Wings of an Angel

Not much progress on Peace Angel but I am enjoying working this piece. Dental surgery recovery is coming along slowly. Gum and bone problems required total extraction and stitches were removed last week. Now it's just healing time until the implants can be inserted. My body just wants to rest and sleep but my mind & hands want to get busy with needlework and craft projects. It would be great to finish Peace Angel during my hiatis as a reminder of all I'm going through.

In the meantime, it's easier just to knit so I finished this scarf for youngest daughter. I loved this Andes Wool yarn when I bought it, but the striping does nothing for me. Daughter loves it cause her favorite color is green. I still have 2 skeins so I will try making a felted bag to see if the pattern excites me more.
And finally - a funny sent to me by my Aunt Eunice

Deb, your dental stuff sounds too painful. It is pretty hard to conentrate with all of that going on. I love the scarf! Take care!

It's good you can take your mind off things with crafting, though I'm sure it must be kind of difficult, too.

Hope you're feelin' better and crafting always makes any situation bearable. The scarf is lovely and the cable scarf came out fabulous as well... don't you just love those

That strip is great! Too bad the New York Knit Out and Crochet Too will cease to exist. The Parks Dept. raised the rate to the point where it was no longer feasible to do as a volunteer event. Shame.
