Trying to sew with a cold/flu is a bad idea

What a waste of time! I have a very heavy cold/flu at the moment, and today I tried to do some catch-up work on the UnFinished Object pile. Great plan, points for motivation, but the execution just didn't work out. Firstly, I tried some unpicking and ended up repeatedly putting the unpicker through the fabric. Next, I tried to sew a lining for a pillbox style Italian hat that I never wear because it is unlined. After two tries, it was a disaster, so I glued felt inside like a bit cheater. Well, that was a disaster too, so I ripped it all out and gave up on the crafting. Some days you just don't know when you're beat!
