Thankyou Inspector Barnaby

While watching Inspector Barnaby of Causton CID solve four murders in and around Midsomer - the 'Left for Dead' episode which according to Wikipedia 7.16 million people have already viewed - and once more decided that John Nettles is soooo distinguished looking - I managed to complete the next section of Quaker Row . So now I will roll it away until next month's Embroiderers Guild and get back to Edgar's RR.

I also promised the half deaf half blind elderly Mother a small white pompom as a rabbits tail to complete the childs cardigan she has knitted. At the moment however the HdHbEM is engrossed in a Maeve Binchy book from the large print section of the local library and wouldn't even hear her name if called!

This afternoon I called at the local sewing centre to buy a zip and a reel of thread and somehow this found its way into my bag too! Isn't this etui wonderful? I have promised myself that when I finish my Anne of Green Gables Book and my ABeCedaire I will stitch this. Hope I can wait that long - but as it takes Gloriana floss I will need to source that first which should give adequate time to complete the two UFO's.
So have a happy evening all of you. I'm off to make a pumpkin, chickpea and broccli curry and then settle in to a night of stitching and The Amazing Race. Be good all of you.

  1. Your Quaker Row looks beautiful! A stitching friend just sent me that magazine and oh my gosh--what amazing stuff in it! The stitch diagrams alone are worth the cost of the book.

  6. I usually fold laundry while watching Inspector Barnaby, but I will try stitching the next time. I am waiting on Series 16 to arrive at my library.

    Congrats on your progress!
