|Nary a tissue in sight...|
Sadly, I have some kind of head cold thing going on right now. Could be allergies, could be a virus. My head feels too heavy for my shoulders, and that makes me sad.
FNSI for me was a solo performance. I missed Sandra, but I am pretty sure she could do without my tissue issues.
I really wanted to sit in my recliner and sulk, but that seemed kind of counterproductive on FNSI. I succumbed the virtual peer pressure of working with more than 150 crafters worldwide and finished my CROCHET infinity scarf. Yep, I finally learned to crochet without dropping stitches and making a general mess -- especially at the sides. This scarf is only done in single crochet -- so easy -- and uses almost all of Michaels' Impeccable Giant Ball of 4-ply worsted weight yarn. I chained 50 stitches on a number 6 hook and then just kept on going until the yarn was nearly gone. Then, I joined up the two ends to make a giant loop scarf. This colour is called Neapolitan. Can you guess why?
I had cut out some Tilda's Studio waterlilies earlier in the week -- two small and one large, so I figured I might as well give them a go. (aka the Sudafed was doing its job). I finished one little one, and I quite like the way it worked out. I also pulled out my collection of Pima paper flowers for the centres.

All in all, not a horrible FNSI, but not quite a much fun as last month's edition.
