In the meantime indoor pursuits are once again in progress so a few rows of crochet here and there have been added to the Nordic Noir shawl.
I love the simplicity of this pattern and it will work so well through the seasons morphing from a wrap into a thick Winter scarf. The shawl is made in one piece from the top down, working in rows to form a triangle.
The sewing machine has been out and I have made a Christmas table cloth to line a hamper that I have in mind for my parents.
I have enough fabric left to edge a couple of tea towels. Using the same pattern fabric but in a different colour I have also made a table runner with once again enough fabric to fancy up a couple of tea towels.
The pocket was a scrap of plain yellow fabric. The other bag was Christmas fabric lined with a plain cotton inner.
Brooches are always a great make that can be popped inside an envelope, so I have made some for the gift cupboard using some Harris Tweed scraps that I had and used a felted flower for the centres.
As Gerard has had a flare up of RA he too has been taking things easy and enjoying reading, doing crosswords and jigsaw puzzles. We were at the hospital yesterday so a change of medication should improve things and he was given a steroid injection which should make him a little more comfortable. As I am typing this the rain has once again started, any hope of getting anything done outside is quickly fading.
Whats the weather like in your neck of the woods?
See you soon.
