Battling On…


I’m still struggling with my health, which has curtailed most activities.  I have to snatch what few opportunities present themselves, and with so many projects on the go, it can be difficult to choose.  I’ve not gotten even close to finishing any of the knitting projects lately, but I have just finished a piece of cross stitch.  Actually, it was something I did because I felt like it and had no purpose beyond that.  However, a wonderful lady who Jenny knows keeps giving me gifts through Jenny, as a sign of support and understanding for my condition.  I feel both very touched and very guilty.  The lady isn’t young and money must be tight for her, and yet she is so generous!  I’ve had no idea of how I could possibly respond, until last night.  It came to me that she might like the little cross stitch that had no purpose.  So, this morning, I simply added the word “Thanks” to it:

Cottage Garden Thank-you

Jenny’s going to make a card to mount it in for me, as she’s far better at that than I am!

The Scarf…


I’ve now got a photo of the feather and fan lace scarf mentioned in my last post.  I’m happy to report that it was very well received

Makes a nice stole too!

 

New Free Pattern


I’ve just released a new free pattern, for a feather and fan lace scarf, which can be found on the Free Patterns page.  This makes a luxurious, soft, but light, scarf.  I have completed one myself, though I modified it by including a personalised section spelling out the recipient’s name, using the stitch pattern technique found in pictorial dish cloths.  Unfortunately, I don’t currently have any photos of the finished scarf.
