It's Been Quiet

This is due to a variety of reasons, lack of sleep, being busy, hands suffering from too much gardening, and the most frustrating-no internet!  Since Sunday, there has been a problem, but hopefully, it has now been fully sorted.  It's been very frustrating not being able to get online, or not to be able to do what I want when we can get a connection.  My boys probably think it would be fun to keep me quiet, but that's sons for you.

It's not been totally unproductive here, I did finish another pair of socks, not much to show for a week of activity.
I did receive a lovely gift though.  Some friends have just come back from Japan, and she brought me some lovely fabric.  I'm not sure what pleased me most, the fabric, or the fact that she took the time to go and look especially for something I might like.

Hopefully, other tasks have been done, and I can get a few days at home with enough time to get stitching.  I have two embroidery pieces started on the class that need my attention.

It would take me a lot longer than a week to complete a pair of socks, so I think you've been very productive indeed.
Lovely fabric. What a lovely friend.

Glad to see you back online, Jane - I was getting a tad concerned! I know it's a pain when you lose your internet connection for more than a day, but gosh, don't you get a lot of other things done when you're not online?! I know I do, and I find myself making a resolution not to spend so much time on there in future, but the best laid plans etc...

Love the socks!

I don't know how I lived without the internet, but I can remember a time without. I think I got a lot more done than I do nowadays.
