We are flat-out at work, right smack bang in the middle of one of the busiest seasons I have seen. That’s great for business but not so great for crafty achievements. There has been some progress but not nearly as much as I would have liked to get done.
I finished my mat 😀 This was a bit of a mad panic as it was my monthly crafting achievement and it nearly came down to the wire. If I hadn’t gotten that tummy bug a couple of weeks ago I am pretty sure it would have been my first month without a craft finish.
As you can tell, I had a wee helper in my endeavours. He accidentally got poked a couple of times with the hooky thing but it didn’t seem to phase him.
We call it the ugly rug.
It’s definitely not the prettiest thing that I have ever achieved but it has given me a fantastic idea for another one. I just need to get a long bit of matting and some wool and I will be off 😀
After the tummy bug finished its 3 day vacation in my body and I could finally do something that required thinking again I managed to get a bit further along on my cross stitch, although this has not been of epic proportions. Any progress is good progress right 🙂
And that’s about it really. I did purchase a couple of new patterns as they had a 50% off flash sale over at Heaven & Earth Designs.
The first one, Frozen, will be for my daughter. As I have already done one for her this is not going to be high on my priority list and I have told her she may get it by the time she is 50 if she’s lucky.
The second, Lest We Forget, I may do in diamond painting. The long-term goal for this one is to get it framed up with my Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers war medals.
The third, Mint & Roses, I just thought was really cute 😀
So that’s pretty much me for this week.
