A quick request regarding blogs with Word Verifiers - I can't comment on these right now. Blogger just won't accept what I type. I had at least 10 attempts on one blog last night and gave up in frustration! Please consider removing Word Verifiers if you have it or at least make sure it's visible on the first comment screen so I know not to bother typing a long comment then can't post it! If you're concerned about Spam then remove the option for "Anonymous" to comment. It mostly seems to be newer bloggers that still have Word Verifiers so maybe you're not aware of the difficulty! I'd hate you to think I'm ignoring your blogs,
Holly, I especially loved your sweet peas!! I call my boys that sometimes as a term of endearment. An elderly lady heard me and said "What a lovely name for such a pretty little girl". Actually he's got a normal name and he's a BOY!! But I said it more politely than that LOL.
I've been stitching away on Around the World and if "Sweet Pea" hadn't been up until midnight last night I'd have finished Part 3. Never mind. That's what happens when they have a nap during the day.
I also received this anazing piece of fabric from Karen as a RAK. Poor old dear can't see to stitch on 40count so she sent it to me! Here's a picture of the fabric (colours as accurate as possible) and also the chart I'm planning to stitch on it. What do you think? I need a nice black thread a little thicker than one strand of DMC as I'll be stitching over 2 and I'm not sure if one strand will cover well enough. Any recommendations gratefully received. I don't mind spending a little more for this project. Within reason. Not £10 a skein!
