This is lesson 2 of my diploma in technical hand embroidery with the Royal School of Needlework. I’m trying to get as far as her chin for next time.
She has a new project case & frame, it’s too big & I can not get my head on her lap, if it comes to it I will have to gnash those wooden structures, when she is not looking. I do like the colours, it is the same colour as me.
I’ve also been working on Stitch, Stop & Roll Afghan by crochet crowd. The pattern is available from yarnsprations, I couldn’t find a suitable stockist for the Bernat yarn suggested, so I’ve gone for Caron super soft, it really is soft & I’ve used it before.
Luna is looking a little dejected this morning as its raining again, if you look carefully she’s wagging her tail ( it’s blurred), she refused to move so I could lay my blocks out & just rolled over a bit. She is also getting a little fed up with me, about the continued exam scrip marking ( which is finished) & the report writing phase that follows. I had a change of project as those circles are so complicated, to work around the school stuff at the moment.
My Dad is out & I am waiting for him to come home. I need lots of sympathy as my paw is still poorly & my eye is weepy because I keep rubbing my head in Mums flowers & bushes. I also wish she would put the heating back on this radiator is cold now!
The shawl was made from Manos Lace, which is a blend of baby alpaca, silk & cashmere made by Manos de Uruguay a non profit organisation bringing economic & social opportunities to rural women in Uruguay.
For all of you who are not Buffy the vampire fans SHS stands for Sunnydale High School , apparently she’s a cheerleader when not killing vampires & other things.
Luna is not always impressed to watch Buffy with Steve . She much prefers murder mysteries especially ones from a quieter time, Luna will come running in to watch her favourite shows if she hears the theme music, & will only go out on ad breaks. They are funny things dogs aren’t they.
Another square finished! Luna continues to help, monitoring progress.
This week I’ve had a little disaster I broke one of my circular interchangeable needles part way through the agents of shield block. If you would like to find the patterns please go to lattes & llamas website.
