I had a fantastic weekend! Joel’s Dad is looking well. Lucy’s party was great. Our stitchers get-together on Sunday was just fabulous. I got some lovely new stash, Janine had my cottons for And they sinned and they are sooo pretty. I also had a stash-a-thon in her shop, Colours down under (I picked up And a forest grew at long last after drooling over Carol’s progress for most of the year plus rather a lot of other stuff – yum).

As I predicted my stitching did rather suffer and I managed just over 200 stitches. It’s the tiny bit of white at the top right of the current stitching. Still, it is progress and I’m pretty happy with it. I am still loving working on this piece.
