Not rocket science...

My day started this morning with this little box of tricks...


It's a test for H-pylori bacteria which we are hoping is the cause of my horrible chest pain, time, well about a fortnight, will tell.

The rain and hail, with an interlude of work, a Post Office trip, to send my tubes of breath to hospital, made up most of my day.

No sewing to show (too late, too dark), but from my stock of sunny-day photos from the weekend, here's another tick off my FAL list...


AMH voile and charcoal Sketch flannel, the perfect combo, an obvious choice.

I love my voile and velveteen scarf, but it is big;  the flannel in this one gives that extra warmth but less of the bulk, and it has already been much used and needed so far this week, and by the looks and sound of it, the need will be even greater over the coming stormy days.

So wrap up warm,  keep safe and dry, and I'll see you on the 'morrow xxx

  9. Is that the same as helio bacter? (maybe a colloquial pronunciation)? Good luck with that. Your infinity scarf looks greats, just the thing for the storms at the minute

  23. I have/had h-pylori and it is so painful. I was told the only true test is an upper GI so they can look and sample the lining in your stomach. The treatment is worse than the illness, massive doses of antibiotics. If you do have it look into alternative treatment. Fingers crossed you don't have it.

  24. I hope the results get back soon. Love the happy scarf x
