A bit of this and a bit of that

Now I've been home from hospital for just over a week I'm slowly beginning to find my feet (sorry couldn't resist !!!).

The words 'do as you're told' and 'take it easy' are still ringing in my ears. I joked with Jennifer, one of the senior staff nurses at the hospital, that whilst I was down in London and Mr Gertie was at work, they had secretly installed video cameras in all of our rooms at home. Should I misbehave then a voice would boom down and tell me off !!!!!

Mr Gertie brought down from the loft the old kitchen table so I've been able to make myself a little den right next to the sofa. The phone, all my reading material, my laptop, my sewing, are well within safe reaching distance.

Close by are a couple of bags (all handmade of course.....) containing various other projects - another cable knit jumper, a cable knit blanket and the knitted trauma teddies and quilts originally started by my Mam that I'm finishing off.

I had hoped to show you what I've been up to this week but with it been Wimbledon fortnight, all I've done is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Hopefully I'll have something to show you next week.

Have a great week.

Gertie xx

PS why not pop over to Handmade Monday to see what other fellow craft bloggers have been up to.

  1. That really is having Big Brother watching you, but all in a good cause. I hope your recovery is going really well and I know what you mean about Wimbledon - how many times have I told myself I won't watch it! Hope you have a good week - tennis next week will be harder to resist :0)

  8. It sounds as if you are behaving yourself - those cameras are obviously working. Enjoy the second week - plenty of time for crafting afterwards :)
