Stop awhile to share in this adventure with our needles...

are par for the course at this time of the year. Being an asthmatic - this does sometimes brings with it the added bonus of a chesty cough (as now)and a lethargy that is hard to shrug off. Progress on my stitching has been minimal - sleep has intervened and I have taken full advantage!

Bring back the liberty bodice may not have been the most attractive of garments, but it kept you warm - maybe I should try for a revival!

Another finish

I managed to complete this pillow and finish it ready to post out to my firend just in time for her birthday. It ia a Trilogy degin, and I used the stipulated threads and fabric. This is the second time I have stitched this and find it makes into a great little gift. I feel that now all the madness has finished I must get back to some sort of rotation. What to choose - that will be fun.

This is the finished pillow I made for the Aion Harvest exchange, my recipient was Andrea. I was really pleased with the way this went, and will be more confident in future, when it comes to my finishing.

Progress on a pillow for a stitcher friends birthday next week - need to get the time manager out here as I seem to be way behind with everything, and I have more time at home! Is this because I know I will have time tomorrow, or I am just making excuses for being a lazy piece?

Having spent Saturday on a field at our local show, and Sunday catching up on laundry and the like - plus jobs nornmally done on said show day...I am now seriously behind with my stitching and will have to knuckle down to it. It also happens to be Book Group this evening - my choice this month (84 Charing Cross Road) so I can't not go! Looks like I'll be burning the midnight oil for the rest of the week.

Best laid plans...

Today had been earmarked as a stitching day, its already lunchtime and I haven't lifted a needle yet! So much for my good intentions. Maybe this afternoon will see some progress on my current WIP.

Looking in the TV listings to see if there was a decent film on today, would you believe 84 Charing Cross Road is on this pm - I have just (like yesterday) finished this book! It is a contender for my BCC on the 10th! Maybe it was "meant".

Return of the wanderer!

Having spent the last week soaking up the sun on a Dorset beech, we are back home, with all he jobs to catch up an that a holiday invariably brings - ie the washing and ironing...and yes the weather is awful, low clouds, and soo cold!

Started a Hertitage kit when away, Hikers from the shilouettes series, it is to be a christmas present for my sister and her husband, and as I am not a quick stitcher, starting now seemed like a good idea!

A new beginning...
