I am using this blog to try to pressurise myself to stagger to the finish line with the aforesaid monster. I have managed to do the odd bit of applique here and there but it’s amazing just how much you can procrastinate when there is something you really don’t want to do. I have done a stack of knitting – a coat – (yes really, a whole coat), a huge shawl for a present (which though I say so myself was just beautiful) two bandanas for sons who along with me are are fighting the cold spell outside (minus 19 as I write and that’s without windchill). I have taken up machine patchwork after what must be an eight year lull. I have sorted out all my Oakshotts and folded them neatly into colour blocks. I have cooked like a gastro-chef and finished my christmas shopping. So here are two pictures of the unfinished demon. Please bully me.
