I am still stitching. Stitch after stitch after tiny weeny stitch. I've been working on the curtains in odd moments in between other things, a little bit of stitching in bed with my morning cuppa, a little bit at the table before breakfast, a little bit out in the back yard when the sun was shining. It's been slow, slow, slow, but somehow rather nice to sit and work so patiently and methodically. I will be glad when it's done though.
On Saturday I popped down to Connievan to hang up the four small curtains that I'd finished (there are 6 small ones and 4 big ones altogether), and I have to say they look rather fabulous.
When the stitching marathon is finally over (I'm currently on curtain number 8/10), my next job will be to see to the mucky velvet pelmets that sit above my gorgeous new curtains. I'm thinking maybe some fabric bunting will look good, to match with the cushions. Brightly coloured patterned triangles hanging from gingham ribbon.....mmmmmmmmm!
We are off this afternoon, taking Connievan up country for a few days to the west coast of Lancashire. I can't wait to see the sea! Will be back next week to tell you all about it.
