Since last I blogged I have started this one……
Yes, another that I have loved but which has been languishing in my stash pile for a while, BBD's Pins & Tulips Pincushion from their booklet Thank You, Sarah Tobias. This one I’m stitching on some 32ct Puck Elne of Lynnyn linen that I had left after stitching Ellen Birdseye. I’m using the suggested threads and, given how quickly this is stitching up (only started it yesterday) I’m hopeful of a quick finish.
DH and I had a lovely time when we were away. We first of all spent a couple of days with our eldest son and then we visited with our daughter. It was good to see them both and spend a little bit of time with them. DS#1 plans to come home later on this month for a week so we’ll see him again soon. DD has no plans for a visit home in the next few months so it could be nearer to Christmas before we see her again.
We also spent a day here – Hay-on-Wye. This is a lovely town, full of second-hand bookshops and, if you love books, you’ll be in heaven! Here are just a few of them.
I loved how so many of the shops had comfy chairs that you could sit in and read. There was even one that had a resident tabby cat! No-one minded if you wanted to spend ages browsing and now that we’ve visited DH and I would love to go back again for the Festival that’s held each year at the end of May. Aside from bookshops, look at this gorgeous view from the car park?!
And finally, before I go, remember the Christmas ornament stitching that wasn’t really happening last time I blogged?!?! Well, I do have a finish to report for July…… this one …..
Yes, one that was a very quick, easy stitch but I do love these JBW Christmas designs. I plan on trying to finish this one myself – let’s see how I do with a triangular shape!!!!!
Hope all is well in your part of the world. Thanks for dropping by and please don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I’m always thrilled to hear from you.
Until next time ……
