I think the seasonal lurgy I've avoided thus far is on its way. I can blame a few people for it. There is my mother who came back from a holiday from the Lake District with it. It's laid her low. Not-getting-out-of-bed-today-coughing-all-night low. Which as anyone who knows her will tell you is VERY unusual. I could blame work. The colleagues who are sneezing and wheezing themselves around the often freezing office. Still it will be a chance to crack open those pretty tissues that Judith put in the lovely scrappy tissue holder. (Although I really want to just admire them forever and not use them so I may just use my sleeve. Naughty Grin.)
I am going to blame the possibly imminent lurgy for cheering myself up for buying a few supplies. Angelic Grin. I'll blame Hadley for the fact it was at Remnant House, which I'd never heard of until she commented on my blog post the other day. I blame Anna of Noodlehead for having a skirt sew along on her blog and my needing supplies in the first place.
And just because I don't like blogging without a picture I thought I'd share this picture with you from the November 2001 (yes, I do mean 2001) - British Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I came across some old quilting magazines the other week, when I was clearing my spare bedroom ready for a guest. I blame Helen for why this made me giggle.
But don't worry Helen I have no plans to make this. I may buy knitwear at craft fairs, but I'd have to get completely delirious should the lurgy hit, before I'd make this. And if that should happen. Well I'll blame the lurgy won't I? :-)
