I’ve been stitching away on Ellen and enjoying every minute of it. Why it took me so long to start to stitch this is beyond me but, now that I have, I’m so glad that I did! Then again, I have more than enough in my stash to say that about a lot of things that I have yet to get around to stitching! I did have a slight blip towards the end of last week with one of those moments when I started to doubt using WDW Williamsburg Red instead of GA Old Red Paint. With still no sign of my skein of Old Red Paint to be found here my dear stitching friend Siobhan popped an extra skein that she had into an envelope and sent it to me (thank you, Siobhan!). I stitched a second flower head so I could compare the two. There was very little difference, only a miniscule difference in the shade if I’m honest but, me being me, I felt more comfortable going with GA’s Old Red Paint. So, I undid the one flower head that I had done in Williamsburg Red and re-did it in Old Red Paint. Would anyone have noticed if I’d stayed with Williamsburg Red? Probably not but I’m back in my comfort zone!!!!

This week it goes back to just DH and myself at home as DS#2 leaves tomorrow to head back to university in the north-east of England. My stitching plans for this week are to keep working on Ellen and try to get back to these …...
One of my stitching goals last year was to stitch one of the PSS Quaker Calendars each month. I managed to stitch nine of them but ground to a halt in October. Given that I’ve only three left to stitch it would be a shame not to keep going so I’m planning on picking up where I left off. Oh, and also in the mix will be my January Christmas ornament.
As another week starts hope all is well in your part of the world.
Until next time…….
