A week of halves

We are back in the groove now that half term is over and we are returning to school/ work. We have had a really relaxing time away but it was truly a week of halves…

I had a vile cold for half the week and retreated to bed on a couple of occasions. I shared the love virus with my husband so that he felt ill for the second half of the week. The boys spend half their time studying or revising and we all put up with the rain/hail for 6 days. Despite the weather, and feeling under the weather, we did enjoy being off the treadmill and just chilling. My hubby and I even managed to see Skyfall at the cinema.

I had taken a list of the sewing that I wanted to get done whilst away but again I only managed half of my list. I accomplished half putting together some zippy pouches and only half managed to finish two rows of the Bee in My Bonnet Row along.

The snowball blocks on the left will eventually evolve into apples and the butterflies on the right need to be sashed and joined together into a row.

I guess I will be trying to catch up this week but I also have my hipBee block to make for Catherine and the Bee a Brit Stingy Christmas challenge to start planning. So really I am still on the conveyer belt of life, never really catching up at all! Tomorrow I am going to be catching up with bloggy friends though as Trudi is coming to visit and I am going to Tanya's tomorrow evening for 'Stitching it Together' where the mysteries of crocheting are going to be explained! That, for me, is the best sort of catching up!

  8. Sorry you had the lurgy while you were away. We went to see Skyfall over half-term too - nice to see a grown up movie for a change. Love your row along blocks - I was tempted by that QAL but just knew I had too many other things on. Look forward to watching your progress. Have fun with Trudi and Tanya et al and say hi from me!
