After a VERY late night last night, I’m proud to present “Is That All?” finally completed.
The backstitching was a little fiddly, but to be honest I’m a little out of practice as I have been stitching so many projects recently that do not require any backstitching at all. I really didn’t want to stop once I had started though, because as soon as this was finished Claire and I are starting our next SAL, which is South Seas Lace. Roll on next Thursday! I’m definitely paying for the late night now though, but it was well worth it!
Claire has finished her’s too, pop over to her blog to see her pic, so there’s happy dancing on both sides of the English Channel today!
The new project isn’t anything to do with stitching (for a change!). Hopefully, on Sunday this little bundle will be joining our pet family.
This is a quick pic taken by my sister Sheila, who works at her local vet’s practice. She phoned me this morning to tell me that she needed a home. She emailed me this picture, I emailed it on to Phill, he said yes (after just a little bit of persuading LOL).
We’ll be driving up to meet Sheila halfway between her place and our place to pick her up. Perfect timing really as I am off work for the whole of next week so will be able to settle her in to her new home.
I am a little behind on my blog reading again – I normally read them during my lunch hour at work, but I have been without my computer for the last two days as it died on Tuesday afternoon. I have beenn floating around the office using whichever PC was free at the time, so I had very limited internet access for a couple of days. My PC is now fixed and I’m back “home” at my desk. It’s surprising how hard it was to work at someone else’s desk, it completely threw me for a loop and everything seemed to take me twice as long for some reason LOL
