New pincushion made from a needlepoint stitch sample (Jacquard stitch) backed with flowery cotton fabric and stuffed with animal wool.
For most of this year I've been busy sorting, clearing, chucking, charity-shopping all kinds of stuff. I probably have still more stuff that I need but it's now down to a more manageable size. I don't collect things any more but do get attached to those I have, particularly to books.
There has been knitting. And frogging. This blue number is one of my better efforts.
A beaded Summerleaf shawl for a friend's birthday - details on Ravelry.
I'm back to low carb eating and feel better/have more energy than earlier this year. Have a nice crustless quiche - this one is broccoli and smoked mackerel.
The builders have gone, the scaffolding is down and my balcony pots have new plants - a blue daisy (Felicia amelloides), a scented pelargonium (Concolour Lace) and a yellow-flowering plant (below) that had lost its label.
Can anyone identify it?
