Round The Bend

Hurray - I am now round the bend - probably in more ways than one I can hear you thinking :o) . What I mean is I am now on the corner leaf for the ivy border and have actually gone round the corner and have started on the downward trail. I am amazed how quickly I seem to have reached the corner just by doing one little leaf each day. I will soon be moving down the side and if I get fed up now I will not feel so guilty if I want to do a flower to break the monotony. The one leaf a day has been all I have managed on the stitching front for the last few days, and mostly that has been done in the evening.

We didnt move from the house yesterday as the weather was awful, but the day before we went to Carsington Waters. It was lovely and sunny but there was an icy cold wind which was really strong and rather spoilt it. I have never seen the water with waves on it before lol. Anyway here is a picture of Carsington - though not a very good one, it was not the day for standing about taking pictures.We are off to Stapley Water Gardens today and if you go to the link and click on Palms Tropical Oasis you will see what we are up to.

Happy Stitching

Glad to see you making progress on that ivy border! Hope the weather improves for you. We've had some nice days over the weekend, but clouds have piled up tonight and we're getting a bit of a thunderstorm! I love the drama in the sky on nights like this. :)
