I'm Goin Where The Sun Keeps Shining!

I'm so behind with blogging & blog reading, i had every intention but the last few weeks just haven't been flowing right for me, i seem to be continually on catch up mode and have been generally out of sorts with most things, it happens sometimes though i suppose we all get fed up! I really had my heart set on finishing AT this week and at the framers this weekend but that just didn't happen, how can such a small amount of stitching take so long, i swear the chart was growing the more i stitched! As for Mary, well she was abandoned this week in favour of AT, but because i neglected her I'm taking her on holiday with me (hence the title of the post lol) she is as i type sitting in my suit case ready to travel. this is where i got to, page one all finished.

A couple of people wanted to know what threads I'm using, well it's good old DMC, 3777, 839 & 840. I'm stitching on 18 count with one thread. It's a bit strange stitching with one thread but I'm slowly getting used to it.

So it's off to Cyprus for me & Stevie this morning, it was a bit of a last minute thing, only booked it last week, our flight is at 9am, we are staying at mother & father in laws for 2 weeks! Mark isn't coming with us this time, he won't be able to have time off now until the end of October so it's just a girly thing this time. I will have Internet access while I'm away so may try and catch up a bit in the next 2 weeks.

Right, I'm off, we have to be out the house by 6.30, see you all after the 23rd, have a great weekend / week whatever you are up to and thank you all for your lovely comments, i really do appreciate them :-)

Have a wonderful time in Cyprus! Your Mary Wigham sampler is gorgeous. The color combination is very striking.

Your Mary Wigwam is looking amazing. I really love the colors you chose! It makes me want to do this one too! I've been printing the patterns, and someday, maybe I will get to it. Thanks for the colors that you used. I'm writing them on the pattern so that I can do something similar. This would look so great in my upstairs.

Have a wonderful holiday. I'm so jealous. Cyprus is beautiful. I've never been there, but my DH spent 3 months there with the military, so I've seen lots of pictures. I would love to go someday.
I'll be thinking of you. Have fun!
