I have been working on some new fresh ideas for my stitching routine and I have something new that I’d like to try. I have been working on Nature’s Home Afghan for what seems like ages and I would like to get things moving as I really love this project and would like to see it finished sooner than later. So, I have come up with a new plan. I am going to make Nature’s Home my focus piece in my routine. I am going to keep it simple.
- Nature’s Home Afghan (5 hours slot or more if needed).
- WIPs list (whaterver project that is next on my list).
- Small projects, SALs, exchanges or whatever I’d like to do.
This sounds pretty flexible, each slot has an estimated 5 hours work, more if needed. I’ll try out this rotation for a while and see how it goes. I did work on Nature’s Home Afghan yesterday and was able to finish another block. Here is a picture.
I really love working on it like I said before and I want to give it more attention. I’ll try to get a decent view from the whole afghan later today but won’t promise a nice one as the weather is a little bit grey and dull.
I worked on the next slot in my routine yesterday and stitched about 4 hours on “Under the Friendship Tree”. I’ll post a picture of that one when I am done working on it this time. And then I have to decide what I am going to work on during my “free slot”. Pretty exciting isn’t it. 🙂
I have got some exciting things to share with you. I have my 40th birthday coming up on October 11th. I’ve been tossing and turning over whether to have a big party or just do something special with my husband. Well, we finally decided, the flight and hotel is booked and we are going to London for 6 days, just the 2 of us. We haven’t had a holiday together just the two of us since I turned 35 years old – yes, that is 5 years ago. It is high time to do something special together. I am so excited about this trip. My mother will move into our flat and take care of the girls for us. That is a perfect solution as both the older girls have school during our holiday and the youngest one will go to her day care centre. Anyway, we have some pretty nice things planned for our holiday. Apart from just enjoying ourselves and enjoying each other’s company, we are planning to visit a market (either Greenwhich or Portobello), have an “Afternoon Tea” somewhere nice (I have always wanted to try this but never made it happen), go for walks in St. James Park (our favourite one). And guess what, I found out that “The Knitting & Stitching Show” is on at Alexandra Palace while we are in London so I am spending friday the 9th October at the show. I have always wanted to go but the timing was never right. I am pretty excited about the show and my husband is even going with me (and no need to twist his arm to go). 🙂
Well, that’s a lot of news for one post so I guess I’ll leave you here. I’ve got a nasty bug (fever, cough, headache) that has kept me home from work since monday but I am getting better and will probably be able to go back to work tomorrow. Thanks to those who are still reading, I really appreciate your visits. Have a wonderful day!
