Spring has sprung here in my part of Paradise, and last night was time to turn the clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving time. Our evenings will be little longer, more time to enjoy the balmy early evenings. It must be said that I love Summer.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately with several appointments in the lead up to Robin’s knee replacement, and his operation last Tuesday. It went well, I’m pleased to say, and he was home within a few days. He wasn't allowed home until he could get out of bed and back in unaided, attend to his ablutions, and walk up and down a few steps by himself. Now he is home he is resting up, doing his exercises, walking slowly around, and healing. I’m sure he will improve day by day.
This is something I finished earlier, but hadn't yet blogged about it. My second apron using another lovely transfer from Stitcher’s Revolution. Be Grateful is from the Cute Kitchen Sayings series. It started off looking like this.
In the beginning
I’ve been stitching along bit by bit, and I’m really pleased how it turned out. I do my stitcheries using Perle No 5 (no thin stranded cottons for me) and the purchased apron is made with something like a drill fabric.
This is the second of these aprons I have made with stitching on the front. The first was made for the caravan, and this one will be used in the kitchen at home. I have made a start on another stitching project, so will work on that next in my slow stitching time.
Have a great day, and happy slow stitching to everyone.
