Thank you so much for all the kind comments and emails you have sent me during this last week. They have been very much appreciated. There has been a little breakthrough this week although I don't feel we are quite out of the woods yet. Faith and patience is the key. And lots and lots of prayer. Thank you to those who are agreeing with me in prayer for this situation to turn around. I really trust and believe it will.
Anyway. Onto a more cheery post of some productive finishes I have this week.
First up is part 7 of the istitch mystery. I can't believe I have kept up with this one. I really do think I am better with a bit of a push and a shove and a kick up the behind in order to get me to do things. It appears the whole, "finish the part then you will get the next part" appears to have worked for me. Only one more part to go and then I will be looking into finishing it into something.
I also made The Sampler Girl ornie into an ornie today. Just another simple cushion finish backed by red fabric with holly on it. I'll have a few of these to go on my tree this year. I think I may need to get a bigger stitching tree.
I took a break from crochet and knitted up some wrist warmers for DD which I had had the wool for for quite some time. I used Sirdar Crofter which knits up like Fair Isle but without all the hassle. I am quite pleased with them although I did make a mistake but made the other one the same so it matched. It is all that business about ending on a right side row stuff. Pah! I am sure it must have been a man that made these patterns.
Finally, I have made a bit more progress on Part 2 of Sampler Aux Bouquets. I am really loving this but dreading when I get to the end of this piece as I have not yet ordered part 3 as I have no printer at the moment and I have been getting them in PDF format. Anyway, here she is..
And lastly, browsing Tabiboo's blog, I came across this post on scent and I have been wanting to get one of these tart burners for some time now. I have bought them as gifts for friends and sisters but never one for myself. I think I was secretly hoping someone would buy me one but no luck so I finally ordered one for myself and it is lovely! I bought this Autumn hand painted one to go in my red autumnal room. It matches perfectly and lets out the sweetest smell. I bought a pack of Christmas scents but want to get a set of the kitchen ones now. A lot of money but I am so happy with it and I felt I did really deserve a treat, you know.
So that's all from me for a while. My hand really hurts. I think I have torn a ligament in it and find it hard to pick anything up - even light things. It even hurts to type! So I am off to rest it. See you in a little while.
