End of term today, I have a very happy house.... Stuart is an English teacher and has finished today but is working next week at Summer School, girl's finished for 6 weeks....... Only me going to work over the next month and half!! Oh well as I don't start work until 10.30am I can have a little extra time in bed in a morning!
Started a new little "Freebie" today, I was browsing several sites last night that I had seen mentioned on other blogs when I came across samplergirl. I really liked a couple of her free charts, there's one called "By the Sea" quoting Jane Austen and then "Cup of Cheer". I decided to just go for it and started cup of cheer this morning. I had some 28 ct evenweave in my stash, I picked the colours I wanted to use and started to stitch. I'm pleased with how it looks so far. What I don't know is what to do with it when I have finished. I would like to make it into something different but need some ideas......... Any suggestions gladly received??
I spent a while stitching "View from the Terrace" last night and I'm so pleased I swapped to this for my rota. I really enjoyed stitching it and can't wait to get this finished. In anticipation of finishing it soon I ordered my fabric for my Victoria Sampler today. The pattern suggests 28 ct Cashel Linen in platinum, I decided to go with the recommendation and have order a "fat Quarter" so I should have some spare! That should arrive in the next day or two, can't wait!
Now I have a nice peaceful evening of stitching ahead as Stuart has gone out with some work friends and the girls are watching a DVD.....
Perfect night!!! lol
