Yesterday I had stitching time during the day. That is a rarity. The reason was not so pleasant as Master Jack (12) had teeth extracted under a general anaesthetic. So while I was waiting for him to return from theatre and then recover in the hospital I stitched.
I took my new small project by Little House Needleworks "Bringing Home the Tree" to the hospital. As you can see I am using some hand-dyed threads. I had no luck getting the recommended threads locally so did a colour match with ones I could access. As this is only a small project I justified the purchase of some specialty threads as I only needed four skeins. I now have to find some remaining DMC threads from my stash to finish the stitchery. I will post my colour changes on my blog when I have finished this.
I wish there was more stitching time during the day but I know I am not the only one wishing for that. Back to chasing Toddler Tom as he wreaks havoc on my clean house.
Thanks for meandering in my bit of the garden...
