It seems to have been a long week, Stuart was back at school Monday but the girls didn't return until Wednesday. This meant a change of routine again and early mornings. So tonight I am pretty tired!! I always like to take a photo on theri first day of term and this is one of this years!! I can't believe they are entering Year 10 and have only 2 years of compulsory schooling left!
I ordered the "Pirates" chart off eBay the other day, while I was browsing I saw a Bent Creek Row chart - Summer Row - with no bids at 99p, so I made a bid and won!! I will save this to do after Christmas in the hope that we have a summer next year. The weather here this week has been awful, so much rain. I have even put the heating on for a while tonight as I was just sooo cold!
I also had another buy earlier this week - see below
Laura and I saw this book in a local shop a few weeks ago and it had some lovely designs in it. The one on the front is gorgeous and there are lots of little fairies, which Laura said she'd like to have a go at stitching one! But it was £12.99 in the shop and I didn't fancy spending that much so when I got home I checked on Amazon and managed to pick up a second hand copy for just under £5 (including postage) As you can see from the picture it is in excellent condition. Not sure which design to start first!!
As for any stitching over the last few days, well I have managed to do some of my Warwickshire Map but the symbols are so fiddly, lots of colour changes, lots of back stitching etc and I have to look at 2 charts at a time to stitch them. So progress has been slow but I have done some. I will update you with a photo at the weekend.
I have still been getting my "Christmas Wish" stitching out occasionally and here is an update on that.
I'm going to continue on my Mom's Sampler tonight but I may not get very far as I think I may be asleep early......
