We saw the costumes from Les Miserables.
A seaside scene.
These photos do not do it justice. I did take more ,but will just show you the other half with his knitted woman.
He got himself a kit to do marbling, and some chain maille books with tools and rings to do it. So he will be busy too, he has just enrolled for a distance archaeology course at Exeter University. Which has impressed Jack who has just started uni.
Oh Sam made us giggle the other day, he sent us a text saying, Hi nanny and Grandad, Mum has told me you have been tracing the family tree, she said my ansisters came over with Willliam the conger. Oh dear ,it made us smile.
Alfie the little one had his pic in the paper the other evening . Great action shot.
He is the one with the ball.Anyway I have gone off on a bit of a tangent, I saw this knitted into a scarf at the show and yes I have started it. Maybe I will have done enough to show you next time.
I did buy lots of bits ,some long stitch kits, a blackwork lady,and a redwork stitching bag kit,that you can see on Polstitches site. So you see I am really looking forward to my autumn. I have a finish to show you ,yes you have guessed it October wordplay is done.
I really think this is my favourite (lol), here it is with the October mantle.
I have also been working on my Quaker Diamonds that is my "strictly"piece for this dancing season.
Please excuse the hoop and wrinkle marks. The fabric is a warm sand colour so don't know what happened there. On Mondays I have been stitching with Sally and Simplicity now is ready for the border. Patience has arrived at last . On Fridays again with my friend Sally we are stitching on Jardin Prives Sal. Here is where I am up to ,1st part done.
This one is just so pretty and for free amazing. Wednesday in the parlour I have been stitching LHN Garden Pleasures.
Just the writing and to finish the border. I have got November wordplay ready to go, but I have a few days before I need that one . I am also stitching a spooky design for an exchange. I need more time or more hands.
Well folks hope boredom has not set in. I think it may be a walk next time as Marti.n is all stitch showed out!
He did buy me a new lamp which is super and at only £35 was a bargain.
