I'm a bit out of sorts. The other person who lives here would tell you that I've got my cranky pants on. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I've still a bit sick from the tonsillitis and flu that I've had for the last two weeks. Kind of like the burnt bits on the BBQ that you can never scrape off - that's me and my sore throat. Or perhaps it's because I've just spent three wonderful days in warm, albeit wet, Brisbane celebrating Dad's 70th birthday with the rest of our crazy extended family.
And now here I am in cold, wet, foggy Canberra and I am really, really missing Queensland.
Anyway, onto happier things. I finished my hot water bottle cozy late last week and it is totally the bomb, as the young 'uns say. Fer shiz.
I used the orange bias binding, and orange buttons, all vintage. I'm distressed that my vintage button collection isn't as big as it used to be. That happens when you use your collection, I suppose. I'd better get collecting again.
Maybe I'll do a tutorial for the cozy - how to make this was in my head so long it would be a shame not to jot it down in writing.
