Dachshund project 


Look her new project looks like me! I do like to take her scarf & take it too my bed. 

She has a new project case & frame, it’s too big & I can not get my head on her lap, if it comes to it I will have to gnash those wooden structures, when she is not looking.  I do like the colours, it is the same colour as me. 


SAL: July update


It’s been a long three weeks & apart from finishing my Jacobean piece for the royal school of needlework, I haven’t done much, ( that’s apart from school stuff, kids reports mainly, I do not understand why one kids report is ok, and another’s is not, what do I know, I teach physics!) , it did get me down in the end. It’s done now, & I will move on.

I managed to get a little stitching done after Claire’s reminder appeared. I only have one more to complete after this one.

Game of thrones: the beginning 


This strange piece of stitching is the enormous game of thrones marathon cross stitch picture my ‘sweet’ husband liked & ordered. He even helped order the fabric & silks, partly due to the ‘hissy fit’ I had when I saw the size of it!!! 

I have worked out if I do 200 stitches a day for the next 2 yrs it will be finished !!! LOL like that will happen!

I have been putting off starting it for at least 6 or more months. It has now made it on to the work in progress pile. I might rename it fifty shades of grey, as there are 3 different colours used so far & I can hardly tell the difference.

Anyway he seems happy I’ve finally started it.
