Thank you to everyone who showed their concern after our storm. All is well, except the holes in the pergola are right over where I hang my washing when it rains and it's raining and all wet under the pergola!
After the week of visitors and then a week of DH at home, we are finally getting back into our daily routine. Aurelia is back to having her normal daily sleeps, but unfortunately won't go to sleep on her own in her bed at night. I am still having to feed her asleep, but then she cries if I just move. If I do get her to her own bed, she stays there for about half and hour and then cries again and ends up in our bed. I am very dissapointed as she was in an excellent routine before Christmas, sleeping in her own bed, having daily naps and not needing a feed every moment of the day. Since our visitors, she has completely changed and does not want to go back to her routine. Maybe I just need a little patience for a little while longer.
As a result of this behaviour, I have not been getting any stitching done in the evenings, although I am getting in 2 hours everyday while she is asleep. I am very pleased to show the first of the 12 Blessings of Christmas. I have completed 'Peace' for January and a third of the whole border. I could just keep stitching this one, but I am only doing one blessing each month till Christmas.
I have also completed my scissor fob for the exchange and it has been posted. It turned out beautifully, especially since it was the first one I ever made. I will be posting a picture as soon as my exchange person receives it.
I have also joined a Little House Needlework RR. Maybe I am crazy, but I just could not pass this opportunity up, so in the next two weeks, I am going to make a trip to the LNS to stock up on some LHN designs. I am really excited as this is one of my favorite designers. I have a couple of questions for you stitchers out there.
- Does anyone know the conversion from Crescent Colours to DMC, I don't think Crescent Colours are colourfast?
- Does anyone have any LHN freebies that they are willing to share?
Finally, here is an update of Victorian Blooms, I have the back stitching of the flower stems and then the border to get done. I see a finish for this year coming on.
