I've been catching up this evening with some of the things I've been making lately. First up, a finish from last month, Violets by Shepherd's bush. I'm not sure as yet how I'm going to finish it.
At the weekend, I made one of my previous finishes into a biscornu. The design is a freebie that I got with a package of Dinky dye fibres from West End embroidery at the Harrogate show a couple of years ago.
A couple of weekends ago, I made my first visit to a new and very lovely bead shop that has opened in Glasgow along with a couple of people from my knitting group. Its a fabulous shop and I'm planning a return visit soon. Whilst I was there, I picked up some purple beads that I've made into elasticated bracelet. You can see two of them below.
Whilst I was there, I also bought a watch face, some glass beads and silver spacers that became this watch and bracelet set. Its a slightly late Mother's day present for my mum which I hope she like. She doesn't read my blog so its safe to share here.
In my goals post, I mentioned that I've made some progress on Autumn watergarden and Japanese Octagon box so I thought I'd share some progress pictures. I'm enjoying my stitching again thankfully.
Not much else going on here. I'm working this weekend on night shift then flipping back on to day shift on Tuesday, which I am very unimpressed about but I'm off work the following week. On Wednesday, I saw my GP and I've got sinusitis, which would account for the facial pain and general washed out feeling I've had lately. I have some antibiotics to take which are making me feel pretty sick but at least they are helping.
