Yesterday, I needed to buy myself another embroidery hoop (my sister has ‘borrowed’ mine…), so, when I saw this lovely thing I just had to buy it.
And then, since I now have it,. obviously, rather than get on with my work, I needed to use it. It makes perfect sense, no? So I’ve finished one card,
and started another
So far I’m loving using it. Rather than sit on it, I stand it on the table and stitch on it that way. The only time I’ve had any issues with it is when I’m trying to start or end the thread, because you can’t turn the hoop completely up-side-down! But oh well, it’s really good the rest of the time, 🙂
I’m still thinking about rotas and things, so at the moment I’m just working on whatever takes my fancy (not that I think I could work on anything else, I’m having enough trouble putting it down to work on my maths!).
Also on the subject of rotas, discerning people may have noticed that my usual routine of once a week, on Saturday, has rather gone out the window! It’s currently doing a ‘when I have something to say and enough time to say it!’, and this may settle down, or may stay rather strange. Now that I’m starting to figure out how to change things around on the blog (I have done knitting this year, I just don’t have an accurate measure of how much yet!), you can sign up to get an email whenever I do write a post. There will be some other things coming up over on the right as well (like the pics of my awards), so there we go. I’m also thinking about the idea of having those meters for how far along in their stitchy plans they’ve come, so if anyone can suggest where to get hold of one, or something, I would be very happy 🙂
