Soon the teapot will no longer be naked. The inspiration for the wool tea warmer is all Julia Dunnit and Lunch Lady Jan. The purple bit needs another part which has finally motivated me to learn the Magic Cast One (just the thing if one is knitting toe-up socks or other knit at the bottom items).

I'm also doing the Summer of Creative Chemistry with Tim Holtz. The interactive features or Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 were/are reopened. Sadly I couldn't find my binder until 101 was closed, but I'm geared up for 102. So the tags to the right are from that.

Last week I had cataract surgery. I learned I am prone to spontaneous jogging (which I only know now because I'm not allowed to do it and have to wear flip flops as a reminder not to spontaneously jog). I am way more active than I thought. I really suck at giving myself eye drops (for the last week 3 drops 4 times a day 5 minutes apart). My eyelids are very itchy. I wear sports goggles because I can't remember not to touch my itchy eyelids.

Head over to Lunch Lady Jan's blog for a gander at more crafty spaces.

Hi,, I do hope your eyes start to give you some relief. My Mum will be having cataract surgery eventually. Love the colours in the Tea Cosy- thats something I haven't seen in the longest time! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5xxx

I'm flattered to have been the inspiration for that gorgeous purple creation - let's hear it for no more Nakey Teapots - woohoo!
I don't think I've ever spontaneously jogged in my life!! But it must be a pain forcing yourself out of a habit like that. Are your eyelids supposed to be itchy? Have you got a infection? Go and see your doc. I hope the cataract op has helped your vision though.
Hugs, LLJ xxx
