Lazy day

Only a short posting tonight, no pictures because I haven't taken anymore!
Thursday night went well, the production was a collection of some of the Brothers Grimm tales. Me and a couple of the other members of the Parent Support Group served the refreshments in the interval, but it wasn't too busy so managed to get home by 8.15pm.
Been feeling unwell myself today.... seems Becky's illness has passed onto me so felt very lifeless all day. Therefore did little work and quite a bit of sewing! My fairy is looking really good and I can't wait to show it tomorrow, there is a lot of back stitch yet to do but otherwise most of it is complete. So also spent some time doing Julie's stitching and some of my 3rd snowman Christmas card!
One thing I am loving about reading other people's blogs is discovering new designs/charts etc that I hadn't heard of before. Last night I looked through "Elizabeth Designs" and liked lots of those. I seem to be drawn more to the designs that feature a slight mixture of stitches and threads etc. Problem is my "want list" will keep growing and growing......
Back tomorrow with more news and pictures I hope!

Sorry to hear that you're not feeling quite well now. Hopefully it passes quickly and your household is all feeling totally better soon. Your Fairy was looking so pretty in your last post, can't wait to see an update. I've done a couple of the Elizabeth Designs (Haunted House and Holiday House), and they are a fun stitch.

Ginnie, I hope you will be feeling better soon. It's no fun to be sick.

I had a look at your wish list, and saw a village of Derwentwater on it. I've been working for ages on the Kent village in these series. Progress is really really slow. Actually I started working on it for my mum, who is from Kent, and after she died I put it away. Recently I picked it up again, as one of my kids found it.
Those patterns are beautiful, very detailed!

Can't wait to see your fairy!

(who should start making pictures too)
