Things in my workbox #3

I'm doing my best to try and "switch off" from work this week so I can concentrate on getting well. Anyone who is self-employed will know how hard this can be, as there are always so many tasks shouting for your attention and so many creative projects which you're itching to get started.

I'm keeping my laptop switched off as much as possible and have packed all my work stuff away... but I can't stop myself wanting to make stuff! My name is Laura, and I'm a craft addict. Ha ha.

My whole business developed from all the sewing I did to keep myself entertained while I was ill and stuck watching rubbish TV for days on end and I always have a stash of nice simple crafty tasks which I can do (slowly!) when I'm feeling under the weather.

Today's bit of convalescent crafting? Starting to sew beads on the felt necklaces sitting in my workbox...

Bugger your still under the weather :( It's been cloudy here for nearly the entire month and I'd really like some sun and fresh air.
Winter's overrated, hope you can get some sun on your face soon :)

Hi! I recently discovered your blog and your lovely work and have been really enjoying following your posts.
I was just stopping by tonight to let you know that I have given you a sunshine award but, alas, Kate above has beaten me to it! :)
Now you have two awards, and I got an excuse to say hello!
