SLOWLY BUT SURELY

 Until recently I didn't realise how important crafty blog land was for me. Without a tablet to pick up and check out all your lovely blogs I have felt quite disconnected from the stitching world. Fortunately, I have been able to access our main computer to catch up but it is not as often as I would like. I have not been stitching much over the past couple of weeks as I had a fall while staying at my youngest daughter's for a few days and have had some nasty internal bruising which made it difficult for me to do much. However, I have completed Munchkin's stitchery which I intend to frame or staple to a canvas.

 
 
I have made a set of 6 coasters to post to my daughter. They are perfect for her décor and also ideal for Halloween. I had intended to make a matching table runner but that is on hold for now.
 
 
A while ago I saw this book , picked it up, and then put it back again deciding I would buy it another time. Not long after that I saw a review on a TV program raving about this very book. The author is another Aussie who is incredibly humble and doubtful about any success but  he is a very talented writer. Needless to say I went out and bought the book. Honestly, it kept me wanting to read more at the end of every chapter.
 
 
 
I am half way through another book so I am quite pleased with myself getting back to reading more like I used to.
 
The weather here is beautiful and sunny one day, rainy and dull the next. Nothing like variety to keep us guessing what wear and when to hang the clothes on the line.
 
I hope you are all well .
 
Angel Blessings.

SEPTEMBER OPAM


 Spring has sprung and I have been enjoying getting out in the sunshine even if it is only to buy groceries. We have been blessed with a couple of beautiful days this mid Spring  as well as not so beautiful days aplenty but I do enjoy the good weather when it decides to appear. However, on those rather bleak days I take the opportunity to sit and stitch or crochet. This means that I have completed a few little projects. 3 of the 4 Christmas decos....


 
2 crocheted dishcloths.
 
 
I have nearly finished reading this book. Yes, it is another Aussie one. I am not really sure what I think of it but it does hold my interest so it can't be too bad.
 
 
I already have my next book lined up.
