Busy times here with family birthdays and the horticultural show coming up but there have been some quiet stitching, knitting and reading times enjoyed in the warmth of the sun in the garden enjoying the flowers and watching the birdlife come and go on the feeders.
The little pink cardigan in my last post was sewed together and finished. I'll add it to our box on Friday.
and the lovely Sublime Merino Silk that Ann sent in her delightful parcel (you can see that in the post below if you haven't already) has hopped onto my new knit pro needles to start another cardigan the same.
Friday we had a visitor to the charity knitting group who came along to collect some of the items we have been making. She was delighted with what the group has been doing and very impressed. We have ladies who cannot make the group but knit and drop off things for our box each week. Knitters are so generous with their time and efforts.
Here's some of what we had collected together -
Just a few little x's into Peace last week. I was late sitting down, so not quite a finish. Still need to add the flowers inside the other 3 border sides tomorrow evening in the SAL.
I've also been working on an ornament exchange from the meet up we had at the end of May. Opening day for that is 31st August. It's almost finished and will be ready to send off on time, but no pics to share of it till after then when I can also share what was made for me as well.
No knitting group this Friday, I'm taking part in a painting workshop using the Bob Ross method. A sea scene is the theme.
Remember this that the teacher came to give us a demonstration of a few weeks back?
I'm really looking forward to having a go. Next time I might share my efforts if it turns out ok. It'll be a bit of fun and trying something new if nothing else!
I hope all is well with you and yours and send blessings to you all.
Have a lovely week
