For about a week now I’ve been under the weather. I gave in and went to the doctor on Tuesday, and he confirmed what I already knew. I was sick. The sinus infection he diagnosed was no surprise, but bronchitis was. I guess it was good I went. My energy level has been non-existent so I’ve spent a good bit of time doing things I could do quietly and mostly at rest. I thought I’d share…
In November or early December Carole from Madness and Mess invited stitchers around blogland to take part in a wee stitchery quilt she will eventually put together. I’m bringing up the rear getting mine back to her, because the days leading up to death of my father and his passing away threw me way off kilter. I completed my contribution this evening and will send it on its way to New Zealand tomorrow. It is stitched on a piece of what looks to be unbleached muslin about five inches square. It truly is a wee stitchery.
My sister’s first grandbaby was born today. He weighed in at 9 pounds 15 ounces and 22 inches long. He’s a fine looking little guy. Sadly he’s in Georgia and we’re in Mississippi, so it will be a while before I can get my hands on him. As a welcome gift to him I made several burp cloths using the pre-fold diaper method.
I’ve been practicing what I’ve learned about knitting and am very comfortable with knitting, purling and binding off. I made a scarf out of some very forgiving homespun yarn and for some reason it curls from both sides to the center. I don’t know why or what to do to prevent it or correct it. Here’s the piece I am working on now. I’m not sure if it will be a scarf or rewound into a ball when I am finished.
That about does it.
Until next time…
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
