While the rest of the UK is under a deluge of snow and ice this is all we have to show! Now you can see why I was so excited on my birthday when we actually had 5/6" of snow *here*
. For some reason this little corner of the UK always misses out. Last year when Britain had snow, Ken left for work on a construction site some 35 miles away and returned home a couple of hours later saying he had been 'snowed off'. I wasn't too sure I believed him as the skies were blue and the sun was shining!
And talking of snow, has anyone wondered that some blogs, such as Dovile
's, show pictures of their stitching laid on the snow. Does their precious stitching not get wet?
Beatrix is definitely on the home stretch. The outer vine/leaf border of the large motif in the top right hand corner is done and the flower inside is part-stitched. Once this is done I will only have the personalization to do and ... voilà! Or should that read 'phew'!
For those of you watching the Travelling Sisterhood, do not despair, it is not forgotten and I kitted it up this morning although don't forget I cannot put in a stitch until the dreaded Bea is done. Hopefully, I will enjoy TS a lot more than Bea and she will fly off my needle a lot quicker.
