Weekly craft update

Not an exciting gripping title this week but I didn’t sleep well last night so 😛 that’s what I’m calling it.

Not a lot happened this week in the crafty household.  Its busy and its summer so there is more ‘outside’ going on than you get in winter. Plus, being summer and New Zealand and the Bay of Plenty we have 2 long weekends in a row which also means more of the outside stuff.  Still, relatively good progress was made.

About 1110 stitches this week.  Is slow going again as we are back into the world of confetti.  I think that is why I am not really enjoying this stitch.  Its so huge on confetti that you feel like you are not getting anywhere all the time.  I don’t usually mind confetti because the results are beautiful but all the different shades of brown are driving me batty.

Can’t complain.  2.5 pages to go and then I can move on to bigger and better things 😉 Once this baby is done I have about 20 knitting squares to catch up on but I am refusing to do anything else until completion.



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
