March wipocalpyse

Okay life has been a bit hectic for the last wee while - I feel that I can actually take a breath this weekend.   DD has been competing in a figure skating competition this week (she came a respectable 9th out of 17) which has involved a lot of time (and my bank account haemorrhaging money) so stitching time has been few and far between.

However  not all is lost -  I will start with a finish - yay!. Finished this up a couple of weeks ago and it is now hanging on daughter's wall, which is an achievement in itself. The amount of finishes I have that are still waiting to be framed is growing.

This was from Cross Stitch Collection last year - there is a border that goes round it but I preferred it without.

Owl (from Love Thy Thread) is now down to the second row - this is being stitched on Autumn Gold from Sparklies - it is a slightly darker colour than it shows here.

Finishing off my Mirabilia spring - beading, beading and a bit more beading

Topic this month is favourite places to stitch .  I am an at home in front of the TV stitcher, I very rarely stitch out of the house. Even on holiday I always have great plans to stitch but find that reading is always my preferred activity -  So this is usually my view from my recliner in the living room.  I will admit I am a bit of a TV addict, love a good drama series - at the moment I am hooked on Line of Duty - the last episode is this week and I am still none the wiser as to who did what!
