It's actually typical that I'm sick, as I'm currently on my last 3 weeks of vacation time this year and off from work. Today actually is my first day of said vacation and since last Thursday a really nice cold has me firmly in its grip. I already thought Friday and Saturday were bad, as since last Friday I have gone through at least 100 paper tissues, but today I can now add a cough onto the list as well and I hate it!!
But enough of that, I doubt you want to read about the load of snotty filled tissues that is filling my bin, among the few bits of thread and fabric that went into the trash after yesterday's sewing adventure. Yeah, I thought sewing would cheer me up a bit, so I worked on my mug rug for the 3rd round of the Mug Rug Revival which is currently running on Flickr, except that sewing with said runny nose is quite difficult. Two lines done on the paper-pieced feather and tissue alert, and so on and so forth, but I got it all done. Took me longer thanks to all the interruptions, but it's done. Yay!
And there went another mini forest in yet another tissue... coughs...what I actually meant to say is, that I hope my partner will like her mug rug.
A few goodies will be added before I mail this off, but I don't want to show them here, because that would probably entirely reveal who I'm making for. Some more pictures and close-ups of this mug rug can be found on my Flickr page.
