Stitching has been slow for the last few days because I've been feeling really tired. Last night I tried for about half an hour, but gave it up as a bad job after the third mistake....so this little bit of Egypt Garden is all I've managed since the weekend. Just the columns and boat scenes, not even backstitched. Pah! LOL
I can, however, show you what I did on Paula's Fairy Dreams for the UFO RR, as she has seen it now. As you can see, I did most of the wing on the right, her hair, over one face, one arm and her bodice. I think the next one up will be Mirabilia Mother's Arms.
Little Pete has been away on a school trip since Monday. He'll be back this afternoon - I've really missed him! He was a bit nervous about some of the stuff they were going to do, like canoeing, and he got a little bit tearful before he got on the bus. I try hard not to be an over-protective mother, but it was hard letting him go when I knew how nervous he was. I expect he'll have had a blast though!
I wanted to show you my latest purchase for the garden. As you know, I planted a mandarin tree a few days ago. I love the idea of fruit trees, but alas, our garden is very small. But I came across this, which I thought was brilliant...it's a dwarf lemon tree I can grow in a pot on the patio. It won't get bigger than about a metre and a half but it has full sized fruit and everything. For all you gardeners out there this is probably old news! haha
