The silk thread I had ordered from Vicki Clayton
arrived this morning. I had planned on using this for the Beatrix Potter sampler, which sampler I have been wanting to stitch for ages but couldn't decide on fabric and floss. When I stitched on Mindi's QFRR
using Vicky's Raisin Wine, I just knew this was the colour I wanted for BP but as my QFRR piece (along with Edgar
's and Rowyn
's) has gone missing and we are thinking that a re-stitch is the way to go, I am wondering whether to use this gorgeous colour for my re-stitch. Decisions, decisions! Also in my package was some 1/2 yard 'tags' and some cloisonne frogs (which I couldn't resist).
is stitching up quickly now I have forgone the SAL. I seem to be the only one stitching and posting progress and as I was getting rather lonely I have decided to just get on with it now. I will post a picture in the next few days.
I am really looking forward to Sunday as my Stitch-n-Bitch group have an all-day stitch-in with a 'bring a dish' lunch. Maybe there will be more stitching than bitching but who knows :o). I'll take my camera along so expect some 'action' shots next week!
This week I harvested one of the patio bags in which I have been growing potatoes. Not the biggest of crops but they did have a lovely flavour! My tomatoes were doing well but we have had awful weather this past week with really high winds and rain which has certainly played havoc with my garden. I am beginning to think that my first effort of gardening may be the last.
Have a good weekend
Thanks for visiting
