6th October 2010

Edit - Pip has now been sold - thank you Katherine



So, Monday morning I drag myself out of bed after spending half of the night in the bathroom !! Get myself and the boys dressed and head off to school.



As we enter the classroom Mrs K takes one look at me and says " go home " ,,,, I did.



So for the past couple of days I've relaxed and done as little as possible , apart from make this little Pip for a customer . Well, I did once the dizziness and queasiness had passed.



I've still got sniffles and a bit of a cough but feel loads better now and will be going back to school tomorrow . I felt awful that I've just started and already I'm on the sick so to speak...



I showed Pip to the customer today and ........ she doesn't like him " not the right colour grey and not cute enough "



Not cute enough ........... just look at that face !!

Hope you continue to get better and try not to feel bad about it - you really can't help being ill.

There's no accounting for taste. I can just about understand how you might prefer a different colour but I really don't see how that little mouse could be any cuter. Some people?! Juliex

Sorry to hear you've been unwell. :( That's no good at all. Hope the boys don't get anything. What?? Not quiet grey enough?? Okay! Takes all types I guess!! I was thrilled with what you made us!

Poor you, I hope you feel better soon. I can NOT believe your customer didn't like Pip, he's just adorable... how fussy can you get, not the right shade of gray?!!! I don't think I'd want to knit for someone so fussy!

Mia said...

I hope you're feeling much better already!

Happy thoughts from Finland!

Yours,
