Thank you for your kind comments in my last post. You are all so very kind. The cancer is active again but I knew that. A day at a time. It's all anyone can do.
I was going to change my blog background but snow is very appropriate. Ireland has been 'closed' for business from 4pm on the 1st of March and won't be opening until Saturday.
We have had lots and lots of snow so everything is closed; there's no planes, no trains, no busses, no shops, no hospital appointments.
We have closed down big time.
Only we didn't get any snow at all; it seems to have missed my village which isn't such a bad thing.
We prepared for it; bought a loaf of bread; bought a bottle of wine; bought coal and hunkered down. We didn't get snow but we did get cold; very, very cold.
So what do you do when the weather is pants?
You start a new craft. I found acrylic pouring! It's art meets science!
This is my first attempt. I'm more than happy with it.
I'll be trying another type of pouring tomorrow.
I haven't done any stitching this week but I did manage to crochet a simple baby blanket.
I held a crochet class at a local cancer support centre and made some examples to show the ladies what they would be making.
The Granny Square was for the second week and for the first, I made a facecloth, a coaster and a bookmark. The attendees got to choose what they would like to make.
I used the grey to leave the women the prettier colours of the cotton yarn that I used but since my bathroom has grey and chrome, it will fit in well!
The baby blanket is in pink and white. I've got so much baby wool, I decided to make baby blanket for future grandchildren. Life hey? Scary.
The third in my Everygreen Angels is about to be released. Everygreen Holly!
I had a lovely lady from Norwich, Jo, model stitch for me but it seems my designs are just meant to be photograph unfriendly!
I will leave you know and hopefully do some stitching. Thank you for sticking by my irregular posts. Keep warm and safe and I'll see you soon. xxx
