2020 updates - Week 8 - Tapestry, blackwork, and knitting


Monday, even though it was a provincial holiday, I still went to work for a few hours.  It is amazing how much work you can get done without co-workers talking, the phone ringing, and client coming in.

Since all my other monthly goals have been finished (Except keeping up with the SAL which is weekly) I went back to Tapestry Monday night.

This is where Tapestry started on Monday


And here is where I was late Sunday afternoon

Not as much progress as I would have liked, but I also need to remember that work is getting busier.

The only other stitching I did this week was Part 8 of the Peppermint Purple SAL.
Still loving this SAL, and also love that its not a huge amount of stitching each week.
Current Week

Progress to date

On the knitting front, I have been attempting a start on the Northeasterly blanket.  For some reason I need to start things 50 million times before I'm either happy with it, for fully understand it.  This was no different.
Thursday night I finally was happy with the start. 
Since my knitting is going so slow lately, this blanket will be made up of leftovers and mini skeins that I pick up from local yarn shops or dyers.

Hope everyone had a great week, and here is to the last week of February... Hopefully March brings some sun!

2020 updates - Week 6

I have been trying to do my blog updates Sunday afternoons or evenings, but I had a massive headache.

I finally got a change to get caught up tonight.

Monday I worked on Tapestry for Ink Circles Monday


Wednesday is release day for the Peppermint Purple - A Year of Blackwork SAL.  I got week 6 done as started work on the border.


Saturday I sat down to work on Words to live by, but the mess of my stitching area was BUGGING ME!!!
So, I cleaned it out, and then got to work on the border of Part 3.
I didn't get too far as Hubby and I spent a big part of the day together and then joined some friends for gaming.  Day out included YUMMY Indian Food

Like I said, Sunday wasn't a great day, so no stitching to report.
Let hope this coming Sunday is MUCH MUCH BETTER!!
