Spring in summer happy dance

As I am currently on my hols have been having some quality stitching time and have even managed a finish.
Mirabilia Maidens of the Seasons Spring. She has been neglected over the last few months and only needed beading . Here she is

And here's my girls enjoying a bit of sun. Am planning in framing them in the coming weeks so decided they needed a little freshen up first. They certainly brightened up my washing line.

Took a trip over to my sister's yesterday and went to check out the Kelpies. Having seen them from the motorway it was good to see them up close to get a real idea of tbeir scale.  I will admit to generally being a bit of a philistine with art but when it comes to pieces like these which break up the mundane landscape I am a total fan.

So I have two weeks off work now - bliss!  Just staying at home and catching up with all the mundane things like dentists and opticians but hopefully squeeze in a couple of day trips as well. Am also looking forward to some quality stitching time, lots of TV to catch up on and Tour de France to watch..  over the last couple of weeks have managed a wee bit.

This week I hope to get the beading finished on my Mirabilia which has been sitting neglected for the past few months

Bathroom is now done all bar the painting - am loving it, loads of room in the shower, don't miss the bath at all (especially the hole lol!), so much easier to keep clean - will get some pictures up shortly
