It is time for a little whine and a moan. I lost my voice last Tuesday- mid class it went from singing and talking to whispering in 10 minutes. The strangest experience, I have lost my voice before but not without warning. It was the last class of the morning and I thought I would rest up and it would return. Hmm, Sunday, running a temperature, a mountain of tissues and wondering about how next week will be. Two very welcome parcels this week though. I did a fabric swap with Charise- what lovelies she sent, vintage in there as well as modern. I can only fantasise about her great her fabric stash is.
I have got to know Charise via Flickr and admiring her creations...take a minute to look at this. See what I mean! Thankyou Charise!
I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway at Wynn's ZakkaArt blog. She has recently posted a tutorial for a lovely patchwork bag- see the links here. A beautiful stack of 4 fat quarters in pretty colours, gorgeous and soft. Thankyou Wynn!
So I am sniffing, snuffling and croaking away. Other crappy things this week: my phone broke- life without my Blackberry is sadly a bit hard, there is a magic man nearby who is fixing it for a small fee, hoepfully back by Thursday. The mouse on my computer bust, and my laser printer packed up too. My head has not been up to speed either- I tried to dial my own phone number today, and numerous pans have been burnt, water left on etc. A costly week.
Normal service will be resumed soon. I was meant to be seeing Ben Howard play tonight, too poorly to go, I've sold my tickets and made someone else and her daughter very happy, so I'll leave you with this and stop the whinge. I'll be better soon and I will try and feel 'gracious' too.
