The knitting made progress. Well, to be more grammatically correct, I made progress on the knitting. The back is finished which is the signal - time for some stitching.
So it's back to the green diamonds! But the end of this project is in sight too. This arrangement seems to be working for me. A short break gives added impetus.
Tonight I planted some sweet pea seeds with which I hope to bring pleasure to the DBEM in a few months time.
And I cooked this ginormus lump of meat that the beef cattle on Little Brother's mini-farm generously gave me:-) The DBEM and I will feed on this for several days!
Last weekend was my 6 weekly grocery shop. The DBEM likes wheatmeal sandwich bread and although the "proper" brand is nearly $4 a loaf, home brand is $1. But happy dance - on Saturday I struck a bargain. Guess what is filling up my freezer now:-) I've always been a little envious of the "yellow sticker" bargains my UK friends talk about as we never seem to get those bargains here. For a producing nation, New Zealand food costs are high. But on this occasion I won. Hooray!
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
