It seems to be AWOL at the moment. I've done plenty of study and had some more papers marked which is good, but I don't seem to have much to show in the way of needle work.
I picked up my cross stitch the other day and did a little more work on my brothers regiment badge, but forgot to take a photo.
Something that did take up 3-4 hours was a work challenge. The welfare committee challenged us to talk to our residents and ask them what would be the light at the end of their tunnel, then to translate that in to a decoration that would fit on to their room doors.
Hmm, it was on the tip of my tongue to ask if the welfare committee understand the meaning of the term 'end of life care'? But I kept my mouth tight shut until I sat and chatted with one lady. She misses her son, who lives a long way away. The light for her is a visit from him.
So I drew her a tunnel and after snapping this picture I added a photo of her boy, smiling at the end of the tunnel.
She is delighted with it and has thanked me many times.
It's my weekend off work and you would think that I would find time to sew and although there has been time, very little has been done. In fact today, Sunday is the only day I have lifted a needle. I finished my August Churn Dash blocks.
And also cut out the blues for Septembers blocks.
I looked at my scrappy triangle blocks, the foundation papers are there, ready to begin sewing, but that didn't appeal. On Monday I had completed sewing the last of my Christmas ornaments, so I've put them in a safe place, I just hope I remember where that is in a few weeks time when I'm ready to mail the first ones out. LOL
I have my box of Lucy parts sat here by my chair, but have done nothing to them all week.
My sewjo is missing...
Have you seen it?
