This will be my world today. Comfy jammies, hot tea, cough drops, tissues, and a book or some embroidery. I had the weekend off and asked for today off since Rick would be home. So many plans for these three days. I was going to sweep the basement in anticipation for turning on the plant lights. Working on a granny square quilt, and making some soap. Oh well, those things will get done eventually.
Rick is painting cabinets, baking herb bread, and running some errands for me. (He can't sweep the basement. He's very allergic to the dust and mold down there.) He doesn't mind taking care of me, I do it for him when he's sick.
Before this cold hit me, I was trying to make a crocheted heart from an online tutorial. Actually tried several pretty patterns, but just could not follow them. I got so frustrated, it couldn't be this hard! So I just made my own pattern, which was a first for me.
I was very happy with how they turned out. Rick suggested starching them. So here is my little heart banner ready for Valentine's Day.
Stay well and warm!
