Tuesday is SAL with Gillie
Nature Alphabet had J for juniper added. A very simple square this time although I stitched mine on Thursday instead of Tuesday as I had an appointment with a bedtime story and a little lady on Tuesday.
It gets even nicer with each letter added. Each little square is like a mini finish in itself.
Wednesday is another SAL night with Barb and the ladies at NH.
Santa Village is my project for this year. Cottage number 8 is Candy Cane Cottage. This week the roof had its repairs finished (now that I found the thread that was hiding in the safe place - we all have one and its so elusive sometimes!) and we also had a little snowfall.
Weekend UFO SAL
Irish Garden is my only UFO project. Jo pointed out, it can't be a UFO as you're now working on it, so it makes it a WIP ..... I guess she's right lol.
Lots done this week, as hubby was watching something on the TV all afternoon Sunday that I had no interest in at all, so I was able to count and concentrate on the little fiddly half and quarter stitches and complete the top right quarter flower border and get the trellis panels added too. Two sessions this weekend instead of one, can't be bad, I must have been enjoying it.
Growing well, although there is no chance that it will be finished for this St Patrick's Day! There are still two more rows of outer border flower beds to add even when I've completed the centre panels. Perhaps it will be finished for next years celebrations.
A little knitting finish too. An aran cardigan for my granddaughter Isabelle. The yoke is knitted separately and you add it on afterwards. Quite an easy pattern really, but very effective.
I've been curled up in my chair with a good book this past week. Have you read this one? The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society What a title, try and remember that to tell someone else!
The book description reads ...
It's 1946 and author Juliet Ashton can't think what to write next. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey - by chance, he's acquired a book that once belonged to her - and, spurred on by their mutual love of reading, they begin a correspondence. When Dawsey reveals that he is a member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, her curiosity is piqued and it's not long before she begins to hear from other members. As letters fly back and forth with stories of life in Guernsey under the German Occupation, Juliet soon realizes that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name.
It was a lovely read and thoroughly enjoyable. My copy has now been passed on to one of my Book Borrowers. It was taken from me on Thursday at a crafting group as the lady in question couldn't wait till tomorrows meeting to start it. It's an older book being published in 2008 with a very sad tale about the author and her passing away before it was published to the wider world.
Thanks Gillie for the recommendation, I loved it.
Have a lovely week everyone whatever plans you have for it.
