One to spare? I need a good one to keep up with my blogging!
Firstly - thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my Wedding Blessing finish, you are all wonderful friends :)
Secondly - Like everyone else, hearing about the death of one of our stitching friends has made me quite sad and reflective. Laura and family - my thoughts are with you :(
Blogging routine - I find I think of things to say, then by the time I get around to writing here, I forget them. I need to set myself in a daily, or every second day, routine. I'll have to think about that one, maybe first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
Family - everyone is back at school as of today - yeeeehahhhh! I am so happy to have a quiet house again for a few hours everyday, I love my kids, and love doing things with them - but gosh I love to have a bit of space as well.
I went for a bike ride this morning - back up the Maungato...s again for the first time in a month or two, not quite back to the fitness I was - but I made it to the top with only one stop, wow - I forget how beautiful the view is from up there - it is worth the sweat and hardwork just to see it - the sea looked like a lake this morning, just beautiful.
Stitching - I seem to have had lots of time and enthusiasm to stitch the last week or so, I love that! I've pretty much stuck to my rotation except I started the Mirabilia RR on Tuesday instead of picking up Rose Arbour - I started to have a wee panic attack about whether I'd left myself enough time to stitch it. As it turns out I've nearly finished it and will probably have a couple of days spare ... woohooo! :)
Here are some pictures -
A couple ornaments from the Ornament RR - I can't remember designers etc, and the details are all the way down the other end of the house ... and I'm just too lazy to get up to get them! LOL
and an update on Celtic Summer, I finally got to stitch on this again on Monday night - I didn't think I got much done but when I compare it to the last progress picture I can see where I've filled in quite a bit. I just worked on the front green/gold part of her dress.
I'm off to have a quiet 30mins or so in front of Oprah with my stitching, before the tribe get home from school.
