Well, it's been a while since I blogged. I've had a busy couple of weekends. Last Saturday I went to the NEC on a coach trip. I had a great day, but unfortunately didn't get around it all. Maybe next year I'll go and stay in the area. Having left home at 7:20 in the morning, we didn't arrive at the NEC until 11.30 am, and then had to leave at 4.45pm, and arrived home just before 9pm. It was a long day, but just not enough time at the show. I bought a few bits and bobs. My best buy was 50p, a mobile phone charm for dd.

I did some framing on Sunday, well only one picture. I stitched this for someone at work, and gave it to them. They went out and bought the frame, and then asked me to frame it for them. I wasn't really happy with how it went. I prefer to lace my stitching, but this frame didn't have enough depth to have the bulk of it being laced. By the time I'd put the mount into the frame, there was hardly any room to get the fabric in, and then had to put thin card behind the stitching, as the frame back was brown, and it showed through the fabric.

So I'll leave you with this pic, and hope to blog more over the weekend.

A little stitching

I've not had much stitching time this week. But I have managed to pick up the picture I am finishing off for Betty, and hope to finally finish it this week. Time permitting. All I can say is Watch this space.

I've not attempted to post a picture here, because I can tell Blogger is not happy. Maybe it has a hangover after a good Saturday night.
