I heard from Wendy Jo (no blog) that she received the pinkeep that I made for her in the HOE
pinkeep exchange. It is, of course, a Little House Needleworks
freebie stitched on 32ct lambswool linen with DMC threads. The backing fabric was kindly donated by Lynn, a member of my Stitch-n-Bitch group (thanks Lynn). It was exactly the right shade and almost looks like brickwork!
I enjoyed my 'stitch day' yesterday although it was more of a stitch afternoon as I didn't settle until gone mid-day. I did manage to finish off the stitching on my gifts - the one over one on the backs took ages and I now need to finish them but I need some help making some twisted cording - any volunteers?
My tortoise, Tommy, awoke from his hibernation yesterday. He is quite late this year as he usually sleeps until mid-March so obviously the bad weather made him snuggle down for a lie-in! When I checked his box he didn't appear to be awake but all of a sudden he popped his head up so I lifted him out onto the grass in the warm sunshine. He spent the rest of the day checking out his territory. He does go back in his box overnight until the weather is really warm and then he stays out 24-7. I will post a photo later. Tortoises make ideal pets - they don't mess up indoors and sleep for 6 months of the year - if only husbands/kids were as ideal!
Thanks for visiting
