Friday Stitching

Oh, it’s been a horrible weekend weather wise!! Hot, dry, windy and bush fires burning out of control. Thoughts and prayers with all those affected. It felt a bit like living in Winter – tucked up inside, not venturing forth, ‘cept it was stinking hot instead of freezing cold!!

I was quite productive……well, in fits and starts, but more of that later in the week.

First, we had stitching at Mrs Mac’s and granddaughter, Little Miss M, had had a birthday, turning a big 9!! And what would a stitching Nanna give a granddaughter, do you think?

If it hadn’t been so hot on the weekend I would have basted it, but working with wooly bits is just a bit too much in the heat! Today looks like being the only cool day for a week, but there were lots of other things (like washing – couldn’t let us be knicker-less!!) to be done. Ah well, it’s not going anywhere!
