I'm Back

Hello everybody. (I was going to say "Good Morning" but it may be afternoon where you are, or afternoon when you read this so I stuck with "Hello"!)

Sorry I've not been on here recently. I've been looking after my father who had a stroke last year. My mum went to a wedding in Estonia and he couldn't make it so we've been living up there and they don't have the internet.

However, I've not been idle. I took Celtic Winter up with me and have been working away on that and I've also completed parts 3 and 4 and started part 5 on How Does Your Garden Grow. So HDYGG now looks like this:-

I was a little worried about doing the rhodes hearts (the yellow bits in the strip that goes across). I have been reading Rachael's blog and she said she struggled with them and has given up. I've always admired Rachael's work (especially her hardanger) so I was worried that if she struggled so would I. I did have to frog the first one a couple of times but I got there eventually and the others seemed to flow from there.
