Progress report

My progress this last 10 days has been hampered by my mislaying my specs... they were finally run to ground in my raincoat pocket - which was the first place I looked (not).

We have weathered a snow fall this week, not enough for a snowball fight - but sufficient for a picturesque covering.

Hikers is starting to come together, working on this once a week is working for me, maybe I should revue my rotation from 10 hours to weekdays. The change may be beneficial.

Bookshelf progress was slow as I ran out of DMC thread - this is now resolved and I look forward to making progress again this week. I did run the iron over my work prior to taking a photo, I think the result gives a better impression of this work in hand.

The missing link...

Making good progress now on Bookshelf, however am frustrated because I cannot download any photos, my device cable has vanished. I have searched my desk, I have search the computer desk, I have look behind, underneath, beside and on top of all surfaces in the living room, nothing. I am now worried that I have thrown it out. BOTHER.

I don't believe it ...with apologies to Victor Meldrew

I am busy stitching away, as you do, when I discover that I have made a counting error at the beginning of my "bookshelf "row, one of the letters has a stitch missing and it has put me out by one stitch in the row ... so........all yesterdays stitching has been unpicked and I am no furhter forward. This is what you get when YOU DON'T COUNT PROPERLY.

Bookshelf progress

This is the progress so far on LHN Bookshelf. A very clever birthday choice from Nicola, combining my two loves of reading and stitching... I am having trouble with stitching the gold thread on the book spines, maybe I should try a shorter thread length, any tips would be welcome.

2007 and all that!

I have made a stitching resolution - yes just the one, to try and stitch at least once a day. I am wondering if this goal may be a little ambitious, but I'll try.

I am busy making a "to do " list from the stach of WIPs I have in my house...and also a list of promise for me projects.

Happy New Year
