SAL Catch Up

Evening bloggers,

Its past my normal time but Elizabeth very kindly shared her cold with some of the children and myself so we have been resting lots as we just don’t have energy for much. Luckily that means they’ll sit with me while we rest and I’ve been able to get some knitting done. I’ve been sat beside my fire for most of the day apart from necessary jobs.

Before all energy disappears I thought I’d catch up with my SAL’s for the week.

Monday is the CCN cottage series. Here is where I stand now on January cottage and as the weeks go by and I become more accustomed to the 40ct I’m beginning to enjoy it. I’m sure by the time I’ve all 12 cottages done I’ll be used to it lol. I am enjoying the fine look of the stitching on the 40ct.

Tuesdays is the turn of Elizabeth Hancock Sampler by LHN. I’m nearly finished the green of the border across the top on the first page so some progress is being made.

Wednesdays is PS ABC’s. In answer to Linda’s question last week these I am stitching individually on 32ct lambswool and the intention is to frame individually in the same kinds of frames and hang beside each other. Hopefully that vision in my head is what I will end up with.

Thursdays is the turn of Robin Hood which I’m stitching along with Linda over at Stitchin with my Furbabies . This I’m stitching on 28ct light mocha.

Not bad progress looking back over the week considering one or more of the children had a cold or a bug in that time, of course a night of total insomnia helped as I was up at 4am and whats a girl to do only haul out the stitching lol.

Now I’m going back to my fire and my stitching and that will be the extent of the weekends work I fear, well perhaps I’ll get up for some chocolate as chocolate makes everything better including colds 😉 and tea lots and lots of cups of tea I think will help also.

I should be back on Sunday with my YOP post but if I’m not you’ll find me here beside my fire 🙂

Happy stitching,

    Hope you feel better soon (though all that atitching time by the fireside isn't a horrible trade, as long as you don't get to feeling worse. lol!)
