Knitting and Stitching

Progress on Mary Wigham has stopped since my previous photo because I have several other projects on the go. I returned to a pair of socks I started last year but because of the pattern I hadn't got very far with them. I frogged the sock, changed the pattern and voila! one sock down and the other on the needles.

Another friend at school is leaving, she came back from maternity leave and decided that she couldn't continue teaching and leaving her little girl at creche. So at the moment she is counting the days to the end of the Christmas term which is when she is finishing. I have started a sampler for her with all the things she has been involved in at school, in the six years she has been with us she has been very busy. On Friday we had another coffee morning, this time for Breast Cancer Care we raised approx £159 At the moment it is half term and we are enjoying the sleep-ins and lazy days although Em seems to be fighting a chest infection at the moment. I hope you have a lovely week whatever you are doing. Jane x

You are such a diligent stitcher! The crosstitch I purchased last summer is still in its packaging! But the socks, oh, I love those socks!

Eeks! I love the sock - absolutely great colors. And the cross stitch is so, so beautiful.

I am just catching up in blogland as I have not really been online much, nevermind actually updating my blog. The socks lok fab.

You must be a super sonic stitcher to get so much done

It looks like you've been pretty busy. The Mary Wigham is beautiful and so intricate and your sampler is lovely - such a sweet leaving present. Hope Em has fought off that chest infection.

Your bright and colourful socks will keep your feet warm when the weather takes a turn for the worse. I love samplers and I hope your friend at school treasures the one you are making for her. That's a great amount you raised for BCC with those lovely little pink cakes. A charity close to my heart. Well done. I hope Em is feeling much better by now. x
