I've had both Louise and Peter down with colds over the last few days. Louise is on the mend and went back to school this morning, but poor little Pete has developed an ear infection in both ears and is feeling rotten. I took him to the doctor this morning and he's now on antibiotics so hopefully he'll start to perk up soon. I hate seeing him in pain and not being able to soothe his hurt. The children's paracetamol doesn't seem to help much so all we can do is wait for the antibiotics to kick in.
I finished my little Maria Van S kit -
I changed it a bit - I left off the corners because I thought they were unnecessary on the hand dyed fabric, I also left off some of the stars and the backstitched flummery on the top of his hat. Also, the stamens on the flowers were supposed to be green (duh..obviously!) and with other things on my mind I didn't notice until I'd nearly finished them and then I didn't feel like frogging it all.
I'm back to stitching on Cottage Garden Fairy, here's the current state of play -
I'm not feeling very motivated to work on this though. I don't know why...I love the design, I love the fabric, I just find it hard to make myself work on it. I'm hoping that if I persist I'll find the groove for it again.
