There has been no sewing, as I've been busy fighting a fierce cold. It is a really ugly fight. Let's just say that I've been wearing my pj's all weekend.
The pockets found on Simplicity 2289 are perfect for holding an ample supply of tissues, my Vicks inhaler and Ricola cough candies.

Despite my unproductive state at my sewing table, I have managed to read the newspapers today. This article just had me purring, then coughing, and then wanting to purr some more.
I don't know if I mentioned it before but my favourite eyeglass shape are cat-eyed frames. I've been on the hunt for an authentic vintage pair for some time now. But I think others have caught on how fabulous they are and I'm still hunting.
