Tuesday Stitching Group

Tuesday's are quite often my favourite day in the week, not so yesterday.  It started well I managed to complete all the HW quite early and I had a friend come for lunch and a catch up.  After that the gremlins crept in ~ The dishwasher didn't clean things, our internet was acting like a petulant teenager, I ran out of sugar (not a good place to be with biscuits to bake) and on the way to get some I got a flat tyre!  I limped it to the petrol station and it wouldn't inflate at which point I became all girlie and pathetic.  I ended up abandoning little Jazzy and walking home!

Well the Ladies came and stitched, a few were missing due to holiday and family commitments ~ but we had a lovely evening.  We have some quite diverse work going on at the moment, applique work towards quilts, cross stitch, canvas work etc it changes from time to time.

This was my planned stitching ~ Natural Bows Sampler by Sunken Treasures ~ a kit purchased at Harrogate last November and my New Year's Day start

This picture shows progress to date.  The kit came with the linen and all the threads and beads to complete.  It's a lovely piece to stitch and I plan to frame this for our room.

I decided instead to work on All You Need Is Love ~ I'm down to the last 3 heart motifs now.  As LM will be away on business for 2 days next week I plan to complete the finishing then ~ just hope I'm up to it!
Lemon biscuits turned out to be quite yummy and so simple ~ sorry no photograph ~ I will be baking them again though and will try to remember then.
My LM recovered little Jazzy after changing the wheel, he thinks a new tyre may be required so we're off to the garage this morning.  She looks a little sad with the space saver wheel on, a bit like a discarded toy!
Till next time
