What a few weeks we have had, it turns out that Aurelia had roseola, so after the three days of really high fever, she broke out into this spotty rash all over her body. She is much better now, so thank you for all your wishes. I think these weeks have been particularly difficult on her with her whole routine thrown out with our visitors, but they have gone home now, so I hope that all will go back to normal. I don't mind visitors, but it's can be just so difficult and straining and everyone seems to be on edge the whole time. After this whole experience, we have decided to scrap the guest room and turn it into a study/rumpus room that we can all use effectively. It also means that the room will get used more than once or twice a year.
On my last post, I forgot to show you a picture of my latest little piece of work, so here it is. It's called Victoria Blooms.
I have also cut all my fabric to size for the Angel of Winter and put all the materials together into my stitching bag ready to go at the end of this month. I have also begun my 12 Blessings of Christmas. I am doing the border first and then will stitch each of the blessings a month at a time. Unfortunately I have not been able to source all the threads I require, so I might fall a little behind with this project.
Now, I have to admit I have been weak, so very, very weak and I couldn't resist joining another SAL. This one is the Bent Creek SAL and we are stitching The Red Thread. Again, I think I may fall behind on this one as I have to order all the materials for it, but as there is only one block a month, I suppose it shouldn't take too long to catch up.
I have also been stitching my scissor fob for the exchange, but I obviously can't share that yet, but I will once my exchange partner has received it. I am very happy with, although I am not really sure how small I am supposed to make it. Currently it looks like it's going to be about 5.5cm, maybe for a bigger set of scissors?
