And It's a horrible damp and rainy night here, a perfect night to be sat indoors stitching:-)
DH has been here for the last 2 weeks since his last contract finished, getting under my feet and general doing..well, nothing really. Don't get me wrong, he works really hard, but when he gets time off that's exactly what he has, time off...from everything - I swear if I have to sit through another cookery programme I'll cut the TV cable! I really wouldn't mind but this is a man that never cooks, never, EVER!! So why the fascination with cookery programmes?beats me!
So, not a lot of stitching, just been taking myself off to bed early with my book and my hot water bottle :-)
Right, now I've got that little moan out of the way i do have photos to show you, photos of a finish no less!
Carriage House Samplings
It's been a while since I started this, and then started again because I didn't like my stitches
(yes I obsess that much!)
Don't you just love that crazy eyed fat cat!
And the not so little bird perched atop her head
( i decided it's a she cat :-)
I love the frame
Mark at Betty's did yet another wonderful job.
Here's a close up of it
And finally the whole thing
Last Wednesday was our second stitch club meeting. Unfortunately our numbers dwindled a bit and there was only six of us this time around, but it was actually quite a good night, being such a small number we got to know each other a bit better and it made for some good conversation.
One of the ladies was interested in my snap frame last month and this time she had bought one of her own :-) she said she went straight up to Sharon's shop (Betty's) the day after and treated herself to one, along with a magnifier. I happened to mention while we were talking that i railroad all my stitches, she wasn't familiar with it, but when she tried it she was amazed what a difference it made. I've got a feeling that the next time we meet she will be cursing me for slowing her up and causing extra work, lol.
Thanks for visiting me today and leaving me a comment, i really appreciate it :-)
