istitch mystery update

Just a quickie to keep on top of things.

Here is my update of part 3 of the istitch mystery:

Hazel

It was a bit of a pain this bit as when I started to do it, I realised I had made a mistake in part 2 and had to frog!! Just goes to show you should never try and copy from someone's wip as you never know if there are mistakes!!!

I have had a go at the Wiggly crochet I linked to in my last post and I have got it but I need a bigger hook to make the initial chains as it is just a wee bit too tight. Once I work out the right tension, I will do it again and post a pic.

So many new crochet patterns out right now. Suz has got quite a few new ones which I want to try out. I am thinking "bathmat" and "chair cushions". Too many nice things to do.

I went to help out in a Primary School on Tuesday just to get a feel of the classroom environment again. I am secondary trained so Primary was a very different experience. It went well and I am intending on going weekly to read a story to the children. I need to start making some "baby" steps to get back to work as I don't know what the future holds for me just now. All WILL be well though.

I am still plugging away on my HAED Fragile Heart and will have another go at her tonight. I really want to get a decent progress picture up. Next post, promise. xxxxxx

I'm glad you got on okay at school and that you are going back each week. Every journey starts with little steps - I hope it leads somewhere good for you.

Your SAL is looking lovely, Hazel... I'll bet you'll really enjoy reading to the kids. I used to do that when my sons were little and they seemed to really welcome a new face in the classroom :)

So pretty, well done so far!

Heather said...

it's pretty! I really love all your stitching, it's really beautiful. Glad your school visit went well, hopefully doing this and easing back into work will help you feel more empowered again.
oh and I have been thinking that I would like to meet you again and I am having a ponder as to what might be a "workable solution" :-)
