Stitching, Knitting and Reading on My Holidays!

We are spending our summer holidays out at the trailer so I have a lot of time for stitching, knitting and reading while enjoying the beautiful weather we are having this year.

I am currently working on the Birds of A Feather Mystery SAL. I would be a lot further along if Mr. Frog hadn't decided to visit 3 times this week.

I also knitted 3 dishcloths and have a 4th one in progress.  They are a little misshaped because I haven't had a chance to press them yet (I am only back home for few hours and I don't have any iron at the trailer).

I also finished listening to 2 audiobooks:  Portrait of An Unknown Woman - Vanora Bennett
                                                              Blood Memory - Greg Iles

and 1 e-book:   The Man Who Went Up in Smoke - Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö
Well, that is it for now.  Hopefully, I will have more to show when I am back in the city next Thursday!

Happy Stitching!
