Today has been bright and sunny and relatively warm at a mere 15 degrees celsius! The HDHBEM and I went out for a drive past the Royal New Zealand Naval Base and enjoyed both the sunny weather and the beautiful views of Rangitoto Island. The view in this snapshot is actually taken from Mt Eden, near my home and the naval base is on the small peninsula in the mid-left of the shot.
But now the sun has gone down, the curtains are drawn, the chores are all done and it is time for dinner in front of the TV news and a night of stitching.
I managed a small ornament finish - only to find that I had no extremely narrow red ribbon so had to improvise. White ribbon, silver pins and shiny red beads. I can't make the computer rotate this photo tonight so here's the sideways shot!
It was Embroiderers Guild last Saturday and I made a start on a hardanger "hanging bell" which is proving fun to stitch. The main grid is now laid down and I need to do the back stitch and the beading before attempting the construction.
Have a look at this website and see if you'd like to make a "Winters Tale" too.
So that's it from me today. Have a good evening everyone
