Mini Archie’s April Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog

Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! I’ve made some progress on my socks since last I furtled, I’m a way off a finished pair of socks, but I’m just glad I can do some knitting some days, even if it is only for a few minutes each time. My elbow and shoulder are still sore, but I think my elbow is a bit better than it was, which is nice.

After putting up with watching telly and only watching telly (that’s harder than you think - what do other people do while watching telly if they don’t sew or knit? Eat sweets?!), I decided to see if I could do some pinning so fetched the Summersville blocks down and over about a fortnight, I pinned them in sets of three. Then, over the next week and a bit, I (machine) sewed the seams - I can only do four (that’s seams, not rows) before I have to stop, but all progress is welcome and I now have lots of seams to press. I suspect that will have to be done a (very) little at a time, too, so I’ll set the ironing board up upstairs (once my elbow and shoulder have forgiven me for the machine sewing) and see if I can do a strip each day or similar. Slow and steady and all that.

Mini Archie has been hiding each day and decided to see if he looked as good in purple as he thought he would…
Just as I finked: spiffing! I finks I needs some purple dungas next.

Linking up to the April Furtle 

If you're linking up, please add a link (one per person, please) to your blog post, which could contain: a mosaic of all you've made in the month, something you've made/started/worked on, a goal which you'd like to achieve in the next month (and then in next month's post you can reflect on that goal and set yourself another one - I find this particularly handy if I'm in the midst of a big project and finding the making of hundreds of blocks to be interminable), anything crafty you'd like to share. This isn't just for sewing or quilting, but is for all crafts so if you knit, make lace, make clothes, do anything which could come under the heading of 'craft', then please link up. Please visit the link immediately before and after you and leave an encouraging comment, and more if you can manage it - we all know that comments create joy, so let's spread some around. Also, please treat all the linked posts and their authors with respect - I want this to be an inclusive space for all crafters and crafts and all are welcome. If you're not sure if you're welcome or you belong, you do - this is by no means a closed space and if you want to join, then you are most welcome. If you need help linking up, please leave a comment and I will do my best to help. Please add the Furtling button to your blog post: copy the code below and paste it into your blog post - it should then magically appear when you publish your blog post (I'll do my best to help if you have any problems) and it will help people find the Furtling page with all the details of the link up.

To link up, go to the link at the bottom of this page and click on 'link up' (it's a blue button) and then add your link (website URL), a title (this could be your blog name but could also be something interesting to draw people to it (keep it clean!) if you prefer), and your email. This last one doesn't appear on the link (I will have access to it - I won't use it unless there's a problem and I need to contact you) so don't worry that you're about to share your email address with the world (or the handful of people who find this link), you're not! The link will remain open until 17th May; if you're seeing this post after this date, I'm afraid you can't link up to the April Furtle, but you can link next month if you like.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
