A Fresh Start


Here's a pic of my new start, Peace Inside. It's designed by Midsummer Night Designs and it's such a fun stitch! Lots of colour which is just what I needed to brighten up my days. I ended up using three strands of floss for the blue in the house and the red in the roof. The coverage was just a little too thin with only the two strands. Consequently I've already run out of the CC Razzleberry . I didn't have a whole lot of this one left in my stash so I've just placed an order for another skein.  Any change in dye lot should be fine since the remainder is being used as an outline for the garden flowers. I think I'll stick with stitching this one on the weekend and then maybe return to Feather Your Nest next week.


Thank you all for your many well wishes. Since my medication has taken effect I'm feeling much better. I can now get a full night's sleep without interruption which has made all the difference in the world! I imagine I'll find out my test results in a week or so and I'll deal with it at that time. 
It's a beautiful spring day here and I've opened up all the windows to let in the fresh air. Love it! So does Clarisse whose been sitting by the window all day, watching the birds and squirrels.




I hope you all enjoy your weekend doing what you love best. Perhaps a little stitching?

What a lovely and cheerful start! I dont think you have a thing to worry about if you get a different dye lot.

Lynn ... I'm so glad to find out you are feeling a little bit better. I've just read your post about your nasty rash and then just had to find another post to see how you are now. :)

Some lovely WIPs nonetheless.

Good to read you're feeling better, Lynn :) I know a full night's sleep can work wonders!!

Such a cute new start--glad you made it through the whole roof with your current skein of Razzleberry. Color differences on the skeins can be unbelievable some times...

Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better and are finally able to get a good night's sleep. I hope it will be nothing too serious....my Sister has a gluten allergy and she has to be so careful.

Love the new start and Clarrise is so pretty :)

Very cute cottage. I love the red and white tiles on the roof :) Glad to hear you're feeling much better.

Hugs,

A lovely new start. I've just been for a look at Midsummer Night Designs. I've seen a few before but didn't remember this one :)

Glad you are feeling better.

Clarisse is gorgeous.
