In many ways this past week has been a cold cold week. Our weather forecasters correctly predicted a polar blast of ferocious proportions and in this they were correct. Further south of Auckland extreme gale force winds wreaked havoc and snow closed major highways and caused all sorts of grief for farmers. The capital city, Wellington, was isolated at one point as all roads in and out were blocked. Here in Auckland our temperatures dropped and tempers rose: at one time the level of complaints among staff rose to Guinness Record Book heights!
My head cold got worse before it got better. I no longer have a sore throat and runny nose. Just a hacking chesty cough. Thank you all for your kind thoughts.
Manipulating tissues and needles doesn't work so I did more reading than stitching this week. But I did find a wonderful hardanger acorn here. (Have no fear you will manage to decipher the Cyrillic script if you can read hardanger charts.) I raided my stash and have trialled one as a scissor fob.
Hope you all have a warm and uneventful evening.
