I have been a bit computer absent lately – needed a break.
Gone Viral – Now I have your attention – yes it’s official I am an attention seeker – LOL – actually I have had a “bug” lately – saw the Doc and therefore off work for a few days – and like most people I hate being unwell – I have a very Angelic Caring MOTH – as I admit it – I am NOT a good Patient – I don’t mind staying in my PJ’s all day and sleeping. As it was needed – but in between – I get restless – I don’t read much – naturally avoided the sewing machine – couldn’t keep my mind occupied and as a result did a little no think hand sewing. This was easy as if I fell asleep in my chair (which happened several times) – I am now well and back at work – but in the mean time.
Now what I am about to show you – you may say “that’s NO Think hand sewing” but it was – as I had planned this project some time ago – and as you have previously seen a few roses – it was just coming together. One half inch hexagon at a time. Anyway there is still a way to go – but this mini table runner is slowly coming together.
I have also done a little knitting – a pair of slipper socks for my little Sis, who recently commented that she is feeling the cold since starting on Insulin. L’SIS had 2 bouts of gestational diabetes, then after 10 years or so went onto tablets as a type 2 diabetic. Now a few years later it turns out she is a type 1 diabetic – which is apparently more common in adults who have had gestational diabetes. Anyway L’SIS is not into crafts – except for her skill at rocky road making – she makes a scrumptious rocky road Christmas pudding – yes – a diabetic making such a yummy treat – I hear the irony. Anyway I modified a version of my mums little socks – with the assistance of the internet and this is the result. I also added the final touch some of our dear mumma’s rosettes and bows – which are all safe in my stash – as I became keeper of Mums – Roseys Craft Collection.
