I think I need to go to Specsavers

I woke up this morning and felt in the mood to do some cleaning (not something that happens very often). I also thought doing something physical might entice my muse to return. The last couple of days I seem to be looking at stuff but not having much idea what to do with it.

I set off with a will to clean the house. I cleaned the windows, inside and out, my cooker, the unit fronts, my Horn cabinet, two settees and a reclining chair, the carpet. Then I started to shake, got very hot and dizzy and felt a bit fuzzy. Hmm I thought better check by blood levels and yep I was in hypo state with blood glucose well below 3. I shove down glucose tablets, milk and had lunch and a rest. Then I went back and washed the kitchen floor. It was after I'd done this that I decided I should have gone to specsavers. I'd added bleach to the water I washed the kitchen floor in. When I threw the empty bleach bottle in the recycle bin I noticed the label - "Mr Muscle Drain Cleaner" but the kitchen floor is very clean.



I have manage to do some sewing for the 100 Stitches in 200 Days on Stitchinfingers though. These seam treatments are my Day 47 to 52 - I haven't done 51 yet as I didn't have a suitable space to put it in.

Day 47
Day 48
Day 49
Day 50
Day 52

One exciting thing did happen today, my copy of Maggie Grey's new book "textile translations" mixed media arrived in the mornings post. I made myself leave it and do the cleaning maybe I should have curled up with it. There is an on-line class with Maggie for anyone buying this book, you the details are on the D4Daisy site, just follow the links.

Beautiful embroidery Annette. I can't believe how quickly Maggie's book is getting delivered. I've got mine on order too.
All that cleaning would have made me dizzy too!!
