Getting ready...

As I am going into hospital(fingers crossed they don't cancel) on Wednesday and I don't know how incapacitated I am going to be I decided a trip to Hobbycraft was needed.I havn't done any cross stitch for a while only knitting and crocheting so off we went.I spotted the above in the sale.An Elsa Williams kit reduced from £31 down to £10 and it was of a peacock.My daughter's married name is Peacock so I thought it would make a nice present for her and the style,slightly impressionistic appealed to me.
I have also had a load of Stylecraft Special DK in various shades of pinks and mauves delivered(Afan Crafts £1.30 a ball and a huge range of colours).This is for making snuggle blankets for my two younger granddaughters.
My other little project is a Pompom maker.That looks fun.
So, do you think I am going to have enough to keep me busy?


  1. You should have!!

    Hope all goes well, and that you will be up and about in no time.


  2. Looking good. I must admit that I always under-estimate how boring hospital is going to be ... you cannot have too much to entertain you. Good luck and hope all goes well.
