Hi everyone! First of all, thank you for the lovely comments on my first attempt at a floss tag and my finished BBD Summer Basket. I plan on having this one framed, I haven’t taken anything to the framer for months (could even be the start of this year) as I have managed to do my own little bit of framing when I’ve needed too but this one I want to take.
I didn't seem to find much time for stitching in the last week but I have started this one …..
Crows, Corn and Cats by Chartmakers which is now, I’m pretty certain, OOP. The suggested threads are DMC but I’ve used WDW Cadet for filling in the house rather than the DMC 926. Years ago I stitched this as a gift and put it on the back burner to stitch for myself at some point. Finally I’ve got to it!! This will be finished in no time at all as it’s a small design. I’m stitching it on an unknown scrap of overdyed that I had in my stash.
Well, there’s nothing like new stash to make a girl feel good - and to help forget that another year has passed. Yes, a birthday last month and time to treat myself to a birthday order from Lois at Elegant Stitch! In amongst this little lot will be my next start, one where I need to put my thinking cap on as I want to use different colours.
Also in the package ……
CC Wild Berries so that I’m good to go when the notion strikes to start stitching BBD’s It’s Berry Time. The Silk ‘n Colors is Autumn Twilight for BBD’s Sarah’s ABC Pincushion and the Caron Waterlillies Sable is for …… something I now can’t remember!!!! Seriously, I opened the package, looked at the thread and thought ‘now what chart did I order that for’?!?!?! It will come to me. Some day I’ll have a light bulb moment and remember!!!!!
We headed to Leeds over the weekend to leave off DS#2 who’s starting his M.Sc at the university there. It also gave us a chance to see DD. She’s been living in Leeds for the last two years but, wouldn’t you know it, she ended up moving the week before DS#2 arrived! She has changed jobs and is now living just north of Manchester. It’s not that far, only about a 50 min drive, so they can still see each other from time to time. She came over Saturday evening and the four of us went out to eat. Then Sunday morning DH and I went to see her in her new apartment. It’s lovely and I like that I now can picture where she is. After that we headed for home and now it’s back to just DH and me rattling around here for a while.
Well, I think that’s about it for this time. Thanks for your continued visits and comments and I hope all is well with you and yours.
Until next time ……
