.... and Rosie a lovely run ...
Not a lot of sunshine or colour but I was very taken with some fungus which was actually the same lime green I'm crocheting with.
We have also had a film weekend with The Artist on Saturday (awarded 8s and 9s out of 10 by the panel - very entertaining and a really brave film) and The Woman in Black (average score of 7/10) which was a classic Victorian Gothic horror and at least 4 scary bits to get the adrenilin going, though not as scary as others had made me believe. We all felt it was a a bit of a stretch though seeing Harry Potter as a father!
Also a finish ... my roses cushion and I'm very pleased. Here it is in its new home on my bed. Certainly did take the 100 hours World of Cross Stitching estimated.
I am adding this as my February make along with my machine embroidered picture to Annie The Felt Fairy's monthly make on Flicker!
I've started a new smaller crossstitch of hyacinths so that when my lovely white plants fade in a few weeks I'll have a little hanging to remind me of the wonderful smell. My ripple blanket is slowly growing and I'm making a bit of an effort at the moment. Ran out of some wool though and apparently the lime green which I love is now discontinued. Thank goodness for ebay.
Finally I've started a little quilt, which is the first time I've done any patchwork or quilting. I got out all the material I've been hording (amazed how much there was) and there still weren't all the colours I wanted. I've started piecing the squares together though this is not easy with a dog and 2 cats around as Rosie is demonstrating. I've no idea how this will work out, but I guess that's the real challenge and enjoyment of producing something.
With all this to do I wish it wasn't work tomorrow!
