Snow & Sniffles!

What do you do when you have a case of the dreary Winter sniffles...???...
Why, get to stitching....
 2 new wool felt mini stockings... embellished with some seed beads and trim... I enjoy 'Penny Rug' projects...
yoyos galore! 

I am down with a case of the know the kind, slight sore throat, runny nose itchy eyes,... just miserable enough to not feel like doing much.... yet cranky enough, because you know you have things to do!
So I resigned myself to the fact... everything can wait till tomorrow (or the next day).... so I turned on the 'idiot tube' (TV) and watched some wonderful old re-runs like The Rifelman, Bonanza, Big Valley, Bewitched etc... and all the while,,, I just kept stitching away....
I always have prepared projects that I can do... I call them my "Grab-n-go-n-sew" kits.... so that's just what I did,,, except, I didn't go anywhere.
Hmmm, maybe having the sniffles isn't such a bad thing... I got a few projects finished. 


  1. Sweet stockings and a lovely pile of yoyos! I'm sorry to hear you're feeling 'under the weather'. I hope you can fight it off quickly. Great idea to always have some handwork ready to go.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog concerning my picture posting problem. I'll keep trying.

  2. Your socks are wonderful . . . and you are ahead of the game for next Christmas.
    Have a marvelous day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  3. I found ColdCalm homeopathic stuff really helps with colds. Lots of rest and fluids, and s-l-e-e-p...

  4. I was watching the news last night, and heard that this season has been the highest for the flu and other colds. I didn't feel so good last night either. I guess stocking up for winter, so I don't have to go out so much, is a good thing - all those germs and such.

  5. I hope you're feeling better and not coming down with that flu that seems to be everywhere! I'm like you, I have a hard time sitting down in the daytime as there are things to do but I did that a week or so ago and it was really nice and like you I got lots farther with my needlework than I ever do just working on it in the evenings here and there.
    I love your projects and of course I love felt and felted wool applique too. Too darn cute! And your yo-yo's! Darling! Have some chicken noodle soup and hot lemonade with honey and take care of your sweet self!

  6. Wonderful, I love your work!!!
    Thank you for your comment, good luck for my Candy tomorrow!



I love hearing from you....
