More hexies

Here's what I'm working on at the moment - a knitting bag from the Cath Kidston book 'Sew'.  All the hexies are cut from remnants of vintage fabrics.  Some really 'groovy' patterns happening here!

Winter's arrived, which I'm glad about, but not so much the side effect of sinus problems.  It's making me decidedly grumpy, a problem made to look worse by the fact I have to squint when looking at people because my poor head hurts :(  Someone told me I have to give up dairy products as they exacerbate sinus issues, but that would mean giving up cheese and yogurt and I don't know if I can do that.  So I'll just have to stay looking grumpy for a while longer until the pain gets bad enough that I think the sacrifice is worth it!  Does anyone out there have any remedies for relieving sinus pain? 

I'll keep on sewing the hexies, pretty sure they can make anything feel better ...

You could try a Neti Pot, a little pot with a spout that you wash your sinuses with, keeps them unblocked. It takes a bit of practise to tip your head just right and not end up with salty water down your front, but well worth it. I haven't had sinus problems since getting one...years now. You can usually get them at health food stores
