What a week

Yes that was the week that was.
Last weekend my husband complained of a sore mouth and throat.
On Sunday I woke to find he looked as if he had had a smack in the face.
Honest  I never touched him.  He had the biggest fat lip you ever did see.
Monday we went to the Dr who diagnosed shingles.
Poor love he is in such a state.  The rash is in his mouth down his throat and now coming out on his face as if he doesn't have enough ill health to put up with.
Finding him things to eat has been the worse part as he cannot chew
and it is painful to swallow.
So this week has not been one for getting much crafting done
and I had a lovely parcel of goodies arrive too
but no time to play much. 
However I have managed this.
Following the sketch on 52 CCT  and using Snowy one of my new Penny black stamps.
I paper pieced his hat and scarf with left overs from the background paper
so he is snug and warm
Haven't any idea what the dotty paper is just a scrap from my box of bits.
The lace is my new crochet border from Memory box.
Am entering this in:
Now I must get back to the patient.
