sense & sensibility, part II

on friday i finally succumbed to the sore throat and cough that had plagued me since a whirlwind day trip to salt lake city on tuesday (snow was involved). so i was a sensible girl and spent the day here:

sick bed

mmm, it's a lovely new quilt we bought a couple weeks back. it's just the right weight and i adore it - and i spent many hours beneath it on friday, whilst checking my blackberry between naps and, ... why, what's this?


it appears to be a hood! (can't you tell?) well, the scarf had a bit of a mishap in the los angeles international airport and had to be ripped back. i was a bit despondent and being sick and all, i need something soft and scrunchy and nice to knit. oh, i do love this blue sky cotton!

i've since knit quite a bit more on this one - but was interrupted today when a couple of crafty ladies stopped by for brunch and jewelry making.

crafty girls

both gals proved quite adept and i sent them home with some spare sheets of shrink plastic to experiment further! such a nice sunday; such a relaxing, crafty weekend.
