...to that cake! Why not just add one more thing into a life that seems super busy? This year was going to be just a tad more organised after last year's mad whirl. I started well with plans to not commit to too much...
...finish off some cross stitch- this is where I ran out of thread! SOS call to The Crewel Gobelin!
And get these rapidly aging eyes working on this sweet little pineapple cross stitch...salvaged after it's recent horror trip from the US. The pattern was water damaged but useable and you can see the staining on the top of the linen...it will be out of the completed stitching area so I thought I could live with it. It is so tiny working in one strand over 1 thread and with a significant birthday almost here I am finding it a challenge to say the least.
So, what else have I done? I have opted to do some study of course! With the encouragement of my always enthusiastic boss it looks like I will be doing a postgrad qualification in Drug & Alcohol Nursing this year. Fun! Sewing will have to act as my stress release I think. I have studied with distance education before, but this will be the first time it has been university based...watch this space!
