Finally, something to show you! I'm trying to vaguely stick to my rota, so Tuesday is Awake the Dawning Day - I've now finished all the vines around the house, along with the eyelets, flowers and grapes. I didn't quite manage to finish the first bird before my eyes fluttered in fatigue on the couch last night, so this is where I've got to (sorry for the crooked photo):
We're in the middle of a tube strike in London - which is making my commute to work much longer. Instead of a 15-minute journey on the tube, I am now faced with queueing (that's the polite way of saying, elbows out and barging) for a bus, or else walking for 45 minutes from Paddington station to my work. Yesterday, I elected the bus option, and discovered that it also takes 45 minutes, and you have the added bonus of being squashed in like a sardine as the bus meanders slowly from one bus stop to the next. Today, I walked.
The hunt for a place to stay at the weekend is not going well - the only place I've found that agreed that they did have some rooms also (thankfully) let me know that they had a wedding booked for the weekend, and that it was likely to be a rowdy one. So, the search goes on...
Happy stitching all and thanks for dropping by!
