I could have renamed one of my childrens all time favourite childrens books.....
Julie goes to the doctor
I'm feeling lot brighter now, but i have no stitching to share with you, i haven't pick up a needle for simply ages...... no parlour stitching, no stocking-a-long either. I've missed the dealine for the monthly challenge this month too so that didn't get done either.
I can show you a couple of small things i finished before i was sick.
Isabelle celebrated her birthday on Sunday, she was 2 this time and i had already knitted her a topsy turvy dolly with 2 heads. The pattern came from this Jean Greenhowe booklet.
turns into Miss Rose
We bought her a wendy house for the garden, it was very PINK
It's even big enough for nanny's to play inside too!
My mum will be celebrating her birthday this weekend. Just a small something to add to her other birthday gift, this time i added a small stitched design to a mirror from framecraft. I liked the muted colours of this scene, it made me think of the scottish highlands where my late maternal grandfather used to live, i hope mum likes it too.
I've been reading and finished the book i received from Maggie at the stitchers meet up last month. Me Before You was a fabulous book, i thoroughly enjoyed it. 2420 readers on amazon have given it 5 ***** and i agree with them. There are so many recommendations from newspapers and magazines and individuals. Not many books reduce me to tears, but the final chapters in this did. I've passed it on to the ladies at the Book Borrowers and one has already read it, its now gone to a new home this week. I can see this one being something we talk about a lot after they have all read it. Thanks Maggie, Jojo Moyes is not someone i have read before, but i will certainly be trying more of her books.
Tonight is Parlour night stitching with the ladies at NH. I've only got the bottom floral border on Little Hill to do, so am planning on having a finish this week. It will be nice to have needle in hand again, i've missed it.
I see i have a couple of new followers, shouting a big WELCOME to you, it's nice to have new folks stop by and leave a comment.
See you soon with my Little Hill finish ....
