March’s Cottage, now with sheep

4 Comments

Friday’s purchases inspired a flurry of stitching yesterday. The idea is that if I finish the Cottages more quickly each month, I can finish some of my other WIPs and then I can start on my lovely Flower sampler book. I stitched all through third practice for the GP, for which I got up at 4.30am, and this is what it looked like by the end of the coverage for that.

I do love those sheep. I made a good start on the borders during qualifying and in the afternoon, and I hope to finish this off tomorrow.

The reason I haven’t got much done today is that the race itself today was much too exciting to do any stitching while it was on, and as soon as it had finished, I was straight out the door and back to the NEC. There I met up with friends and had a lovely natter while they shopped. I had absolutely no intention of buying anything else today. I went only to socialise.

Then I spotted this.

I’ve been looking for a new bag that would sling crossways. And this was just the colour scheme I was looking for, and much cheaper than any of the others that I’ve seen. Pretty, isn’t it.

Back to work in the morning after a lovely week off. I’d rather stay home with my books and stitching but what can I do? Someone’s got to pay for all this stash.

  2. Yup, all finished, and pressed. Photos taken too. I’m just about to put them on the laptop.
    Your few flowers shouldn’t take long once you’ve rested that arm a bit and then you’ll be ready for a bit of purple.

  3. I love that bag – yum! Love the sheep too, aren’t they cute? I could have had mine finished last week but needed to give the arm a rest. I’ve a few flowers to do on the bottom border – are you all complete now? April arrived yesterday šŸ˜€

  4. It was lovely to see you again chuck & I thought you were so very well controlled in *not* buying any more goodies today (well..other than that lush bag). See you again soon. xx
