Hello my friends. I do trust this finds you well and coping; and that those among our number who have been ill are in the process of recovering! Once again, my workspace has been in all sorts of areas around the house. The decorating in the front porch is finished apart from the top coats of paint, and I am awaiting a couple of folks to come do some work there before I do that. So what have I been up to this week?
… I have finished the robin! I tried to put the pricked and embossed pattern around the edge, but it just didn’t work, so I matted and layered it as it was. I’m really rather pleased with my efforts!” I know it isn’t perfect, but…
… I have knitted another batch of those little cannula covers for the preemies and weenies. As you will see, the picture shows off the appalling mark I made on my dining table when I knocked over a cafetierre of piping hot coffee!!!
… I have been really industrious with the workspace called the jigsaw board – achieving two completed puzzles this week!
… My workspace on the landing has seen some action with me producing two more worksheets for my friend at church. Both ideas came from my daughters – one has already been sent out to the clients my daughter works with!
… The final workspace this week has been my rather large (and consequently very unruly) garden. It has been lovely working and sitting outside, running the pond pump, so just the sound of bird song and running water! The yellow flowers are Welsh poppies, and the pink are lady smock. These grow wild in the lawn and I refuse to cut that particular lawn until they have finished flowering and spreading their seed. They are quite a rare wild flower, after all!
So that’s me this week, folks. Endeavouring to keep up with the essentials, do some fun things, and generally get on with lockdown. I confess to actually enjoying this slower pace of life, enjoying the beautiful silence when outside, and thoroughly enjoying the fact that my car has now achieved four weeks to the gallon! Thanks so much for the lovely comments you all left last week. It was so good to go round and visit everyone, discovering how you are managing with this new, and very strange, normal.
Do take care and stay safe. God bless you all.
