The thing about being sick....

and coughing non-stop to the point where you wake yourself up....you can get a whole lot accomplished in the morning on Saturday!

While I did attempt some cleaning, the majority has been crafting.

Of course, I needed to stop for a tea break and drink some tea with honey for my cough and a little bit of sustenance. I used the tea cup I bought in China today.


I had a few visitors come to visit me, braving the wilds of the houseplants to make an appearance.


We had a great time visiting and talking about their future home, but they soon left and I had to do a little bit of washing dishes.


I am off to the store now to pick up some food for dinner. I had best grab my purse...perhaps I can take my new one.

That purse came out so cute, good job! I hope you feel better, but good for you for taking advantage of the down time to turn ufo's to fo's!

Thanks!! I am on a roll today with the WIPs turning into FOs....have a few more which should be FOs if not today, then this weekend at least! I love how things seem to come in spurts and all get finished at once.

Mimi said...

Oooh, your cable purse is so cool and classy!

Kimberly said...

Thanks Mimi! I keep trying to decide if I want to make another one....I think though I might find a pattern that is a little bit bigger.....but cables are a must!

Wow! i love your purse. Don't know what it is about cables and purses, but i keep hoarding all the patterns! Haven't made any yet, though :D
Your creatures are cute, but your teacup looks a bit like a cupcake ;)

I JUST CHECKED IN ON YOU A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. YOU HAVE BEEN REALLY BUSY. HOPE YOU GET TO FEELING BETTER. I LOVE IT ALL. THE PURSE, DISHCLOTH AND CRITTERS.

Swapnae - I too keep hoarding patterns with cables.....this is the first one I've made in a while, but I really need to start stash busting so I'm digging into project books as we speak!

Kathy - glad you like it all! It has been a busy weekend so far for me.....will see if it continues!

I hope you feel better soon Kimberly. Ilove your new FOs. And that cables bag is really cute!!!! I'd love to make that. Now, where did you hoard these patterns from? I'm very interested.

I like everything very much, Kimberly! The turtles are really cute, the purse looks chic and I don´t get bored with your dishcloths!
Zori is coming to you, so get well soon! She must be arriving in Zurich in a couple of hours!

Kimberly said...

Thanks Yasmin - I posted the pattern location on my next blog post for ya! Have fun!

Vik - thank you! I am trying to get better - drinking honey & tea non-stop. I'm excited to see Zori again here in Brussles, oh the wild night we just might have!

Here you are sick and still knitting and crocheting. Hope your honey and tea has helped with the coughing and the black eyes. You need to feel better and look good for your nights out with Zori. Have fun and be careful.
