It's been a busy week for me – our trip back to the UK turned out far more eventful then planned when (and this is really the best travelling excuse I've ever heard) the station master lost the keys to his station at 5.30 in the morning and it took 3 hours for someone to drive the spares up to our small alpine town! Of course this meant we missed about our next three connections and had to spend the whole day arguing to get our tickets changed at every stop. All credit to DH here – he managed to keep his cool, argue for our tickets in what is his 3rd language and carry over 100kgs of luggage up numerous flights of stairs and broken escalators.
Fortunately since we got back we've been able to take a few days and just rest! Which has meant a finish for me – Love Cats 1. I made a couple of miniscule changes to the pattern and debated for ages with myself over whether to include the 'Love Cats' stitching in the corner, but in the end I love how it turned out. Hopefully my dear friend who it is going to thinks so too.
|'Love Cats 1,' by Bothy Threads. Finished 28/02/12. Completed with materials supplied in Kit.|
It has now been carefully packed away until I can get it back to NZ and try and find a suitable frame. Which means I finally feel I can get started on CCN's April Showers. . . oh I have been waiting to start this pattern for so long now!
I hope you are all enjoying some sunnier weather. My in-laws garden is covered in snow drops, aren't they gorgeous?
Enjoy your week stitchers. DH and I are heading away tomorrow to attend my sister-in-laws '5th' birthday party. Can you figure out how old she is actually turning?
That's all for now,
