I'm feeling rather battered and weak having spent the last 3 weeks (since 18th September) feeling really unwell. Having avoided the dreaded covid and having had 4 doses of vaccine I got ill. One of the students admitted coming in university although they knew they were covid positive and the rest is history. I'm pleased I'd had all the vaccines as I think I might not be here if I hadn't. I don't remember much of the first week but got excellent care from my family. Now I'm feeling very tired but ready to move on. I've been doing a little work on the computer today (Saturday) and I'm going to do some sewing a little later on. I will be asking Richard or Lucy to lift my machine onto the table as I'm not sure I can manage it but I am determined to have a fun time with some fabric. It will certainly be very soothing.
I was slowly organising myself for some sewing when Katy and little Aubrey arrived. I was really surprised how much Aubrey had grown and developed since I'd last seen him. He can now sit himself up and 'talks the whole time'. Katy wanted a new pencil case so I offered to make her one. A nice easy project for the day. I offered Katy a range of fabrics and she chose some batiks. This was a nice quick project but by the time I'd finished I felt really tired so had to have a nap.
The pouch is slightly bigger to accommodate the extra pens she has for the children who have lost or forgotten their.
Later in the day I took some time out to do some hand stitching on the Christmas stitchery. I didn't do very much but at least I've made a start.
On Sunday Lucy, Richard and I went over to Katy and Oliver's new house. They moved in last week and they are still trying to get everything straighten out. I took my small sewing machine with me as Katy wanted some curtains altering. It took a couple of hours but by the time we left the curtains were hanging up at the window. I have agreed to make new curtains as they work through the rooms, redecorate and make it their own.
I went into work today and felt OK but tired. I'm taking things slowly but I hope to make time to work on my projects. I've already planned Friday as my sewing day for this week. I also need to catch up on my blog reading. I'll start that tomorrow. I need to catch up with what's been going on in blogland.
