I spent ages preparing my embroidery for my friend. Too bad I didn't read the instructions properly. I got nearly to the end of the first plate only to find most of it should have been stitched in one thickness of thread not two. It took me days to pull it all out. Now I have to start again.
There is just so much other stuff going on that I'm not finding time to stitch. Some of the 'other stuff' is another book in the Rain Wild Chronciles series by Robin Hobb, 'Blood of Dragons". I have made myself put it down and only read one chapter per day. That is so hard to do.
I might start to re-read all Robin Hobb books again, and there are lots of them. They are so exciting to read I'm sure I missed some facits of them. It must be age. I never re-read books but now have an urge to re-visit a lot of books I have read before.
