Blog Entry An update for July Jul 3, ’12 5:22 PM
for everyone
I have been away for a few days break with my parents and the kids, which was enjoyed by all.  Apart from that I’ve just been relaxing and enjoying being spoilt by mum and dad, not having to do much in the way of housework or cooking (at least doing it with someone makes it much easier).  On the stitching front, I’ve been working on Cotillion again and am really enjoying how it is coming along.  Had a senior moment last night when I confused >> with == and used the wrong colour thread on a whole motif, but hey ho – only God is perfect!

My daughter has also been working on a little gift for her father, as we won’t be together for Eid this year – she had a bit of frogging to do as she ran out of the first colour half-way through the second half of the design and had to use a different one – guess who had to do that LOL.
I tried to learn how to crochet last month – didn’t go well.  I can do a chain but after that just get lost.  Maybe you really can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  I’m still trying to figure out something for the Stitching Hangout’s pink theme for this month – probably should do something for my sister-in-law who is expecting a baby girl in September, but not sure I can tear myself away from my stitching.

Not as far as I know Denise, we all sort of drifted away unfortunately.

Glad you had a nice visit with your family. It’s always nice to get away and just relax…. recharges your batteries! 😉 Cotillion is looking really beautiful Julie! The red fabric really makes your stitches pop! And your daughter’s piece is very nice… too bad about the floss running out. I just hate it when that happens. =]

Cotillion looks really lovely on the red.

The Islamic calligraphy looks nice..sorry about the frogging. I know what it is not to have too much of one colour. I am also having big problems with one of my projects.

Is it Eid Mubarak?

Good luck learning to crochet.

Enjoy the stitching time.

Thanks for your lovely comments on my page.
