Oh well, at least blogland is always there, waiting for us to return - so here I am today and I will endeavour to stop my whinging and complaining and show you some stitching instead!
Let's start with my March TUSAL update:
Home ORTs on the left, train ORTs on the right:
Here are all of this year's ORTs so far:
Now, my FNSI - two new projects (why oh why do I keep starting new projects? I have so many WIPs and UFOs already!)
Ebony and Ivory
Ebony and Ivory
Tempting Tangles Designs
29 ct White Evenweave
Instead of the suggested Dinky Dye silk threads of Black Coral and Charcoal
I am using:
CC Nighty Nite (dark purplish-black)
WDW Grape Ice (light purple)
I must admit, I am really thrilled with my progress on this one so far - I am very pleased with both my fabric and colour choices.
My second new start is:
Designer: Lilli Violette
28 ct Mocha linen
Using suggested DMC threads
I am, also doing some special stitching and finishing for my Friends Swapaway (which I am far behind on also - sorry Butterfly and Kim) but I will keep that secret for now.
Yesterday morning, when I got up this is what I saw from my back deck:
hot air balloons in the far distance.
And this morning, my rose bushes were looking very pretty:
... and I wish to plant some more in this bare garden bed.
Lastly, my baking mojo came back this afternoon. I made some Coconut and honey popcorn (oh so easy to make) and some Coconut and golden syrup cookies (both used coconut oil, which apparently is the new big superfood).
Well, that is all for me for now!
Off to do some more stitching and some blog reading.
