just incase anyone was starting to wonder..
i just had to regroup after the trip and i really didn’t have much to say..
it rained… no surprise it always rains when Paul and i even look at our tent..
the scenery was beautiful, a bandicoot sat beside pauls foot at the campsite one night snacking on the bits and pieces of “stuff” that paul had eaten and dropped .. it was so cute he had no idea it was there and i could not tell him till it moved away a bit as paul is one of those people if you say something moves all of his body to turn and reply and he would have kicked it for sure.. bandicoots are very cute
i stitched another ornie and a bit so now i am ahead on that SAL and started the next shawl using the gorgeous kelim from The Knittery ( scroll down a few posts to see the colour of the yarn). The Ornie i completed the stitching on is a Gift of Stitching freebie, french sampler inspired heart 1×1 on 32 ct oyster belfast ( thankyou Jan) from Country stitch using the yummy pomegranite silk from Gloriana, the one i then started was another freebie from Gift of stitching, again it will be a heart but with peacocks on it, i am using grapevine HDF silk 1×1 for that one. The pretty slight orange/pink varigation through the red in the pomegranite dos not show up really … sigh
I also have update pics of Sugar Magnolia after the SAL on the BB, i stitched her on friday before i left, and i have a pathetic update pic of Elenia, i finished off her skin and the pink/purple lace trim and started the sleeve of her dress and the bit of background betwixt bodice and sleeve, so back to either background or the final jewel trim next time i guess…
so lots of pics below….
