This month I worked on Avarice and on Wiz. I said I wouldn't work on Avarice but having had computer troubles and unable to access my Wiz pattern Avarice got a rotation in. I am working it when I start to run out of steam too. Staves off the block.
So here is Avarice.
A good halfway through page 7. Still confetti heavy although the gems are getting smaller. The right hand side is black block work with confetti inbetween and the left is the border and gems. Again I switch from one to the other to stave off the block. That's why 2 needles threaded up in my work.
And a pic of Wiz progress
Dosen't look hugely different - I guess that's cos I am working this cross country. Having said that there are at least 3 complete 10 x 10 stitches squares on there and a few that are a couple of stitches from completion. I have more thread to buy to complete this and the next job is work out what exactly I need.
In other news: Check out this bad boy!
2100 metres of 310 loveliness. I am getting ready to start Firefly - well.. itching to start it! And I wanted the 310 to be the same lot number all the way through. The answer was buy a cone.... Oh dear.... I think I might have to get some blackwork charts... or even design some....
And so to the family:
Lauren is now fully recovered. No further problems from her pneumonia. Hannah the eldest, on the other hand, has fallen off her scooter and broken her collarbone! Geez if it weren't for bad luck we would have no luck at all! Fortunately she didn't need a surgical fix.. a sling and rest should sort it. If only she would rest it!
Victoria (the middle one) is walking around proudly telling people there's nothing wrong with her and she has never been in hospital! Don't tempt fate love....
We are preparing as a family too to go to my Mum In Law's house at the end of the month. Its her birthday and wedding anniversary and there is a bit of a surprise gathering for her (sshhh! Don't tell her!!) so I am busy looking at dresses online and choosing which one!
Phew! That was a long post in the end!
