It has been a week of ups and downs, but still I managed to work through my worries about what the world is becoming.
I did lots of extra cleaning, getting things in tip top shape and hopefully tidy enough that things will stay that way if and when I go in for my surgery. However that seems farther away as the province is having an uptick in Covid-19 cases that just might stop the surgeries once again. Still I am carrying on under the optimistic theory that soon I will be in and out of surgery well on the road to recovery.
I finished Harvey's Christmas gift at the beginning of the month. Using yarn from my stash (still have most of one ball left so I foresee some more mitts being fashioned this winter).
Ignore the mess of yarn on the floor, I need to tidy once again. The sweater is actually not this shade of blue. It is more of a dark royal blue.
Then I started work on the cozy for Harvey's carboy. No picture of the item. I made it out of an old towel so it really isn't that pretty to look at.
I worked on the cross stitch that I put aside and managed some stitching in the early afternoons.
I don't know how much I will get completed this month as things have gotten dark and dreary. I will keep you all updated on it's progress.
I also moved on to making a quilt top. Not that it will be completed this month (unless I draw the number once again) but I have managed a bit of work on it.
This is going to be the center portion of the quilt. Nothing quite matches correctly and it needs pressing. I now know why the triangles are cut before sewing. I will do better next time.
These are the blocks which will surround the center.
I still have some to sew together and then I will need to press them. I will finish the blocks off tomorrow and Tuesday is ironing day so I will add these to the pile.
On Monday I chose another number to work on. Hopefully I might even pick the quilt number once again.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
