It's getting a bit chilly now

Earlier this year I was complaining that it was too damn hot, and now here I am a couple of weeks into September sitting at my computer with my dressing gown on over my clothes.  I have the feeling that it might well be a long cold winter this year.  There are lots of berries on the trees still and the weather has turned temperamental.  Maybe it's just me, I could be wrong, I hope so.

So what can I say on the stitching front?

I have some nice progress to report on Bouquet 5, courtesy of a couple of lunch time stints and a Patchwork Group meeting last week.  All that is left to do are the flowers, a couple of leaves and the back stitching.  If I can just get a grip, I should be able to show a finish in the next week or so.

I should really be showing you a progress picture on Serena, but I had a bout of the blues at the weekend so did very little stitching at all over those two days.  I did put in a couple of hours on Train of Dreams on Sunday morning and completed another block.

Work on Carnation went very well this week.  I finished row 8 and completed the first two blocks on row 9.  A page finish and scroll up is just around the corner.

On the weight loss front, I put 3.5lb back on this week.  However I'm OK with this.  When you lose weight quickly through illness, it's bound to come back and I'm still 0.5lb lighter than I was before I was ill.

I'm going to cut this post short cos I'm cold and tired, so I wish you all the best and may the frog stay away from your stitching.

  1. It is cold here, now, and the mutters are that it will be cold early next year. I hope they are wrong, but there are lots of berries here as well. Congratulations on the weight loss, even in tough circumstances. WS xxx
