Sniff, sniff - cough, cough - glub, glub!

Four more pages from my book - sorry they are rather dark but the light has been awful for the past couple of days.

I have an absolute stinker of a cold and really need at least one extra hand while photographing - two for the photos and one for mopping my nose almost continuously.

I have to keep the pages pinned together so that when I come to assemble them, they will be in the right order. A great deal of muttering goes on as I check and double-check that they are all where they should be.

I wondered why I had kept that skeleton holly leaf all this time!


I should be doing more course work but don't think I can concentrate at present so might just do a bit more page edging which doesn't require much imagination.


Avoid the germs and keep healthy!

This is beautiful work! I'm envious (of the talent, not the head cold),

Julie said...

Beautiful pages Heather. I hope you feel much better soon x

When you describe the lighting, I think of you as a Dickensian figure working by candle and snuffling as you go.

That's the worst phase of a cold, I think, but the good news is it will be over soon. Then you have the persistent cough to contend with!

Sorry, Heather. I hope you improve soon. My mom is sick with it too.

I recommend lots of garlic!

Do take care of yourself, and get better real soon. The book is looking wonderful.

Heather said...

Bless you all - your kind thoughts will help me through the day. At least I slept well last night. I really hope my husband doesn't catch this one. He gets a chest infection with most colds - not good.

Just catching up - your book pages are simply wonderful. I do hope you are getting over your cold by now and that your husband has not caught it. Cheers
