Well what have I done, stitch wise not an awful lot. Last week I had my grandson for three days, on one of the days we went to Rufford Park and did an egg hunt, the eggs were mainly hidden in the trees high up and though some where easy to spot some were really difficult to see - and this is meant for children. Still we all had great fun and thats what matters. Thursday was wet so we headed to the museum in Derby. The highlight of the visit was making a Peregrin mask.
I have only had him for a couple of days this week yesterday we were hunting garden centres as I wanted some nice pot plants for the garden. Luckily Oz enjoys going to the garden centre and seems really interested in flowers and plants, maybe because its not something he does with his parents who both hate gardening and the sum total of green in their garden is some trees at the bottom and a square of lawn - the rest being hard landscaped.
I have managed a bit of stitching on Water Tiger but I thought I had better give a before and after picture to see if you could spot it lol.
I am pleased to say that I have done rather more on I Still Do
though the extra motif I added on the right hand side was such a pain - I had more frogs visiting during stitching that little thing than in all the rest put together. I was so fed up after I had finished it that I moved across to the other side and I am glad to say that went far better, two motifs and seven letters so I feel really pleased with this.
I would like to move onto the Village next but I have some things that really do need to be done and I have kept putting them off and putting them off until now I feel that I must make the effort so for the next week everything is going to be put aside whilst I get some bits out of the way.
Oz is back to school next week but we are having the dog for the week so I will still get no peace. My DS and DIL are having a lot of work done on the house and next week the plasterer is coming in for the week so we are keeping the dog out of the way, which means lots of walkies and not much stitching time - oh I am so going to cry lol.
Thanks to everyone not only for the comments on my stitching coming home but also on the good wishes for the fast recovery of my nasty cold. Thank you so much they must have worked as it seemed to go pretty quickly. It did leave me with a bit of a cough but even that seems to have abated today thank goodness.
may your frogs stay in their ponds
