Heya! Things are progressing. I am healing better than the doctor’s expected but not as fast as I want. I know things take time but I want to go out of the house now please! I have gone to have the staples all removed and there is only one spot that is healing oddly but I have been babying it and keeping it taped. This appears to have it healing perfectly as of today. Yays!!! As for the viral pneumonia, little improvements are noticed daily. I am breathing just a little easier today as well. :::smile:::
I have been taking time to do some non-commission crochet on a very small level. Something very seasonal and fun… Crochet Heart Hangings! I found the original pattern over at Jacqueline’s blog – BunnyMummy and tweaked it slightly. I plan on adding this heart sachet by Picot to Petals blog and this heart from My Merry Messy Life blog to hang off the bottom. I love that the last two patterns were found on Ravelry… it totally rocks and the people who share their designs rock it! I am trying to make them as little gifts for those near and dear to me. Little “I love you’s” since our money is impossibly tight this year with me being off work for the last month.
I also had the fun of visiting with a dear friend who I have been showing how to crochet here and there. It is fun to spend time with her and show her something new every know and then. Well, it is fun to spend time with her period, She is a positive person who always makes me smile and…. she was my first visitor in weeks! Which is a win for us both.
Yesterday was learning to decrease stitches and her very first amigurumi ever! She had a ton of fun and I think will be exploring giraffe’s soon.
So cute! Don’t you think? And she was stash busting!
Also, a confession. This morning I was missing my sister terribly and decided to pull out that old dish cloth knitting I had started so long ago and give it a row. I felt like I was trying to learn to knit left handed on a moving boat during choppy waters. I am a right hander and I get motion sick very easily. I drive because it is so bad. After minutes of a furrowed brow, tongue biting concentration I did manage a whole row but oye! I was so frustrated that I had to pick up the mindless crochet wash clothes I had started at the same time but sat down for grander things and totally forgot till I dug out the knitting cone. They are both cones of cotton. I had big plans years ago. But most of all, at that moment, I had to feel like I still knew what to do with my hands! I am convicted to learn to knit this way. Therefore, I will pick up and knit a little each month this year… yup. I will succeed!
So, what have you been up to? What knits/crochet are you working on? How is life treating you and yours?
