Tickled Pink with a Red Shiny Nose

Hoarse voices have been heard here since last Friday and very loud squelchy sneezes. Add to this pale faces and a very sore red nose (me) and I think you can just about picture the beautiful scene here. Pick me ups for poorly wee Bun girls seemed to work the magic needed.

Their mummy seemed to take a bit longer mending. A morning sleeping seems to have done the trick and I feel less floppy. Curled up on the sofa this afternoon I've added stalks to Cheeky Cherries.


I've sewn in all the loose threads on the Happy Days Bunting. Sewing in threads is the equivalent  in joy factor of running fast up a muddy hill for me. I hate doing it, but I'm really pleased once it's all neat and finished.


Tommorow I might even get back to the things I was working on before this nasty thing came to visit. I must admit we did invite the bugs in. Mr Bun said too nonchalantly for words on Thursday evening how we'd missed all the nasty flu's and stuff. Then bingo I woke up full of the yucky thing the next morning.

Back to lovely things. I've been cutting out more blankety squares to sew words on. I laid a flower or two on one to see how the cream wool works with the brightness of the small cotton flowers. I'm thinking of some small wreath brooches, maybe with words embroidered inside.


Most of all I want to get on with this banner. Since seeing Nanny McPhee and the pig scratching machine, I've wanted to add the words Tickled Pink to something, anything. I'd started cutting my letters and adding them just before flopping. Now if I'm better tommorow I might just be getting on with it and even finishing it. Who knows.

  1. How bizarre. I saw some vintage cream wool blankets at the charity shop today and I thought of you! Hope you are feeling better - these things take longer to get rid of as we get older, I'm sure of it. Can't wait to see the brooches and banner. x

  12. I LOve those fabrics you're using and what a lovely phrase, 'tickled pink'! Hope you feel better soon. I uttered those famous last words a few weeks ago (not the tickled pink ones but the bug ones) and it made me catch a terrible cold. I think we need to keep quiet about it don't you? ;) xx

  14. Hope you feel better soon. I don't know about you but it seems to me that flu's and colds seem to last much longer than they used to. Sorry that doesn't sound like a cheerful comment! I like the Nanny McPhee idea - lovely.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
