The little bear at the front is Holly's favourite 'sleepybear'. She's had him since she was a baby he's very loved and could probably do with a bit of re-stuffing. I have already patched his body once with one of her first babygrows and that's worn out too now.

This is just a quickie. I've finally been to the doctor today after having a cough for three weeks, he says it's viral and has given me stuff to take 4 times a day which will also make me sleep to kill the cough (as he put it). I really don't need to be going to sleep in the day so we'll see, also the blood pressure is a bit low and even lower when I stand up hence the dizziness today apparently something to do with said virus. Anyway I won't bore you with all my medical symptons, just to say I'm feeling a little light headed and a glass of wine hasn't passed my lips! - not since Wednesday anyway.

This is just to let you know I have FINALLY finished my first ever crochet project - the blanket which became a cushion for Holly.

I used the fabric I bought at the antiques market for the back and added a pretty dark pink button to finish off. I made the inner myself, ideally it could do with a bit more stuffing but I think Holly will like it because it's all soft and squishy.

I also added a few little crochet flowers (my first attempts also) to the middle of four of the squares just for a bit more prettiness. I've put it on her bed for her to find when she comes home from school. I hope she's pleased with it.

Enjoy your weekend. I'll have to do a post about the fab giveaway I received today from Bex at Bexs Buttons over the weekend when I'm feeling a bit more with it.
Take care all.

Lovely surprise for her Nicky I agree. Nice things you have been working on.Dont want to get into the medical here to much but did your doctor check your blood sugar?He should of sent you for a test for that.It maybe that your blood sugar is low,causing dizziness and weakness.But not to worry hes your doc im just a nurse LOL.Just was curious though...have a great weekend Nicky and do take care of yourself!

The cushion is great, what a brilliant thing to find when she comes home from school!

I hope you're feeling a lot better soon, sometimes it seems we just can't shift things by ourselves. I was so relieved that antibiotics worked so fast when I had a sore throat for a month.

Love the little cushion, it's great!!! Looks really pretty, and cuddly!!
Hope you feel better soon, maybe you need a bit of rest, and take things easier a bit!! I have had a stomach bug this week, and over it now, but feel washed out. I think we should both take it easy!!

Take care, hun : )
