Well, DS1 has spread his cold through the whole family, so since the weekend, we have all been feeling sorry for ourselves in varying degrees, burying ourselves in a mountain of tissues. Not very pleasant at all. As well as that, yesterday was spent reinstalling drives onto the computer and doing various scans, so all in all it has been a frustrating couple of days.
I have managed to do a bit of stitching and knitting, and yes, there was another new start. I need some more DMC threads for the honeysuckle cushion. I thought if I carried on, there was every chance that I would end up having to frog at a later stage. Don't know about you, but I can do without that. Starting something else seemed the better option.
Some of you are aware I am trying to get through all the kits I have purchased over the years, so I have started a Clarice Cliffe design from Readicut. I completed the first one of the pair last year. They are stitched in cross stitch, half cross stitch and back stitch using DMC threads.
I would show you a picture of what I have stitched so far, but a lot of the stitching I have done is in white. It makes it very difficult to pick up on a photo. Hopefully, today I can get some more colour on there so you can see it tomorrow.
On the knitting front, I have got past the armhole shaping on the back of the top and have about 3 or 4 more inches to knit to complete the back. That should be done this evening.
On another note, I am thinking of making things to sell to make some extra income. I need to find something I can do to stay at home with the boys and someone suggested this might be the way for me to go. I have spent all weekend thinking about it, going from feeling very excited and having lots of ideas, to feeling very apprehensive as to whether anyone would want to buy. The thing with being a single parent, there's no one here that I can thrash ideas out with. I have a few weeks to think about it as the new financial year doesn't start to the beginning of April.
Oh well, I have to go and sort out the bread. I wonder if kneading will help me sort out my thoughts.
