It’s been a very busy week at work and at home so even though I have some progress pictures I haven’t done that much stitching in the last few days. I did work on Cirque des Carreaux on Wednesday and the more I stitch this design the more I like it!
Thursday was Lettres SAL day with Claire. We are at almost exactly the same place on this design, she has stitched one more letter than me 🙂
Finally, I had a day off on Friday because we had a busy weekend in sight. Phill’s mum was 75 on Thursday and his brother and sister in law were coming down on Saturday to celebrate, with us all going out for a meal last night. We had a great time with lovely food, especially the Vanilla Cheesecake!
Phill also made a bit of work for himself when he offered to do some work in our spare bedroom, which is little more than a box room really. At the moment there are odds and ends of furniture in there, the ironing board (which doesn’t get used that often 😉 and all of my cross stitch stuff. The room is so full of stuff that it’s hard to find anything. I have been trying to organize my stash a little better so that it doesn’t take me so long to find everything so Phill put his thinking cap on and has planned a craft room for me! We have bought some kitchen units in a lovely walnut colour, and some black worktop and he’s going to put them up for me today. I can’t wait to see it done as I’m going to have so much room in there I’ll be able to organise everything exactly how I want it.
Today I am out all day, my mum and dad are picking me up at about 10 o’clock and we are driving to see my sister Sheila who is staying at a cottage in West Wales for the weekend. Today is Sheila’s birthday and I have a little suprise for her, which is safe to post here as she doesn’t have her computer with her. The suprise is the Hearts and Flowers tuffet which I finished up on Friday.
I’m looking forward to seeing how she is getting along with her HAED project and I am taking a few of my WIPs with me for her to see in real life and also a few goodies I found yesterday when I was clearing out the bedroom ready for Phill to start work in there today.
Have a great weekend !!
