of Liberty hexies sown together for my quilt & I've made an even slower start on my crochet blanket too! Notice the use of my!

I washed the fat quarters I bought for Harry's quilt last weekend not thinking he would be so ill. They have remained in a pile all week dried but not ironed. My ironing pile is standing at over 5 ft. I'm 5 ft 1 inch you see that's how I know as it is slightly above me. I shall try to make a start on it on Sunday, well both actually! 


And finally a garden shot, do you remember back in November I was taking a shot of the veg garden each month. Well I didn't for December so I give you January's shot which is graciously sharing with December! Enjoy your day x

  1. January's garden, cold and bare, but not quiet, I can see things waiting for the warmer weather. Hope Harry is up and about over the weekend, there are some nasty bugs going around.

  3. Martyn had had some sort of bug for weeks now and just doesn't seem to be able to shake it off completely.

  4. Hope Harry's feeling better soon. Eleanor's started with a cold again, she just seems to get rid of one and then starts with another. She's gone to school today but I'm glad that it's the weekend so that she can dose herself up again ready for Monday.

  5. Oh dear, I hope Harry's completely better soon. A couple of the local schools have had one-third to one-half of the pupils of ill. I'm hoping it doesn't head this way, although I do have one boy home today - he actually seems completely fine though. I'm wondering how I fall for it every time. I love the winter garden shot. I was looking at some summer garden photos last night and it's hard to believe the change, but I do love to see it all clean and clear and having a rest. It makes the explosion of summer all the more wonderful. Wishing you a good weekend. CJ xx

  6. Poor Harry, hope he's soon on the mend. Proper flu is awful. Liking the fat quarters for his quilt-you will post a finished pic of it when it's done for Admiration Purposes won't you? The garden is looking very neat and tidy. Good luck with your ironing! For some reason I seem perfectly able to iron fabric for sewing yet am totally incapable of remembering to iron clothing :o) xx

  7. I hope Harry is back on his feet soon. My DD went to school this morning to discover only 16 out 30 classmates had arrived thanks to a stomach bug. Lots of illness about at the moment x x x

  8. Can't wait to see the blanket. I love the hexies, I wish I had the patience and ability to do that so neatly. Get well soon Harry x

  10. Fingers crossed that Harry is up and about so that you can enjoy your family evening. I too have a pile of ironing, I have no excuse other than I can't be bothered to do it. Have a great weekend.

  11. If my ironing pile was that high I would have run out of clothes.. there are more of you though. Good luck!

  12. Hope the poor patient is all mended in time for your tapas evening. Such a good idea to photograph the garden each month and record the changes. (Don't think I'd notice much difference if I did that as it seems like it's permanently autumn in our little plot!)

  13. I hope that Harry recovers for tomorrow. I shudder at the thought of a five feet plus pile of ironing!
    Have a good weekend! Flighty xx

  14. Poor Harry. Hope he's feeling better soon.

  15. Poor Harry - hope he recovers soon and that you can all go out. My crochet has slowed down over the last two weeks, although I have made other things. I love the idea of recording the garden throughout the year - I'll have to give it a try :)

  17. Eek :-( The bugs have landed in our home too, although thankfully not 'proper flu' as that is horrendous. Hope Harry is feeling much better soon. As for the ironing....I know the feeling! X

  18. I hope you'll find that the clothes at the bottom of the ironing pile have ironed themselves with the weight on top! I do love when my laundry is beautifully ironed but there are times when something's got to give. This could be one of those. Wishing Harry a speedy recovery although if my family's experience of the winter bug is anything to go by, this one could be a lurker. Hoping you keep healthy! x

  19. Oh please... I hope Harry will be better soon.

  20. Harry has my sympathy as proper flu is dreadful. Hope he feels better soon. Been slow progress with my blanket too, especially seeing as I unpicked it all and started again as I felt that I had chosen the wrong hook size! Worth it though as I have redone them and they look much better.
    Take care
    Xx

  21. You had me at Liberty Hexies, it is going to look amazing. I hope Harry gets well soon, whip him us some chicken soup! xo

  22. My garden shots would be unchanged for six months... October - April ... nothing grows here until April if we're lucky!! If you're making a hexie blanket, I commend you! That'll be a lot of hexies. Hope you make it to your family date night well enough to enjoy the food ;) Wendy x

  23. I hope the flu gets better soon! I would say have fun doing the ironing, but that is not fun! Find some good tv shows or movies to watch and keep you company while you iron! Hope you have a good weekend apart from that! xx

  24. Who invented ironing anyway? It's one of those things that everyone hates with a passion!
    I hope Harry makes a full recovery soon - and doesn't pass the ailment on to the rest of the family.

  25. Hi there, firstly I hope Harry is feeling lots better soon. And then thanks for popping over to say hello on my blog because now I've found your lovely space too 😊 Happy weekend and I'm looking forward to following along with your crafty adventures. Love Gilly xx

  26. I passed on the ironing as a chore early in our marriage. It helps that I'm a really bad housekeeper and don't need ironed sheets, towels or basically anything except shirts!
    Hope Harry is better soon. I work on improving attendance at a local school and this time of year is horrid; so many bugs of one sort or another, cold weather and post-Christmas slump are a pain to fight against. Have a better weekend x

  27. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comment. Sorry to hear that Harry hasn't been well but glad that he's on the mend now. I hope he continues to do so and you'll all have a lovely weekend. I like your Liberty hexies, I'll tune in to see how your quilt develops. I'm making or trying to make a lap quilt and your post has just reminded me that I need to wash my fabrics before sewing. x

  29. Thanks for popping over to my blog. Your garden is so much tidier than mine. I have started to chit the potatoes but there is much to do. Sorry your son is not well. Wishing him a speedy recovery. I might run a weekend crochet course, maybe you could come to that ? ...

  30. Hopefully Harry is well enough so you can all go to the Tapas bar!

  32. Love the sound of Liberty hexies, I have some liberty print fabric that I haven't decided what to make with, so you have given me an idea. Looking forward to seeing your plot spring to life. Proper flu is horrible, I hope Harry recovers soon.

  33. I hope Harry was better and you were able to go out together. Liberty hexes sound wonderful, I'm sure they'll be really pretty.
