First of all I’d like to thank everyone who left a comment to my last post, I really do appreciate them all. I joined a Yahoo Group this week called Stitcher’s Heaven which I had read about in Maggie’s blog. Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming and there are some amazing stitchers there, I spent ages going through the photo albums on the group and found quite a few new designs to add to my wish list!
I have finished part 2 of Grand Marquoir, a little behind schedule really as part 3 has already been released. I’m going to try my best to keep on track with part 3 and have it finished in good time for part 4.
That’s about all I have to show this week stitching wise, as I’ve been working solely on Grand Marquoir but next week I’m getting back into my rotation so I should have a lot more pics for you.
Following our Lettres a mon Chat stitch along Claire and I are starting another SAL some time in May. Pop along to Claire’s blog and see her Lettres which looks great, she has stitched hers using greens. Our new SAL will be “Is That All?” I’ve had the kit hidden at the back of a cupboard for a few weeks now, to stop me starting it LOL.
I’m taking part in the Totally Useless Stitchalong and today is the day for everyone taking part to post their pics.
Lots and lots of reds in mine, thanks to Lettres and Grand Marquoir, I think it definitely needs a bit of variation in there!
It’s a beautifully sunny day here, so we’re going to spend a bit of time in the garden today, plus we’re having our new waterbed delivered tomorrow so we have to dismantle our current bed and give the room a spring clean. I dread to think how much dust is going to be under there! I went shopping with my mum yesterday and bought some new bedding and curtains for the bedroom so we’ll put them up this afternoon. I’ve already washed the new bed linen and it’s on the line drying nicely. Ironically I slept most of last night on the sofa because Phill was just snoring so loudly. I didn’t want to be appearing in Court this morning for murder, so thought it was safer to sleep on the sofa. However, I now have a horrible pain in my neck where I slept awkwardly. I’m thinking of getting some of those strips that you put over the bridge of your nose to see if they help at all, but any other suggestions would be appreciated! I think I will pick up some earplugs as well LOL
