Thanks for your lovely comments on my last blog post. I am one of those bloggers who keeps meaning to sit down to post and never seems to find the time to do it.
Spring has finally arrived here in Scotland, we’re always several weeks behind the south of England. Our magnolias are getting there – one stellata is out and another is just about to blossom but one of our bigger types isn’t nearly ready to open out yet.
Don’t fall over when I say that I have actually picked up stitching again. I started a couple of small designs but they weren’t inspiring me so I switched back to a design I started a while back. I’ve not made a lot of progress but I’m trying to take it easy.
I’ve also continued on with my knitting and this time round tried a new pattern that was fun to knit but I don’t think I would repeat it. I enjoy knitting some toy patterns over and over but this wasn’t one of them. The same designer has a turtle pattern that I think is really cute so I’m going to work on that shortly.
I bought the pattern from The Twins knitting shop via Ravelry – they have a lovely selection of toy patterns to choose from. I can’t decide on a name for this little one.
Recently Brigitte from At Brigitte’s Place was really kind and sent me a lovely surprise package – she had the delightful contents wrapped inside the fabric you can see in the photo.
Thank you again Brigitte……………
I know it’s a little while since the needlework market but I thought I’d show a small kit that I bought (I did buy quite a few other things too) as I’ve not really seen it pop up in many places.
I’ve not started it yet but the design idea appealed to me.
Thanks to all of you who have sent such good thoughts and prayers to me for my husband – we both really appreciate it. The whole process is very much a roller coaster ride for us and people’s kind words and thoughts along the way make a huge difference.
Since my last blog entry I have also been in hospital having a repeat procedure done. I’m now back at work and it’s good to get back into a routine again.
I’ll leave you today with a photo of the “girls”. Poppy is such a lady and Rosa is such a free spirit:-)
I hope the sun is shining on you today, thanks for stopping by.
