Another Happy Dance

Here are my Spot of - seasons which I finished last night. I have so enjoyed stitching this and now I just need to get the four little charms and then I can finish it off.

Having this weekend to stitch what I liked has been fun and so I have decided that I will do WT and ISD during the week and keep the weekends for "me" stitching. I have a few more things that are not far from being done and it would be nice to get them out of the way. This will also give me the chance to pull out things from my rota and even have a few new starts if I feel like it - though I will keep anything new to fairly small things.

Yesterday I went off to my hardanger day and Keith and Oz went off to the National Space Museum. We all enjoyed our day in different ways. Mine was as always great fun though to be honest I was not in a stitchy mood for some reason and I got very little achieved. Still the company was good and we had as always lots of fun and giggles.

Its very dull here today and I have been busy tidying up and dusting round after the weekend. I am now going to pull out WT and make a start. I hope I get on well with it this morning as this is the only day I will be home all day this week so its the only chance I will get to make an impression on it.

NOTE FOR KAREN AND JULIE
(karens place in webspace and julies stitchyknitter journal)

I have a couple of cottages going free in my village. They are next door to each other and every time I see them I think of you two living there. Have either of you any objections to living in my village - I do hope not but let me know.

Thank you once again for to all those who visit and for all the lovely comments which I so much enjoy reading and do appreciate so much.


may all your frogs stay in their ponds

I am fairly new here. I love reading your blog. What is this about the village??!!! I know you are stitching this, but correct me if i am wrong - you have a story built on it as you are stitching?? Do correct me please.

I love this innovative way of stitching.

Julie said...

Yes please Helen, count me in next door to Karen, i only have one request though ... can we have one of those little gates between the houses so we can 'just pop next door' without having to go into the main road.

p.s will there be room for Mr Moe or Midge to come too? or maybe i'll have a warren in the garden ... now i am getting carried away ROFLOL

congratulations on finishing the seasonal spots, I've just bought spring and summer, but wasn't sure how I would stitch them, I think the way you've done it is perfect.

What a beautiful finish. I don't know why anyone wouldn't have entered for these charts, they look so quick to do and very effective.
