Is it safe yet...?



Well, my brain grew back, took one look at the projects and deadlines coming up and promptly, and most conveeeeeniently, got sick.

A few light brushes with a stomach bug flu that's turned into a sort of bronchial thing.

I'm not seriously complaining. I've still managed to go in to work each day (yay. not.) and sort of function. I know plenty of people here who've been out for days with these bugs (respiratory and stomach). Hey... in fact... it's probably their fault I'm sick now!




I do think that one thing that might really cheer me up would be to see fabulous vacation photos posted here by my sis, Caroline. Hey C! Where's the cruise shots?!



In leiu of that I offer some WIPs.

Some knitting...
a mixed weight scarf of laceweight and boucle...

The Ida vest by Vivian Hoxbro...
And some sewing...

A lace overlay skirt with several different color linings...

An Issey Miyake skirt and top (rather tame for Issey really)...
Several tops with assorted necklines and sleeve lengths in some lovely rayon lycra knits...

There is such a nasty bug going around this year--hope you're feeling better soon! (Especially if you're not going to get a sick day with old movies & lots of knitting)

What will the finished vest look like? That panel is really different-looking. Your sewing projects look very interesting, too. Is this fabric from your stash?

I looked up the vest...very nice. I wasn't even close to picturing it correctly. Also, feel better. You are certainly getting a lot done despite the bug. You also have more projects going than I do.
