I've had problems with my sinuses for years. My doctor, after many prescriptions for antibiotics that didn't help, sent me to a specialist. This past Monday I had some surgery inside my nose. I've been spending the rest of this week healing up. It's a strange feeling - inside my face feels swollen and tingly but nothing shows on the outside. I couldn't bend over for a couple of days or even move too fast. I was prescribed some pain medicine but haven't really needed much of it - I've had better results with an icy cold washcloth across my face. Today, so far, I'm feeling pretty good. I can breathe through my nose and nothing hurts more than mild discomfort. Yay! I've been keeping myself a bit busy making things, though. Last week I got out a few of the crochet booklets that were my great-grandma's and great-aunt's and have been making doilies. Some of them will be finished like this:

but I've been thinking about clothes, too, like these that I found on Pinterest:

I've seen so many variations of these ideas and I'd really love to try it. It also gives me something to do with the doilies that I enjoy making. Do you guys see many crocheted things when you're out thrifting?

Hope the operation helps with your sinus trouble - sinus pain is the pits!
Such petty crochet. xxx

Hi Bobbi! Thanks for your comment! All these are lovely- I wish I could crochet- my Mum does it but I just can't do any sort of handicrafts like this!x

Hi, Bobbi! I just wanted to let you know you won those purple stars. I'm going into town on Monday to brave the holiday shopping crowds **shudders** so if you can send me your mailing address before then, I can get them shipped off to you! Not that they'll arrive in time for Christmas or anything. :)

I never find any good doilies at the thrift stores anymore. Everybody seems to be snapping them up for crafts and clothing these days. And I can't crochet myself, although I keep threatening to learn. But I threaten to do a lot of things. LOL
