This post is to remind me that it doesn't matter if progress is at a snail's place, I am still slowly moving forward. Even if that is hard to see.
Row number 99 of the 100 stitch sampler. Eastern Stitch. I think that this thread is a bit thick for the stitch but the whole sampler is in Perle 5 so I couldn't change that for these last couple of stitches
And a piece from the audit list. This is a kit that I bought in England the last time I was there in 2010. Peter rabbit's garden at Hill Top Farm. It was the last time that I did any difficult hiking I now realise. A great place to end to my hiking career in the Cumbrian hills, although I didn't know it at the time. In fact I ended up in Cumbria not knowing that my son had arrange a week of walking. I thought I was going for a relaxing week on the Lakes. It was supposed to be easy, the kit that is, the hiking was rather more difficult I remember. Famous last words. This is going to be around for quite a few months. But now I have made the connection with the hiking it has more significance
I keep colouring in the stitches I've finished but don't seem to be filling many of the spaces. I think that I will mount it in the lid of a box. I haven't found a box just yet but I know that Shirley Bourke up in Toowoomba has some.
You can see a lot more interesting work than these pieces at Pintangle.
