Getting comfy

Good afternoon :)

Thanks for all the comments on my CK problem. I've contacted them via facebook and now email and am waiting a reply from them.

This is my view for most of today;

Aren't those stockings fetching!! The reason, a day stay in hospital yesterday after a minor 'female' tweak. Today I've been told to take it easy and the stockings can come off tonight - hurrah.

Its given me a chance to catch up with Great Expectations that I recorded over Christmas - 2 down, final part to go. I've also been adding another strip to my eventual 100 square blanket - now at 70 squares;


I've also caught up with the end sewing in on my Giant Granny blanket - now 36 rounds big;

I'll keep going with this one for as long as the yarn lasts - the one I'm using has been discontinued - I think I'll be able to get another 10 rounds added before I run out though.

There's someone I've been meaning to introduce you all too - his name is Jack and he arrived here with the VV family just before Christmas;

 Isn't he a total hunk - all furry faced with a fat tummy - a bit like MrVV ;)

He was my win from a giveaway that Jackie @ Sew Special Bears had last year (sorry no link blogger is being a right PINTA today). Thank you again Jackie - he's gorgeous and he's still mine - little son hasn't even attempted to pinch him - I think after all these years I've mastered that 'don't even think about it' look!!

Right time to go back to the sofa - armed this time with a mug of tea and some painkillers!!

You are a glutton for punishment in the putting your feet up department .... Can't say I blame you it looks so cosy albeit painful .... The crochet looks fab and I hope CK get their act together for you. xx

Is it wrong that I am jealous of you having a little op because you get an enforced day on the sofa? I hope your tweaked bits are well now... your blankets are b-e-a-u-tiful! :)x

Ouch that female tweak sounds not much fun, it's not easy being the fairer sex is it? Hope you're better soon.
I adore your bear from Jackie he's a beauty isn't he, adorable!

Hope you are taking it easy and on the mend, the sofa is the best place to be this weather.

Don't remind me about those stockings. I once spent 2 1/2 weeks in them when I had a blood clot. They said I could'nt take them off not even to wash them!
