This is my progress on Taj Mahal MG. I am so disappointed that the colours do not show well on the scan as they really are pretty. I saw this one done on black the other day and it was stunning, I felt very tempted to start again but just hadn't got the heart to frog what I had done. It may not look a lot but it has taken quite a long time to get to this stage and I do love it.
To those who asked did we get any snow. Im afraid not; it snowed quite heavily a couple of times yesterday but just didnt settle. Oscar spent the morning reading stories and silly rhymes to us from a book he got for christmas and this afternoon he and keith spent their time making a space station and all the vehicles from Lego. Tonight we watched Shrek 3 before bedtime. We had Pirates Pie for tea, one of his favourites - this started when he would not eat fish. I made Pirates Pie and he loved it, once he was used to it we started a discussion on what sort of things might be in it - I mean what would a pirate be able to get when he was at sea all the time. The penny slowly dropped and now he likes to come to the fish monger and choose what fish goes into it - tonight it was cod, smoked haddock, salmon and a few prawns.
I am not doing this months challenge as we go away in 12 days and I just dont think I am going to have the time, but I will look forward to seeing what the others have done when I get back.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on The Alphabet Garden. Hope you are all having a lovely stitchy weekend.
