~Spread the Love not the Lurgy~

Last week of the hols and yesterday I developed tonsillitis- lovely red swollen spotty tonsils, a temperature, and feeling grotty.  I haven't been to the GP, just attempted a 3-pronged self-medicating approach...
1. Gargling with aspirin
2. Hot lemon and manuka honey
3. Ben & Jerry's ice cream :)
I feel a bit better though my throat *hurts*
Must be better by tomorrow as I am off here to the NEC for a girly jaunt serious buying trip to look at lots of lovely gifts and homewares...including my lovely suppliers at St Eval Candles in Cornwall.
Sewing in my pyjamas today I made this...
...made from vintage paisley glazed cotton and a felted blanket, backed in red linen.
So, I'm spreading  *the love* not *the lurgy* and wishing all you lovely folk a smashing weekend x x


  1. Hello Sally

    Hope you have a good weekend too Sally and can get rid of the tonsillitis pronto!
    Very much like the letter appliques you¡ve made up for this cushion....I get the impression that it is a nice warm cosy cushion. I get that impression due to the cream fabric you've used for the cusion cover.What is that fabric?

    Get better soon

    Amanda :-)

  2. Hi Amanda
    thanks for that :)
    The cream fabric is a car boot sale pure wool knitted baby blanket that I felted on a 60 degrees wash, it's lovely and soft and not itchy! x sally

  3. Oh that sounds nasty and painful. Hope your remedies work quickly and you enjoy your visit to the NEC.
    Beautiful cushion, l bet it is really snuggly.
