sleepy kitty

That's what me and the kitty use most of our time doing - sleeping
(Yes the kitty is lying in a bunch of my clothes ,a towel and a shawl - probably very soft;) )

leaf painting

 work in progress
End result

The colours in the two pictures differ because of change in sunlight/ indoorlight

It was real fun making, calming.
Started by outlining the objects from some of my botanical books
Then later I painted them while having, again, the botanical books open

Kitty


She is both cute
 (when she lies her head on my hands and purrs),
and annoying
( most annoying when I try to keep on sleeping in the morning,
and she thinks it is high time I got up and entertained her )

cowl


I made this cowl for my cousin for her birthday last year.
Knitted in the round.
Both ends have been folded back, and stitched to the backside.

cardigan and mood


Embellishment on a cardigan, made some time ago.

----------
Mood still low.
Been talking to a nurse and a doctor, and first of all,
all I can do is to wait for the medicin to start working ( 3 weeks more).
Which is a long time if you feel miserable.
As I said, I talked it over with clever folk, and am going to try to get some sensible sleep with the aid of sleeping pills, and trying not to sleep during the day.
So now "all" I gotta do is to keep on going.
So boring.

cards

Been making some cards

-----
Mood is quite low, am hoping that I can get some more antidepressant soon.
It is extremely hard, to not want to do anything. - and boring, and so sad.

sewing basket

 Back when my grandmother died,
we stood with the huge task of taking care of her house and belongings.
And it was, an enormous task.
But looking trough all of her things was quite exciting.
One of the things I found was this sewing basket, or what it is called.
Anyhow some years ago I took it apart to sand it down... but I never finished.

Now it is done however, and I put on some new pretty knobs.
It now holds all of my embroidery thread.

green gloves


I made these while at the hospital.
They were real fun but also a challenge.
I bought the yarn 5 years ago. 
It has been used to knit up 2 different tops/jackets 
- which both failed miserably!
The fingers are not equally long, even though I did count rows.
But it is the first time I tried, so I guess its all right.




My favourite saying:
practice makes perfect  
Which you can really apply to all areas of life
I try anyhow, so I don't get too disappointed.. which I often do..

The weather is, by the by, quite nice and cool :)

stribed legwarmers with cable


I made this pair while at the hospital, and I really enjoyed it.
I knitted them like with socks where you can knit both at a time
( which makes it the more likely that I should finish a project like that)
I have made them from my head and it was a real challenge, but fun.
They are really close fitting, so not some you wear on the outside of your pants.

I have finally been at a meeting  where I am to get treatment for depression, for the next ½ year.
Very odd to be taken serious...
