Posting from work today, so it'll just be a quick one.
First of all, hello to anyone who has just joined me. I'm having problems with Blogger - it won't let me access my list of followers, so I don't know who you are! Neither can I access the button to follow anyone else's blog. No doubt it will right itself eventually and then I can get round to everyone.
I'm still feeling rough with this cold, which isn't normal, so I've booked a visit to the docs for Wednesday. In the meantime I'm just trying to get plenty of sleep because I feel worn out. I've never had a cold last this long before.
My eldest son called this morning and gave me a lift into work, so I took the opportunity to ask him for any old shirts he had. His reply was, "I haven't any I'm getting rid of. I tend to wear them till they fall apart these days!" Times are obviously hard! I remember when he thought nothing of spending £70 on a shirt and he had to have new clothes every week. Seems like he's wised up as he's gotten older. He said he could spare one for me though when I told him about the quilt.
I must have patchwork fabric on the brain at the minute - I keep looking at people in the street and thinking "Ooh, that shirt/dress/whatever would look lovely in my quilt". I even did it to a work colleague this afternoon!
The crochet granny squares are coming along well. I might be ready to try doing multi-coloured ones now. It's the thought of all those yarn ends to sew in that puts me off!
I still have another hour at work, then it's off home and a quick visit to the library before settling down for the evening. Still not sorted the laptop - I'll be taking it back to the shop tomorrow.
