Forest Goddess update


Here's my latest piccie. She's coming along slowly but surely. I'm trying to make sure I get a little bit of time on her most days, even if I only get a dozen or so stitches in!

Work is really hectic at the moment. Yesterday was pretty intense. I did an induction for 6 new members of staff. Our training room at work is right up the top in an attic room & as you know, heat rises. There is also a severe lack of air conditioning apart from on the shop floor area, and despite having all the windows open and a large fan on full blast in the training room, it was still stifling in there. One poor girl felt very nauseous and dizzy so went home half way through, and then once my colleague had taken over to do the 2nd part of the induction another girl was actually sick (thankfully not in the room!) so the induction was stopped & hopefully we will catch them up at a later date when its a bit cooler. Our office is also exceedingly hot, despite having 2 fans on all the time, the window wide open and the blind down to try & keep cool. I'm not really a summer person - I hate all this heat. I can cope with being cold: at least you can wrap up warm & have a hot drink!

Forest Goddess looks great - the fabric I chose is similar, so it is great to see yours, now I know the fabric is right, for sure!

Yikes, your company needs to invest in A/C or give you a decent place to hold your meetings :-( It sure has been a very hot summer for all of us, everywhere! I haven't seen a run of heat like this in New England since I was a kid.

It's looking fantastic so far!!

Ughhh...that training room sounds pretty awful in the heat. Hope you don't have to spend much time there!

Looking gorgeous! Love the fabric colour too!

Sorry to hear you have to work in such heat, it's certainly no fun and totally draining.

Hopefully the weather will break soon and you'll feel much more comfortable.

Your Forrest Goddess is coming nicely. I finished my Midsummer Night's fairy today. I have the design of Forrest Goddess already and the yarns, but I have not ordered the fabric (and pearls) yet. Yours look good.
