I have learned some very important lessons this year. I can’t wait to share them with you! Be grateful for EVERY health moment you have 2. Friends will come and go. 3. Do what’s best for you. 4. People make mistakes. 5. Don’t get hung up on the little things 6. People are immature at…
I’m down to 5% battery so let’s make this quick.
The bathroom is clean & clear of all the debris. 840kg worth, people. My wrist & shoulders hurt. Simon started nailing down the new tile slate tonight. With “help”.
I managed to get a decent hour or two in Fairy Idyll after everyone else went to bed. Hooray! That’s another 250+ stitches in this weekend.
Hope your weekend was as productive!
And again not a lot going on. This is what happens when you have 5 hours sleep, right?
4 threads on Jamaica Santa; one on Fairy Idyll. And demo started on the kids bathroom.
Not much going on tonight. We went to the electronics sale (I updated my tracker, Lou got a new tablet, we got a Wi-Fi extender & stocked up on headphones, as the boys seem to eat the things). I worked a little on Jamaica Santa by Sandra Cozzolino for Mill Hill. Maybe 60 stitches?
So no true WIP Wednesday post today & probably not for the rest of October. I’m just planning to stay on track with the #craft31days prompt.
So far I love how much progress I am getting in on Fairy Idyll. This is an older (1996!) Mira that I’ve wanted to do for ages, which is adding to my momentum & work ethic.
Tonight I took The Screaming Teen into his pt session in town. That’s an hour of sitting around; I watched some netflix (the Gaga doc) & stitched, as I’d remembered that but not my hoodie. Doh.
So today maybe 180 stitches plus a bit of BS. I’m trying to do that as I go.
Tomorrow morning my wrist is being scanned, as its not healing fast enough. 8 weeks & I still get pain when I hold something & use force, like a door handle or can opener. It’s frustrating. Hopefully it’s nothing broken.
I was pretty lazy around the house tonight. Dinner, washing, not a lot else. Some reading, some playing, some mediating. As you do with three boys in the house!
Anyway, lots more again on Fairy Idyll. Another 450+ stitches. The gold/green drape is nearly complete to the point I’ll flip this 180 & work on the post.
And yeah. That frog visited a few times. Blast.
This afternoon was wet and wild again – spring has come in like a lion! My lettuce seedlings had only been in the raised bed for a week & now they’re all scrunched up in one corner. I think I’ll be buying more this weekend 🥕 the carrot & 🥒 cucumber seedlings were still in the tray on the kitchen windowsill, so they aren’t a write-off.
I mucked around with the kids for a bit then settled in. With mum coming home to a clean kitchen & clean bedrooms comes great reward… no time limit on the wii! I grabbed a notebook as I really want to record my progress on Fairy Idyll. I’m conscious this chart is a loan, & I want to get it back to Gail as soon as I can.
So. 18 thread lengths & as I average 25-27 stitches with DMC, that’s a massive 450-486 stitches tonight. And I cooked dinner, folded washing, hung another load on the rack… really happy with the progress but I know not every night will be like this.
