It may have rained and snowed but ...........................

we still had a good time out at the trailer. DH spent quite a lot of time outdoors with Mandy (the dog) throwing sticks and building large fires (the man does not know the meaning of the word moderation) and I mange to do quite a bit of stitching and reading in between getting the trailer ready for closing up. In the evenings we watched movies (State of Play, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Razor's Edge, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, North and South mini series, Persuasion, Midsomer Mysteries Set 11 and Sunshine Cleaning.)

I finished the following piece while out there:

A Needleworker's Creed © 2005 Primrose Needleworks (Elizabeth Gorski)

I also managed to put a lot of work into the Garden Fantasy Mystery SAL (Pamela Kellogg). I finished the Bumble Bee and made significant progress on the Ladybug and the Butterfly.

I have become intriqued with the Tudors again (I love the TV series and I was obsessed with the Royal Family Tree in my teens) and managed to read (and listen) to 2 books this past week involving them - The Constant Princess - Philippa Gregory and To Shield the Queen: A Mystery in Queen Elizabeth I's Court - Fiona Buckley.


  1. Great progress on your stitching! YOur SAL is beautiful.

  2. Lovely finish. And I really like the ladybug in the other piece!

  3. Great finish and I love your SAL - stunning!
