SAL: zodiac sampler finished

Standard

The last one is finished😁


The whole thing.


Is has been installed in my kitchen, between the fridge freezer & the back door. I managed to squeeze my ‘wheel of the year ‘ prints in too, I glad they fitted into the space as they have been sitting on s shelf for a couple of years after redecorating ( they didn’t fit in with the colour scheme)

Please have a look at what the others have been working on.

Dachshund project 2

Standard

We’ve been away on Holiday cruising around the British Isles, it was a great chance to see Orkney & Skye, as well as Southern Ireland & some other places we’ve been before. It was nice to get away & get some sewing done ( apologies to anyone I missed replying to). I didn’t enjoy this cruise as much as some of the others we’ve done as the passengers were a little older than normal ( I suppose that’s because we cruised round our own Island), it had a ‘waiting for God’ feel about it. It also rained most days, but I have had a well earned break & been fed rather too well. 

I’ve made great progress on Luna’s picture. I do wish people would leave you alone, without making stupid comments ( men of a certain age & a few women) probably because I’m using a lap frame in a bag, people don’t seem able to comprehend I’m sewing ( what they think I’m doing I have no idea) I would also be better off using a hoop too, sorry I don’t get this comment either. Most people thought I would finish the picture be the end of the cruise (seriously) or perhaps by the end of the month, they really have no idea!!

Finally if you are ever in the situation of lots of pathetic & stupid comments I suggest you reply. “You make your assumptions, I’ve already made mine!” . It really works, they wander off & leave you alone. 

Now to get on with the washing & I hope the Sun is shining all day & I can get it dry. I have already booked space on Mum’s washing line too. I wouldn’t be surprised if the water board isn’t listening for a leak at the end of our road. Off to hang another lot out.
