Well this weeks posting does not have a great deal to show for it, but as I am trying to do weekly updates I am still going to post what I have managed to do over the last week.
Saturday and Sunday
On Saturday, my husband, son and I went to see my daughter to make sure she had settled into University ok. Take her out for a meal to make sure she had had one decent feed in a week and also to get her some groceries. Anyway the trip was lovely and she is doing just fine, if partying a little too much, but I am sure once the coursework has started properly that will calm down.
The downside was by the time I got back home over 7 hrs later I had a stonking headache and was therefore unable to stitch. Sunday I wasn't feeling much better so I chose not to stitch. Hence my Argentine Tango and Viennese Waltz are at the same stage they were in my previous post.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
Well to start with I only managed to work on Chrysanthemum Fairy on two of the days and did about 4.5 hrs work on her.
Here she is as of last week
The highlight of my week I finally completed How Does Your Garden Grow by Papillon Creations a lovely speciality stitch sampler. The fabric used was 28ct Monaco in Summer Glade by Enchanted Fabrics. I used all DMC Color Variations and Mill Hill Beads in the multi color pack you can buy.
Below is where I got to last week with this when I was doing as and when I had a spare moment
Last week I started on Welsh Garden by Just a Moment, the third garden in the series.
This is where I got to last week
I also started a knitted garter stitch scarf using the lovely Rico Creative Reflection yarn in pastel. I was originally going to do a lacy stitch wrap, but the yarn is a little fiddly so I decided to go with something a lot simpler. Below is my progress
I also stitched this little heart from Thread Pickerz Silkz using Autumn Equinox silk thread
