Hi everyone, I am sorry to have been so quiet this last week, the downside for me has been that both my thumbs and wrists have been giving me quite a lot of trouble and I have had to have a rest from my beloved crochet! It is terribly frustrating because of course, I still work (massage and beauty treatments) do the house work etc - all using hands frequently as we all do, so "resting" them enough for them to improve is quite difficult. To be honest, I would rather give up the work, housework etc and just crochet but that aint gonna happen! I am trying not to let it get me down - I have cream to rub in and a very kind lady on Ravelry has told me to "ice dip" them so I am trying that. I am really cross with myself because this last weekend we went with friends to our first Festival (will post about it later in the week - gives me something else to talk about!!!) and just sitting all day listening to bands play - rested my hands and when I got back yesterday I thought hey - this is good - no pain. Stupidly got up early today, caught up with the ironing, dysoned the whole house and then worked, silly SILLY Kimbles - tonight back to where I started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enough of this I don't mean to whine on to all of you, just wanted to let you know that I havent got bored with blogging or crochet - its just circumstances at the mo! Here are a few colourful crochet pictures to cheer me up mainly!! Showing the Granny Stripe progress before I had to stop
This is me crocheting the granny stripe blanket outside our camper a couple of weekends ago - even then progress was slow! But I have to admit, that afternoon, a glass of wine by my side and crocheting and camping seemed to go really well together!
My beloved Summer Garden Blanket on the camper bed for extra warmth along with the camper cushions (I know they don't match, but I couldn't resist)
And lastly the lovely SIBOL thank you cards that arrived from lovely Sue, for Little Kimbles and myself, really beautiful and we will treasure them. If you haven't got involved in the SIBOL project yet, please check out this lovely blog - where squares are arriving from all over the world and lovely Sue is making them into blankets for the elderly.
Now the biggest "Upside" of the week has been Little Kimbles - I have her permission to tell you she got a 2-1 (I think that is how you show it!!) in her Degree!! We are absolutely bursting with pride, she is working away for the next six weeks, so we will have to wait to crack open the Champagne, but boy those bubbles will be bouncing then!
Thank you so much for dropping by and sticking with me!
Speak soon xx
