A quick-ish blog post today just to show what I've been up to this weekend. Saturday afternoon I made the effort to finish up The Drawn Thread A Spot of Winter. The final one and another mattress pin keep to match the other three seasons. I'm really pleased with this and my DH even asked, when I'd got everything put away, what I'd been making. As I had been rather upset with myself maybe I should cry more often as he doesn't usually ask! I didn't have enough interfacing to back the fabric pieces with so it's not as solid as the others.
I made a start on my next BBD AotH block on Friday evening and here's my progress for the two evenings I stitched on it. I really like this block and this one will be personalised for my DH and I. Again I'm using GAST and DMC. I seem to have got a good bit stitched this time and that is what staying off the PC does for you.
I was planning a stitchy afternoon yesterday but it didn't happen. It was such a nice afternoon that we decided to go for a walk instead but I did stitch after tea. I should really start another SB ornament. I have the threads sorted and just need to cut some fabric but I really wanted to stitch on Silver Creek Samplers Dandy Dreams so I did. I have the verse stitched and some of the "clocks". I did seem to be a little distracted on this once Hawaii Five- 0 came on at 9pm! I hope to finish this in the next couple of weeks so watch this space as I'll be passing on the chart:)
Tonight is my SAL night with Barb and Colleen and I'm looking forward to settling down after tea with Emmanuel's Song and getting some progress in on it.
I'm hoping to start my other SAL's soon with Lisa (AND) and Chris ( The Sanctuary). They are both such lovely pieces and as I am taking one day at a time at the moment A New Day is very apt for me. Not long to go now to my first counselling session so, hopefully, I can start my journey to feeling "well" again.
Well I am going to get myself sorted and get on the Wii Fit for a bit. A little bit of exercise always seems to boost me a little until the board weighs me that is!
Take care everyone and have a wonderful week.
Thank you for visiting me and for all your lovely comments. It means the world to me to know that you are reading and enjoying my ramblings and stitching :) I will get caught on blog reading tomorrow as for today that is me done.
