Its Monday and thus its stitchy upate time...
I have been carrying on with the sampler that took my fancy a week ago and have managed to put in about 4 hours. It doenst look like I have by my progress but I am happy with it. I really do like the variegated thread and although time consuming the effect is far better than two separate colours. I am considering using some of the thread from the original kit as a second colour (it will make sense once I finish all this colour on this page) and a dark green shade for lines.
Anyway, here are some pictures of my progress...you may recall that I had the letters B, O, P & Q before and now I have almost finished the letter A. It is the largest letter.
and a close up of A....
Next up, is the catastrophe...although it wasnt that bad or at least I hope not, but my new kitten Muse managed to hurt her leg today, subsequently she is on painkillers for a few days to see if it improves or if she needs an x-ray. Some amongst you may even suggest that she takes after her owner on the clumsy level - hehe.
Here she is recovering...
I have had itchy feet lately and need to get away to save my sanity and so an idea that I had is now coming into fruition. I am taking myself on a little adventure. If you have been reading my current weekly serial about Millie and Elvis and their diamond adventure then you might be able to guess where I am going!
I am going to Marrakech, but I am travelling overland to get there as my main character will be, and I am quite nervous and excited.
This is a rough guide to my intinerary;
- Eurostar from London to Paris
- Train from Paris to Madrid
- Train from Madrid to Algeciras
- Ferry from Algeciras to Tangier
- Train from Tangier to Marrakech
- Flight from Marrakech to Paris
- Eurostar from Paris to London
I will get two full days in Paris, a day in Madrid and 2 days in Marrakech. I will travel by boat, bus, train and plane and travel through 3 countries; France, Spain & Morroco.
I leave this Saturday 2nd February and return on Saturday 9th February...I may need a holiday to recover!
I shall take my stitching with me :D and try to blog an update next Monday from Madrid!
I hope you all have a great week too x
