Granny Tissue Box Cover

Granny Tissue Box Cover
Tutorial very soon...

I really thought this would be easy...
But really it took 10 goes to get this right...

I really did need the tissues after I had finished...

And of course it wouldn't be complete without 
a poem ...

Mr Lurgy no more...

Achoo, Achoo I think I have the flu,
my chest is tight and my head hurts too.

These wheezes and sneezes are hitting to the core,
and I do believe I can’t take it anymore.

For all this sickness is getting me down,
and I need some peace, so I crochet some rounds.

A sip of tea and a squeeze of lemon,
with inspiration at hand I am now in heaven.

Mr Lurgy looks on in fearful fright,
as I sit and hook with all my might.

For I hold the cure to send him away,
in all its goodness and granny loving ways.

Spoonfuls of love in just the right dose,
comforting memories that I hold so close.

Hooroo, Hooroo I will glimpse him no more,
sending him packing and dashing out the door.
