It is still too cold for swimming - but the seals and penguins don't seem to know that! We trampers enjoyed hot showers and roaring log fires at the lodges each night but on generator power (= dim lighting) and being tired after a days tramping (= tired eyes) I didn't get any stitching done en route :-(
However just prior to this walk I managed to finish the Susanne Sampler so it is now ironed and rolled up awaiting a trip to the framers. This is my first such spot sampler and I am very pleased with the way it has turned out.
Also I see that my Mattress Pincushion for the HOE Exchange has arrived safely so here's a picture of what I sent. Marion, I am pleased you like the handcream - it was specially formulated by the local needlework store to be sure it is suitable for embroiderers!
