Yesterday I returned to work after my prolonged sick leave! After the hour-thirty on the train and the tram ride up St Kilda Road, I was exhausted by the time I got there!!! I stayed until 3.00 pm or so then left for the long trip home again.
I did knit a little on the way to work – another 3 pattern repeats on my Irish Hiking Scarf but the train was too crowded to do anything on the way home…schoolkids!
Rosemarkie got a little attention on the way to work this morning and I think I can stitch on the way to work and knit on the way home – this should work! Here is the small amount I have achieved since last time I posted a picture. It should grow a bit faster now I am back to work!
Next is Saturday’s progress on Faith Hope Love! This is moving along quite quickly! I am really enjoying this one and it’s such a relaxing project to stitch in front of the telly or when the kids are around!
Unfortunately I didn’t stitch last night on the red piece – I was just too tired. I was tucked up in my little bed very early last night!
Tonight is “Victoria’s Quaker” night and I am feeling not quite as tired as yesterday so I will be able to achieve a little this evening – this is an enjoyable project too
As an aside, I am slowly building my set of Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly – another two ebay issues arrived today and I think that I only have about 7 issues to go now to have the complete set.
One of the issues I received today has the first part of a sampler I dearly want to do! It’s Sharon Cohen’s Millenium cutwork sampler! If you’re perhaps interested in doing a very leisurely stitch along on this project – leave me a comment! I wont be able to start till the new year perhaps so you have a while to think about it. I thought abotu writing to Sharon to see if she could provide a chart for the number 7 or 8 or 9 (depending on when I finish it LOL)..I’ll let you know how it goes!
Now, it’s off to spend some time with Victoria!
