In the work basket

This is a WIP called "Sally Spencer Sampler", a Birds of a Feather design, I have restarted. The colours are very much my colours, especially the scarlet.
I am posting progress here, as it has been languishing in my "basket" for a few months, and needs some encouragement to aid its completion.
I may have been "sleeping" lately, but as you can see I haven't been idle!

This is my progress on "Little Spot Sampler" a Drawn Thread design. I am working on the Queen stitch and Hungarian motif. I did have a major counting crisis, that I hope I have solved. This is a delightful project, and a quick stitch for me.

Unexpected culinary stash

What a surprise - this morning the parcel carrier arrived with a parcel. (well he would wouldn't he!) I wasn't expecting anything, had only just put an order in to Sewandso, so it couldn't be that - something for the WI then? well no to that was a Le Creuset casserole dish, I have won in a competition! It made my day.

Rain Rain go away

I feel like Dr. Foster, just stepping out of the house requires: Macintosh, umbrella and wellington boots...

I realise that we need rain, for our gardens, rivers, etc. but I do think that maybe we have had enough. 4 days is really quite sufficient, thank you - time to turn the clouds off, and let us see well at least a foot or two of blue sky - please!

Having said that, there have been some wonderful "greys".
