.... this month is whizzing by faster than ever don't you think?
Three ladies at the stitching club have birthdays this month. As regular readers of my blog know, i always give them a jar of my homemade marmalade and also a small stitched gift. This year i decided their little gift would be a covered tape measure. I know they don't have one of these and added their initial so no squabbling over who has whose on a Wednesday evening.
Grand Marquoir has been out this week, another 3 motifs added, soooo close to a finish with this now.
I've ordered the fabric to start the year long 2011 SAL of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow which will replace GM in my workbox and am waiting for it to arrive and my round robin is also planned out on paper. I just need to grid the fabric and add my part before i send it on to the next person at the end of the month.
This afternoon DD is off to the hospital for another scan. She'll be phoning me after to let me know the sex of the baby. She has been quite poorly recently and after a visit to the dr was admitted to hospital on Wednesday evening. They checked her out and she was ordered home to rest and await the results of the tests they did and what medication she can have that is both safe for her and the baby as she is allergic to certain antibiotics.
I forgot to show you these little bootees that i knitted and added to her Christmas stocking for baby when i showed the Christmas goodies i made.
Cathey has been in touch with her address after winning the blogoversary. I asked if she would like a surprise stitched item or a knitted bunny. Bunny it was, so i'm still "giving birth" to them in 2011 LOL
I hope 2011 has started well for you and life is happy in your part of the world
