Get down with da sickness

For the past few days I have been so far under the weather that I might just be in another hemisphere right now. Wait...I don't even know if that makes sense. Ugh. Due to the sickness I have not been knitting at all. I'm hoping to get a bunch done this weekend to make up for lost time and have dedicated the entire day of Saturday to "project" time. Geesh, I remember when I used to look forward to clubbing or such on weekends and now it's knitting. OMG I AM getting old!!

In good news: On Monday (when I still felt human) I went to the JoAnn's right near my apartment. They lost their lease so EVERYTHING in the store is at least 40% off. I got a ton (not a metric ton...but close) of felt-able wool yarn for 60% off. It was so awesome! While there I found these cute little glass votive candle holders that were normally 12 for $7 but they were 40% off of that so I grabbed them thinking that I'll do something with them....not sure what. Well, here is what I've done with two of them:

I pulled out some of my old polymer clay supplies and viola...bizarro votives! (Yes, I do realize that "votives" is not actually a word.) It's been a long time since I played with the clay so I wouldn't classify these as a fantastic effort but they could be worse. I'll probably do some more when I feel better and see if those are an improvement over these.
Okay...I'm off to go drink some hot tea and watch my cats chase each other around.
Anyone who has an opinion of my votives or anything else...feel free to leave comments.
