Wednesday marked the half way point in the year, and what a strange year 2020 has been so far.
Who would have dreamt at the start of the year that half of the worlds population would been asked to stay at home and put on lockdown to save lives. At times it all seems so unreal, thankfully everyone I know has stayed safe and healthy, I don't personally know anyone who has had Covid19 although you have only to watch the daily updates to know that it is indeed real.
We can only hope that the situation continues to improve and that the next six months will be better.
Like a lot of others I'm still not venturing out too far, I still only go food shopping when I need to, and try to go when I think It will be less busy, I do get nervous when there are too many people about and have come across people who seem to have trouble with keeping their distance.
In a shop this week a lady asked if she could squeeze past me, I said no, we are supposed to keep a distance, she gave me a look and said, well I've got a mask on! That's why I don't wear a mask, or gloves, to me they give a false sense of security. I've lost count of the times I've seen people with gloves on but still touching their face, (or in one case, pulling them off with their teeth!!) or a mask pulled down on their chin so they can speak! I have nothing against masks or gloves and would definitely use both if I had to use public transport but I'm more aware without them.
Anyway, doom and gloom aside, all this time at home has given me more time to do all the crafty things. Last week I finished my July Calendar Girl. I still love these girls, I think so far January and April are my favourite
These are all my finishes in the first six months of 2020.
Loved making these rainbows, and I used up a lot of my little scraps of yarn in the process.
Mine is still hanging on the front door
I've enjoyed all my stitching this year, but I especially enjoyed stitching that cute snowman
I didn't think I'd done much knitting until I went though my photos. Can you have too many dishcloths do you think 😉
I'm joining in with Jolly July this year, stitching Christmas charts throughout the month. I made a very small start on Jacobs stocking yesterday and have chosen ornaments to stitch for the grand-kids. Apologies to those who don't like to speak about Christmas until December but most of my posts in July will be Christmas related 🎅🎄🎅
Still no news on the job situation. I was called into another meeting on Monday, a very short meeting in which I was told I would get a call within 48 hours with the outcome. I thought that was it, I came home and was really upset for the rest of the day. But there was no call until today and that was to say that there is a board meeting tomorrow and the final decision will be made then. I know they usually have the board meetings in the mornings, so hopefully around lunch time they will let me know, I hate being in limbo.
See you soon, take care
