Apologies

Thank you all for joining in with my blogversary giveaway, especially those who haven’t felt able to comment before.  It’s been lovely to get to know a few more people and discover some more blogs and to visit some blogs that I have been neglecting. :-D

I did say that I would draw the winner today but I am S T I L L suffering with this horrible cough and I just don’t have the energy to sort it out so I am now planning to do the draw at the weekend when I may have a bit more energy (god willing and a following wind!). 

As some compensation for you having to wait I have made a third gift to add to the pot.

I have to confess that I didn’t make this heart but I have embellished it so I hope whoever wins it likes it.

I’ve finally given in and gone back to the doctor’s and he sent me for an x-ray this morning so I now have to wait to get the results and to get in to see him again.  Would you believe, I couldn’t get an appointment before next Wednesday?!!  Yesterday he told me to come back in 3 or 4 days.  Some chance!  I’m going to see how I feel on Monday and ring in if I still feel ropey.  Of course, if there’s no evidence of a bacterial infection I will still have to wait for it to clear on its own.  My dear DH is looking after me but I really have had enough of all this coughing!

Having said all that and had a good moan, I am actually supposed to be going to a felt workshop tomorrow.  I have decided to go and if necessary come home early as I don’t want to let the tutor and my friend down.  Fingers crossed I don’t disturb everyone with my coughing.

That cough is a devil to get rid of and I'm so sorry you still have it. Mine has just about gone, thank goodness, but not before I had nearly rotted my teeth from sucking so many 'soothing' lozenges! I too felt exhausted by it and can sympathize with you. Do hope you begin to pick up soon and start to feel better. The little heart is sweet. Enjoy the felt workshop. Love the butterfly on your header pic - treats to look forward to.

Hope today went well - I'm sure that sheer determination not to miss out will have got you thru the workshop today. Allow yourself a hot toddy & rest up. Sounds like you've got the same wonderful man by your side that I have!

Gosh, but you've had a hard time with the virus but you've done an amazing amount of work! The dyeing has inspired me to get out into my wet studio soon! Absolutely beautiful colors. Congrats on your gorgeous piece in the flyer and 600posts! I'm a bit behind on my blog!
hugs,
Gail

You have my sympathy Julie I now have a lousy cold. I think it may have been the stress caused by having to draw that bought it on :-) The heart is lovely. Enjoy tomorrow I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

Get well soon poorly bunny

So sorry you're still suffering. I know you can't take cold remedies, what about medicated Strepsils? That's what K's been on this week. His voice nearly went on Monday- mid lesson! Not good!

I love that heart, and know a wee dragon who'd love it too :)

I finished the needle-felt mousie, so pop by and have a look if you get a mo!

Good luck with the class!
