Glass Bowl, a Rainbow Shawl and a Rotten Cold

Last weekend on our visit to Dorset I bought a lovely little green glass dish, its quite an unusual shape. Does anyone know what it was originally used for please? on Monday Evening I started a cold - not that unusual, except Tuesday morning I felt so rotten I couldn't get out of bed. I had all the usual symptoms of temperature, sore throat, streaming cold, aches and pains but I also felt as though my legs wouldn't hold me up and I lost my appetite. I spent some time knitting which has speeded up progress on my shawl wonderfully. I am up to row 87. I have also slept quite a bit, and yesterday I made a Bounding Bunnypin which Jenny had designed. Sadly I managed to mess up one ear but Em thought he was cute, so instead of throwing him away I stitched a safety pin to the back and she pinned him to her Ikea heart cushion. Hopefully I have turned the corner now and life will resume its normal pace soon. Happy Weekend and Happy Mothers Day for Sunday to all Mums around the British Isles. Jane x

I hope you're feeling better! I wish I could make you some pie!

The bunny is really cute! I don't know for sure about the little green dish but it might have been used for gravy or candy. I would use it for candy or for a side dish like a sauce or jelly.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

Get well soon. I love the dish, but can't help with its original usage.

I just found your blog. So jealous that you were in Dorset, I spent much of my childhood there at my Granny's. Love that bunny pin you made and I adore the bears in your avater. Beary Hugs, Catherine and my Bumpkin Bears x

The Bounding Bunnypin is so sweet and in one of my favourite colours too. I think maybe your glass dish is a flower bowl which may have originally had what was called a 'frog', which would have held the flowers in place - look up Davidson glass. I hope you have thrown off that horrible cold bug by now. x
