Enforced rest

Ah well.  It's such a long time since I was ill, it was fairly obvious it wasn't going to be easy when it did finally come my way! Shingles.  Who knew how painful that could be?!  Anyhoo, lots of rest and sleep and meds.  I can do this.
The crochet blanket which was supposed to have a fabric border, now has a mid grey crochet edging. Still deciding which to go for.


I suppose the beauty of crochet first is that it's so easy to undo.

  2. Am living with the grey for a while then I'll wrap a piece of fabric round the edges and then decide. And shingles is more painful than I ever imagined! Sooner it's all gone the better! Xx

    1. That is so nice of you to say that Simone - though of course I can see lots of mistakes in it! The meds are helping me get through it, but am ready for sleeping through tonight! Take care xx

    1. Ooooh Vivienne it's so very hard to lie around and do nothing - especially when the weather was so lovely! And yet now that the rain and grey is here, it's quite nice to be curled up with a blanket and a couple of books xx

  5. Best of healing wishes to you...

    Synchrinosity... My doctor just gave me the shingles shot, a couple of days ago. Something I have been thinking of doing, and hadn't done.

    Gentle hugs,
