The Vicky Clayton
silk flosses I ordered for my 'miniature' stitching arrived this morning - such a choice of luscious reds. I took my Miniatures au Point du Croix book to Stitch-n-Bitch last Wednesday evening and now they all want a copy - I guess Amazon.fr will be inundated with orders for this book! My LNS rang me to say that the 55ct (!) linen she ordered in for our group has arrived and she has put some by for me so I will be collecting this later today. I doubt I will be stitching 1*1 on this!
I received Edgar
's Quaker Friendship RR
last Wednesday, I stitched my section and it is now back in the mail to Valerie in San Francisco. This is the last RR I need to stitch on so now I have to wait patiently for my RR to return home. Edgar chose the same Vicky Clayton Raisin Wine silk floss, together with Old Maid of the Soil for accents, for his RR that I chose to stitch my Beatrix Potter Quaker
sampler with, although his fabric is 32ct stitched 2*2 whereas Beatrix is 1*2 on 36ct. It's surprising how different they are.
I also made a start on a re-stitch of a Christmas gift that went missing (here
). Poor Wendy-Jo
was upset that the tiny cracker I had sent to her got lost in the mail so I said that I would either stitch her another or something completely different but she chose the cracker. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can send it to her.
I thought that my cold/flu bug had gone but no ... either that or I have another cold. This is the fifth week so hopefully it will clear up soon as it's definitely no fun sniffing, sneezing and coughing all the time.
Last night we had a power cut. You would think that, in the middle of the night, this wouldn't cause much of a problem but for some reason, when the power came back on it tripped our alarm system. So at 3.25am I was out of bed re-setting the alarm which in itself caused a problem as it wouldn't reset. Ken ended up turning off the electricity supply and disconnecting the system to stop the awful noise - I bet you are glad you don't live near us!
Thanks for visiting
