The 29th of January.
Finally I had a good night. Let’s hope it continues.
This morning, I did a blog post, then got back to work on Anton the angel. His hair took pretty much until lunchtime as it involves tiny complicated stitches. Glad that’s over.
I also rang Piccadilly to book an eye test because they sent me a reminder last week. I went to the last one and she basically couldn’t read my results because the GvHD had made my vision really inconsistent, but I think it might be stable enough now for us to try again, so that’s Thursday.
After lunch, my Little Prince soundtrack was delivered (nobody bought it for my birthday or Christmas so I had to treat myself) – I had to buy the CD because the music is not digitally available anywhere! Now I have to do something I haven’t done for years and rip a CD. I bet the youth wouldn’t know what that means. Then I made the halo, wings and arms of Anton, and put him together. Three down, three to go.
The 30th of January.
I have been awake since quarter past four. Not thrilled. I don’t know why – just woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. Now my brain is all itchy and I’m looking forward to bedtime.
I have at least been productive. My crochet magazines have come back out of hiding after Christmas and I decided it was time to digitally catalogue the patterns I wanted to keep in PDF form. I’ve been able to get rid of all my TOFT magazines, which took a couple of hours and about 30% of my phone battery. I’ll have to do a few of these sessions to get through them all.
I then got started on Woody the pine cone, and worked on him until lunchtime. I also had a delivery of a yarn swift, which is like an umbrella you can stretch a hank of wool around and it holds it taut while I use the other thing I ordered, a yarn ball winder to make it into a ball! It is so satisfying and much quicker than my previous method, which involved chairs and tables which didn’t stay still and took hours. I did five balls today in the time it took me to do one before. It was still tiring though – my heart rate went to to 135 winding the spool.
After that, I ripped The Little Prince CD to my iMac, then I made a coffee and returned to Woody while watching Blindspot. It seems somewhat nonsensical so far.
