You are so kind to send me messages even when I have been away so much.It makes me feel warm all over to know there is so much kindness around. Things have been pretty grim and I just couldn't write. Lovely boy is still not in the clear but he is well enough to be in school- so life is kind of moving on again. I have been feeling a bit low and not really in the mood for doing much, I haven't been making or baking, and hardly even seeing my friends( most unususal). If you have had any very stressful times you will probably know just how I was feeling.
However, we went away for a little holiday last week in the mountains. We went for lots of walk and ate lovely food and really got away from hospital appointments and medical things.I am feeling so much better that when we came back I was tempted by some lovely yarn. The shade is called heather and it shades between grey, cream,lilac and pink. My daughter wanted a hat for her skiiing trip which is coming up soon so I was inspired to get out my knitting needles.
Knitting !! It's true , I can occasionally be tempted to play with yarn and two needles instead of my trusty hook. This is what I made her- I persauded her to model it for you. Apparently hats with ear flaps are IT at the moment. She has shown me her magazines and it appears to be true. All mad if you ask me, but she does look very cute.
Well just fiddling around with a bit of knitting seems to have got my creative side back , and I have started working on my granny stripes again.
I have also been making a couple of simple cot quilts for the hospital.
I have even started to make my Christmas cards , I'll show you them next time. In the next few days I'm going to be pottering around the blogs and seeing what you are all up to. It's so nice to be back with you all.
Thank you all again
lots of love
