stitching purple

i needed a break again for a while so i stitched purple silk mermaid this week for a while..
on top of the health stuff i posted about in my last post on sunday/monday ( can’t remember which it was)
My partners brother passed away unexpectedly last thursday and the house has been in a fair bit of upheaval and sadness in the past week.. he was 32 years old and living in japan and paul had not seen him for 4 years .. there is lots of details and stuff, but i won’t explain them all here, Emma, paul’s sister had only just left there after a holiday with him and she is now back there less than a week later  attending a service and collecting his ashes ( moving a body internationally was a nightmare proposition), and pauly is not coping very well…

so anyway i have had issues with concentration re stitching so went with non commissioned stuff for a while and stitching purple seemed the best bet..
i have also knitted a 1/4  of a pretty red lace scarf for Pauls mum i so need a digital camera as now i will have three knitted pieces to share by next week
anyways i am working on purple silk for the back ground SAl on the BB this weekend and thought i should take a scan of the before..
purple silk

i ordered myself some 2 ply 50 % silk 50 % merino for the Knittery and oh boy it feels amazing.. not sure what to knit… but what ever it will be it will be soft! i am totally in love with it , i keep stroking it
my next stitching purchase will be the Xmas ornie issues on Just cross stitching but i am not sure where to order it from … as in which of my online stores to go with… i think it works out a little more expensive to order in aussie, but i would feel bad ordering something internationally i can easily get in aus..

a special thankyou to all my dear friends who have emailled and ecarded me in the past week , sorry i have not replied to most but massive hugs to you all and thankyou nancy for the flowers paul was blown away by your kindness
