To the Lake District!

Screen shot 2013-03-20 at 10.13.29 AMSee you later, suckers! Me and my never-ending cold and low-level exhaustion are getting out of town for the next few days. Yeah, it’s March, so it probably won’t look like this photo that I stole from the internet. Yeah, I probably have a fever. And yeah, ok, there is snow in the forecast. But I don’t care. I am going for a a walk in the hills if I have to tie three hot water bottles to myself and crawl on my hands and knees. Back on Monday just in time to teach a two-day long and link stitch course in London at the LCBA. I love the long and link stitch, by the way. Here are a few of them of adorable size, all stacked up:

During the writing of this post, I have coughed approximately 716 times.

To the Lake District! But maybe first to the pharmacy.

    That lake should cure all ills. I hope to see it in person some day.
