Not one single stitch today. It was one of THOSE days where commitments, jobs and mundane things like (dare I say it) housework and balancing the cheque book take precedence over the fun things like stitching. Tomorrow I'll be away all day, so it will be another sad day - I will be suffering from withdrawals I know!
- This one is for the knitters. Are you like me and end up casting on too tightly and then having to wrestle with your first row of stitches? Perhaps you might find the suggestion HERE to be useful. Such a simple thing, but it might just be the answer.
- If you like sheep, there's a cute free cross stitch pattern HERE (it's a PDF).
- There's a sweet cross stitch needle book pattern (but could be used for other things as well) HERE. And if you go to THIS link you can scroll down and find a whole raft of cute free patterns.
- I've been seeing a number of crocheted mandalas in my travels about the internet and I thought THIS and THIS were intriguing, and THIS is absolutely spectacular (please click through to see the originator of this one)!!
Oh, and you're all so curious about what that mysterious 'thing' was I posted about on Friday? Well, I hate to tell you that you are likely going to be sadly disappointed when you find out, but hopefully there will be a little grandson who is turning two in a few days who might be happy!
That 'thing' you saw turned into this!
Which will go along with this, to make a happy little pirate! Or at least I hope it will!
Today the quote is from Lauryn Hill...."Let me be patient, let me be kind. Make me unselfish, without being blind. I may have faith to make mountains fall, but if I lack love then I am nothing at all"
