In Stitches.

2 sorts of stitches, knitting and sewing, are dominating my life right now. That is not a moan, quite the opposite, I almost wish that I could grow more arms and hands and do both kinds at once.

I am up to my neck with strip sets and piles of strips waiting to be sewn. I have a pair of socks that are almost ready for the toe decreases, 2 childs garments and an Aran weight jumper on the go.

I am trying hard to concentrate on just 2 knitting projects and the quilt but have had a lot of running around in the past week. Consequently I have missed out on crafting time.

I am up to date with Strictly, not enjoying it so much this year though.

I have a list of things to be started and as I do not want to put needless pressure on myself I have taken certain steps.

I made a list of all my "want to make" things and cut the list into single items. The paper slips are in a box and once a current project is finished I will take a lucky dip and pull the next one out. That way I will not have to worry about what to start first, the decision has been made. 

I had another day at The Flying Geese yesterday, it was a bit quieter but I still had a stream of lovely people to chat with.

Today has been glorious weather and several jobs have been completed in the garden. My potted Hyacinths have started to shoot, so have to come inside soon, I can't see them waiting too long before flowering.

Dinner is on the go, and smelling very good,  Roast root veg crumble with a cider sauce tonight. I will put lots of seeds in the crumble topping and some cheese with breadcrumbs to have a crunchy topping.

On that note I am off to get the sauce made and check it all out.

  1. The crumble sounds gorgeous, every element of it. My crocheting mojo is just about ready to come out of hibernation, I think - I hope so anyway.

  2. Your dinner sounds just my thing to enjoy. I would be in heaven helping out in a fabric/yarn shop but would need to leave all means of payment at home!! Great idea about having a lucky dip for the next project. Catriona

  3. Lucky dip crafting....what a fabulous idea.
    Dinner sounds wonderful.

  4. That meal sounds lovely.I am also not enjoying Strictly as much this year.It is because it is not a level playing field.Howcan Ruth Langsford compete against Alexandra Burke.It must be so frustrating.I think they all ought to start at the same level.Bx

  5. I am not enjoying Strictly as much as usual either. What time do you want me for dinner?
