A pleasant sunny day without humidity is a nice change here today.  We have had some warm days but they were quite humid which is rather unusual down here in the south. We have had lots of rain, warm humid days, and some cooler days . All higgildy piggildy... or whatever that expression was during my childhood. 

I took advantage of the sunshine and replanted the pots and tub on my verandah.

I crocheted more pretty flowers during the week.

I bought Fiona Mc Intosh's latest book and loved it as much as all her other ones I have read. 

I hope those of you who live up North have avoided the cyclone and are all safe.

My crochet garden blooms are growing. I am loving these colours . 

A few each day keeps me inspired despite the fatigue . Working with the colours makes me feel happy and the rhythmic pace of doing crochet is calming. Do you find this with your craft? Thanks for visiting me.

3 weeks ago I came down with Covid for the first time. I have been quite vigilant from the beginning and still wear a mask in the supermarket if there are a lot of people  around me.  However, I caught it from my daughter and grandsons . Even though they have had it before I managed to dodge it back then having not been around them at the contageous time. So hubby and I both got it this time. I had no runny nose or cough, just a sore throat one afternoon then by that night I had a shocking migraine and was very nauseous. I couldn't keep a sip of water down so I couldn't take any pain killers. To top it off I collapsed on my bedroom floor rug and woke up confused as to why my face felt scratchy lol. The next day my daughter had to come over to assist despite having Covid herself and an ambulance was called because I was dehydrated and my head was exploding. After giving me some sublingual anti nausea medication things improved but I face planted on the bathroom floor the following night and woke up with my nose bleeding everwhere. Judging by how sore my nose felt the next few days I think I had fallen on my nose. So, once again, not much craft has been done the past few weeks but I did open that yummy pack of yarn and I have started the project I bought it for.

I have been enjoying this book series and finished book 3. I have passed them on to my mum who is also loving them. Book 4 is on my shelf waiting to be read and the final book, number 5, is on its way from Booktopia. 

I won't be doing much craft today as I pulled a neck muscle in bed last night while simply changing position .  Gotta laugh. Ain't ageing fun! 


  The past week or so I have cleaned out 4 drawers, 3 cubicles and my drawers of colour coded scaps for applique. A basket full of patterns ...
