We got our holiday confirmation but I think I was having a senior moment when I mentioned it last night. I said the date was the 21st July - errrrr where did that come from - silly me it is the 21st September; yes just under three weeks to go. We are off to get some much needed sunshine sailing down the Nile. I would say some culture too but maybe you need a brain for that bit and mine seems to have gone on its own holiday just lately.
I did stick to my plan and worked on I Still Do today. I have got another year (on Saturday) to get it done but I will have to do more than I have managed to day if I am to be finished in time. I did spend quite a bit of time on it and only frogged a couple of stitches but the end result is not very impressive. I achieved what you see of the top right side motif. I enjoyed stitching this but just feel it doesnt look much for the time I put in - oh well such is life.
Back to Come & Share tomorrow. Sorry Rachael, Andy won't let you come to my house again if you start buying all the charts you liked lol. Oh never mind just blame me I have broad shoulders.
Today my family all arrived back from France where they had enjoyed a lovely holiday and I admit it was lovely to see them again, especially my darling grandson who seems to have shot up - can a child possibly grow that much in three weeks?
Their arrival home also meant the departure of Jules from our lives. She was so thrilled and excited when they arrived at our house but when it came to them going home she was rather reluctant to leave - oops have we been spoiling her too much. I must admit the house has seemed very empty tonight without her as she always seems to pick the most inconvenient place to settle down.
This photo was taken yesterday up at Beacon Hill.
Christine - Shiona said that the only needlework shop they found seemed very expensive and did not appear to have anything very different to what we can get here far cheaper.
Another nice thing was that Nicola (Tales from My Needle blog)phoned me tonight. Unfortunately it was just as David and Debbie had arrived to collect the dog so I was unable to chat for long, but we are going to meet up with her and her DH on Saturday so will have plenty to chat about then. It is very exciting after all these years to suddenly be meeting so many stitching friends. I am really looking forward to it.
Tomorrow I am picking Oz up and then my mum and we are all going out somewhere for the day. Oz is looking forward to a day with Granny and Great Granny wonder if he thinks he might get a little spoilt lol.
Well my eyes are closing and its well past my bedtime so I will say goodnight to you all.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
may your frogs stay in their ponds.
