For the past week or so I feel like I have been wading through treacle. A chest infection, which I chose to ignore ("it's just a cough") had really taken a hold and strong anti-biotics were needed to knock it on the head. I have had to try and rest up, but I find this very difficult. However, most of the time I just felt like I had drunk a bottle of something very strong, and had a woolley head and no energy whatsoever. I have taken the last pill now, so hopefully I will get my brain and my energy back.
I have watched tv and read. I couldn't even muster enough energy or desire to sew - or rather, I really wanted to sew, but just couldn't get my brain to co-operate. I just wanted to SIT.
Well, I have tried to inspire myself now, by taking these photos. I REALLY want to get started on the beautiful picture of Widecombe-in-the-Moor, but know that I should be finishing off my Devon village x-stitch first. I want to work through all those lovely Flower Fairy charts too . . .
Anyway, I have at least allowed myself the indulgence of writing a shopping list of DMC threads I need for the Widecombe picture. Why is it that however many skeins of embroidery floss you have (the box is just the overflow from the many many skeins looped through holes punched in the sides of old cornflake packets) you always need more when you start a new project?
