I have been busy on a few projects lately. Here is a quick run down of them.
The following pic is the beginnings of what I hope will be a dandelion. It's a bit of an experiment.
Celebrating the number 5 for an anniversary in one of the groups on Ravelry.
Just for fun.
1. 5 colours x 5 stitches wide x 5 rows.
2. 5 colours x 5 different stitches x 5 sides (pentagon).
3. 5 threads x 5 foundation ch. x 5 sc.
4. 5 colours x 5 puffs x 5 bead stitches.
5. Multiple of 5 foundation x increase every 5th st.
An embroidery piece. Two of these made. The pink is crochet, and there will eventually be a bead or two stitched to the middle of it.
Sorting out my mothers bobbins. Three piles like this. This stack is now untangled and sorted into order. I'll show the sorted photo when I have done all of them.
My mini HEX quilt has progressed a little bit with the blue, black, green and purple rounds added.
The ANZAC day dawn service.
We walked to the town hall and followed the pipes and drums band to the cenotaph and monument.
What an emotional event that was.
When the bugle played and then the silence, apart from the crashing waves on the beach below us.
It really brought it all home.
That 'just-after-dawn' moment.
And a stroll along our Opunake beach yesterday.
Quite an eventful and productive couple of weeks.
