Tiredness overcame me

Well what can I say, tiredness got the better of me.  In between snoozes I did manage to do little bits and pieces of stitching.

I finished the stitching of LHN Little Sheep Virtues No. 1 (Hope),




And I was able to make a start on LHN Little Sheep Virtues No.2  (Love).

 
Not entirely sure how I will make these up....singley as little pillows, but the ultimate finishing has got me a little bit stumped.

I also sorted out some wool to knit up a few projects, and went through all my stitching stash to see what I can
start on  
 
continue stitching on with.

I have a few Just Nan projects I would love to starting in the not to distant future -  well they are on order from my favourite ONS.....Honey Bunny, Cute Hoots Ollie and Percy and 8 point Star Garden to name a few.   When they arrive I will post a photo.  Even the packets are so colourful.

I was such a Just Nan fan, and did Last Stitches and almost finished First Stitches.  Both are to be completely finished and made up.

My next post will be a little more productive.  Fingers crossed.

March IHSW

Its that time again when its the International Hermit and Stitch weekend (IHSW).  I haven't been doing much stitching of late because I think all the radiation and chemo is starting to catch up with me, so I have been sleeping a lot.  This weekend can hopefully be a catch up weekend of stitching.

I plan to finish LHN Little Sheep Virtues No. 1 (Hope), and maybe start No.2 (Love) or else continue on with either Black Cat or The Flock.  I will see how I feel - if I can stay awake long enough.  I was doing so well with my stitching there for a while - I hope this is just temporary. 
 
See you after the weekend.

A lovely giveaway

As I was looking at all the crafters blogs I follow, I got a link to Barbaras blog, and she is giving away a lovely Kathy Barrick chart, some linen and some thread.  Pop over and have a look - click here.

Feeling really tired after chemo, so I have had a bit of a rest from stitching.  Will update soon.
