Hope you are all keeping well and many of you have had a good Thanksgiving Holiday.
We are all over the bug thank goodness and thank you all for your good wishes. Everything is on track and prepared now for the baby and we are just waiting now and the excitement is building. There have been irksome matters going on in the background this couple of months which came to ahead this week and I will be adding a side note to the bottom of this post and the one other stitching post I’ll make this week. Read if you wish to or do please feel free to gloss over it also.
Knitting wise I finished the dishcloth set I was working on for my Mother. These are the remaining two in her set. I used the pattern Scrubby Dishcloth and I love this pattern. I will be working some of these for my own kitchen I think. I still have a few remaining to catch up on for the year but I’m not going to bad on what was a personal challenge.
This here is the complete set.

I’ve also been working on James Beanie for his Christmas box. The Olympics this past summer inspired his colour choice and can you guess what in particular in those Olympics ? The pattern is Basic Beanie . Today should finish this off as I’m nearly at the decreasing stage and that leaves two remaining beanies which I will hopefully be working on this week. How fantastic to get both of those done this week!
I won’t post how the list is looking again this week as its quite large, i.e. the list lol so I’ll work away on it for another couple of weeks and then post an update on it.
Please gloss over now if you wish:
I set my blog up just over two years ago as a personal way to keep track of my pastimes. I very much enjoy blogging and have only ever set out to use it as a way for me to keep track of projects and events. I love reading my followers comments and enjoy them immensely. I do not expect each and every follower to comment on every post just as I’m sure the majority of blogs I follow don’t expect the same.
You may have noticed I have removed both the email info and the facebook badge link from my blog, both of which I doubt I will replace. I will continue to blog as long as I’m enjoying it. I email people when and if I can. We all know I have a young family with another addition on the way, these are my ONE AND ONLY priority. I do not have extra hours in the day to spend it emailing or blogging constantly and I do recall I said this many times in posts. If I gave my time over to blogging and emailing then I would have no extra time for actually doing the hobbies I like to blog about !!
I do enjoy reading peoples emails and they should feel free to email me but you must accept that I don’t have free time always to answer immediately and I may check my mails once or twice a week if even that ! I will not answer emails that contain rants on Religion, Abortion or any other topic like this, they are a hot bed for trouble. Do not take my silence on these matters as me having the same opinion as yourself, you may be surprised to find out my actual opinion on such things.
Like everybody we all have opinions on things and I respect that, I just don’t hand out my opinion. The one other matter with regarding me is do not email me DEMANDING explanations as to why I’m commenting on some blogs and not on others. I DO NOT offer explanations as to what I do to anyone either.
I’m sorry if this offends anyone, I’m normally a very accepting person of anything and everything and although I may not agree with your point of view I very much accept you are entitled to it but don’t think by my silence I agree, I merely do not wish to discuss it. As I said it has been going on for months and has become irksome now and has come to ahead. I don’t mean to offend anyone but this is how I am and I make NO APOLOGIES FOR HOW I AM. I am in blog land to blog about my favourite pastimes and any spare time I have is spent doing those pastimes, after all if I don’t actually do those pastimes then I have nothing to blog about.
