I have my first update on Henry and his wives...... now don't get too excited as it is only day 2. I started it last night and soon discovered I was 8 DMC thread colours short..... So ordered them today. I decided to start on Henry himself.... his bottom half!! So here is the bottom of his grey/blue tunic and the start of his red cloak. You can also make out one flesh coloured hand! The bit of grey down the bottom left is part of his leg.
I thought as it was on 18ct aida I may struggle to see it at night but it has been ok so far, my only hinderance has been how tired I am. Stuart still has a really bad cough which is keeping us both awake at night..... so I feel a bit like a zombie at the moment. Luckily my cold didn't get any worse. I hope I get a better nights sleep tonight.
This morning I took my mom her cushion present (wrapped) and card around ready for her birthday tomorrow. She wasn't expecting a present as I have said we will go shopping soon for her to pick something she wants. She said "I thought you hadn't bought me anything" I said "I haven't!" that confused her..... can't wait to see her reaction when she opens it.
Tomorrow evening at club I intend to take one of my Christmas gifts, I think I'll start my bookmark for my Auntie.
