8th Day A Week

I have to admit when I thought about an eighth day in each week I thought of this Beatles song.

Crochet - Panda Applique Square

I finally managed to do a little bit of crocheting the other day. Not that much though because it was still a little bit painful. I finished off the nose, arms and feet of the panda on Wednesday and I sewed them together on Thursday. 

My hand has been a bit sore since Wednesday and I have decided that I should give crocheting a bit of a rest for a while. I don't want to undo my healing progress so far. It looks like I might be going back to my crosswords for a while longer.

I do need to get a wriggle on with this zoo blanket. My niece has 8 weeks to go until her due date. I want it finished long before her baby arrives. I am hoping that my hand is up to doing some more crocheting soon.

Shopping Online Again

I've been buying more stuff on ebay. Not that much mind you. Only a few craft supplies. I bought this bag of DMC thread. I'm not sure if I will use it when I start applique again or whether I should maybe start up cross-stitch again.  I haven't decided yet. 

There are 50 skeins of thread in 50 different colours. 
I'm thinking perhaps that cross-stitch may be the way to go.

Thankful Thursday

Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • sunshine
  • not needing to take any pain killers for my hand ☺ that's always a bonus
  • the boys have continued to wash the dishes after tea. I really appreciate that.
  • for being able to do a small amount of crocheting 
  • milder weather
  • foggy starts to the day which turn into lovely sunny afternoons
what are you thankful for this week?
