SAL: September update 

Standard


I finally chose a new SAL project to finish, the stitch a long I started with the frosted pumpkin. January & February’s were already finished. Yes, those are 3 billy goats.  I hope to have that square finished by next time.

Dragonfly cushion

I’ve completed more along the top. Back to school has been very tricky, wrong time tables , rooms, lost students & students in your lesson not on your list, but it is good to be back in many ways. It feels like I didn’t have a holiday & it’s only one week back. I get my day off this week & I have less lessons to teach, it is probably going to be nicknamed ‘short week’. I have baseline tests to mark this week. Welcome back !

What’s on my frame.

Standard

Canvas stitches, still working through them, I have now turned the frame round & started working on the other end, I have only done a couple to nothing much at that end yet. 

My school planner is finished & I’ve been doing a fair amount of planning this week

Yes the school bags are out Luna is guarding them. Next week I’m in school every day ( I have training on my day off☹️). She will be watching at the window all next week for me to come home, the second week she won’t even bother to get up & see me off & by the end of September she will know my work pattern better than me. 

Geek blanket 

Standard

During my recent big tidy up I found some large double knitting squares, form a KAL a few years ago, I can’t remember who hosted it, but I only completed a small number of squares. 

Mum very kindly crocheted around the outside for me & made up the ‘geek blanket ‘ . Thanks Mum😁. Stephen thinks it belongs to him, but I’m sure Luna has been eyeing it up for winter. 

The squares are Cathulu, Dr Who, Harry Potter Huffelpuff, Marvel agents of shield, Batman, Harry Potter Ravenclaw, Star Wars, hitch hiker’s guide to the galaxy, Buffy.

SAL: zodiac sampler finished

Standard

The last one is finished😁


The whole thing.


Is has been installed in my kitchen, between the fridge freezer & the back door. I managed to squeeze my ‘wheel of the year ‘ prints in too, I glad they fitted into the space as they have been sitting on s shelf for a couple of years after redecorating ( they didn’t fit in with the colour scheme)

Please have a look at what the others have been working on.
