Hello........ So I've decided this year instead of a 'Craft Round up' post at the end of each month I'm going to do a monthly mosaic, with whats been going on here at the Summerhouse.
So here's January......
A month with lots and lots of rain here in the UK so lots of time for hunkering down. My healths been in relapse all month and I'm still trying to shake off the cold I picked up at the beginning of December !! so I've mostly been stuck in bed but I did manage a wonderful afternoon at the local Wild animal park. Lots of yarniness to crochet and a bit of knitting and of course I had lots of fun making my faery wand.
I've been making squares for my Spring time throw, 23 in total for the month, how I wish I sewn the ends in as I went as now I have a big pile to do. Maybe I'll try and sew them in at the end of each week from now on . So that's 23 down, out of the 432 needed for the pattern eek.
Here's how they are looking, not sure I'll have as many done by the end of this month as about 10 of them were already part made from when I first learnt to crochet a couple of years ago, I had to frog the last round and redo them as I'd got the pattern wrong as a newbie crocheter.
One of my New Year Resolutions was to try and do some art each week, so here's January efforts, hopefully I'm going to improve as the year goes on.
Here's my latest picture inspired by my trip out. It's painted in water colour and ink.
As for reading I've started February's book and so far I'm enjoying it, it's 'Earthly Joys' by Philippa Gregory, a historical novel but there lots about gardening in the 1600's so I'm finding it really interesting.
Well that about it for this time, I'd liked to say thank you for all the lovely comments that have been left on my last few posts, I love to read them and I'm sorry if I don't always get around to replying but I'm struggling a bit with this relapse at the moment.
The good news is the Immunologist has agreed to see me after some convincing by my GP and I'm also about to start a stricter anti inflammatory diet this week, wish me luck as I think it's going to be tough. I'm also looking into having some oxygen therapy in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber so hopefully these Lyme bugs won't know whats about to hit them.
