Winter Posy

There's not a lot to see in the garden today but I picked this small posy -

I made a jigsaw from the photo and I'm doing it this afternoon.
Most days I spend some time "jigsawing" on line as a change from crafting and word games.

Not a lot of blogging recently!
Days have ticked over, indoors because of the snow, knit, stitch, watch tennis when it's on TV, eat & drink coffee (mostly, but a few glasses of wine as well!), take a few photos from windows or doorstep, and generally pass the time quite happily.
This is a textile postcard I stitched - "Snowy Garden"
It represents Winter Flowering Jasmine amongst swirls of snow - a quilted background with embellishment.

Wishing all my friends a happy and healthy New Year .....

I am resigned to lots more sitting and enjoying crafting each day, as before.
The spine injections I had in December, after so many months of other treatments, still haven't improved my mobility a lot - but at least I don't have a hospital appointment for three whole months.
I haven't knitted for about 25 years - saw a book about knitting squares for blankets, and started to explore different textures in knitting.
I doubt I'll make enough squares for a blanket though!
These are all in the same wool - a nice light cream - sorry the colours and shadows here are so poor.
It's quite homely sitting by the fire knitting.
