I managed to finish two of my heart coasters.
I'm not sure whether I like them or not. I am going to bag up the rest of the yarn, cut-out plastic canvas and directions and decide later.
I started working on them to have something that didn't bother my thumb, but these actually made my thumb hurt. I did come up with a neat way to thread my needles from now on. I can't hold the needle in order to thread it so I have started sticking it in a cork.
Holding the cork doesn't make me pinch my thumb and forefinger together which is what makes my thumb joints painful. This is not a needle that needs to be sharp so I don't worry about sticking it in the cork. I sometimes also use the cork when holding the plastic canvas. I still seem to pinch it too hard though.
My MIL gave my husband 4 seed wreaths for the birds in our back yard. Hubby laid the first one in the bird bath and it was quickly gobbled up. He hung the second one this week from a hanger on one of our plant hooks. It was quite entertaining to watch the squirrels try to eat the seeds.
Do you see the squirrel on the bottom of the wreath?
Here he/she is hanging from the wreath eating it prize.
The squirrel on the ground to the left ate what its friend knocked to the ground.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I am making good progress on my secret stitching. I have this week off from my public school job, so I should get a lot of stitching done. Fingers crossed that I don't get distracted.
Thanks for stopping by!
