No panic. I am not ceasing to stitch but I must stop reading a book at lunchtime. For the past few days I have been parking my car under a shady tree (well, it is around 25 degrees celsius here and the sun is hot) and while eating my lunch have been eating a book. Oops, make that reading a book. All the best dietitians and nutrition experts tell you this is bad for the digestion. I don't know about that but I do know I lose sight of time and barely make it back to my office by the end of my lunch break. Definitely not a good way to start the year!
But I highly recommend this work of fiction which held me in its grip yesterday.
I don't think I have shown this - a gift from a friend for me to stitch. the little house needle holder I am going to redo as I finished it with some linen showing as a border and that is apparently not correct so a re-working is necessary. Tonight perhaps? The floss ring is buttonhole over a plastic curtain ring - clever no? Those little felt flowers on the pin heads (next to the scissors) require small fingers to manipulate!!
Well that's all for today.
