Just thought I had better pop in and do a quick update before I go back down to Cornwall yet again for a short holiday with my parents.
so............. once I had got up to date with that one! I remembered the one from last year, designed by Val, and not completed by me....so I dusted that off and carried on with it, and its turning out very nice indeed!
I caved in and signed up for the Passione Ricamo Fairy Mystery SAL as well, it looked so pretty that I just could not resist..enabled again!!
Here is a photo of the first few hours of work from me, I am using threads and beads from my stash rather than buying a load of stuff that is the designers choice. I think it looks lovely so far, and the colours will suit my bedroom far better so I am sticking with this now. I confess to stitching in another thread for several hours and then frogging the lot cos I wasnt happy with the darker colour as chosen by the designer, not for my bedroom anyway....so this is the final choice now, and mine will after all, be unique
Its only a small area at the moment, but I hope to get a lot more done on this whilst I am down in Cornwall. I am taking this and Vals sal with me.
And my Kindle...of course!
Speaking of which, I finally read the Fifty Shades books last weekend, was sick of being the only one not to have done so...in the world I think!!
I did read all 3.
I am unsure as to what to say really....I have now done that at least, so I will not have to repeat it! and I have read worse. I have also read a lot better. And I could have done without all the lip biting and swinging from the chandeliers!!
I have switched to some good old Regency Romance now, I felt the need for a nice story!!
Night everyone! I will be back in about 10 days from Mum and Dads, and will update soon after.
