I always get in a tiz choosing a frame, but with Sharons help at my LNS i went for a simple green one in the end, i think it works well though as there's quite a lot going on in the design. I was a bit fed-up with sitting in so yesterday Mark took me a ride out to visit the Nimble Thimble Nr Oswestry, it was quite a jaunt but the journey is through beautiful countryside. Unfortunatly i didn't take my camera, i wish i had then i could have shown you how beautiful and green everything was.
The shop is not really in a town, it's in a setting with some other crafty like units, well more like log cabins really, on the edge of a village, in fact we could see no shops in the village at all, it was just outside a place called Knockin which had a little shop called The Knockin Shop!...well what else could you call it, lol.
I had a good old rumage around and came back with a couple of charts, The Weathered Garden, Bent Creek and one called Five Cats & a Canary from M Designs, which i'd never heard of but was quite cute!I also ordered Cirque des Triangles which i first came across on Sandra's blog, hers looks fantastic in red, (i may steal your colours for this one Sandra, lol.) when i get around to it.
The world and his wife seem to be starting Mary Wigham and i don't know weather to jump on the band wagon or not. What i won't be doing is stitching it on 32 count as i wouldn't be able to see the holes lol, so we'll see what else i can come up with. In the mean time i did buy the threads, i'm a couple short, but they will be following with my Cirque des Triangles next week.The sun was shining lovely here but as i type i can now hear thunder rolling in! so looks like running to get the washing in before the rain starts!
I've got a lovely quiet week ahead as Mark is off to Cyprus tomorrow morning to stay with his mum & Dad for a week, so that means i can spread out in the bed and no need to wear ear plugs at night, and whatever we fancy for tea, yayyyyy! Whatever gave you the impression i'm looking forward to next week!!
Until next time Tara-a-bit x
