Windy days and stitches

Did I say something about early summer? I take it back! In spite of the fact that I saw a Pohutukawa flowering yesterday (about 6 weeks too early), it's cold and wet and we've had the windiest winds (shades of AA Milne there) I can ever remember having! The Sky Tower had to be closed it was so windy!

I promised stitching pics, so here's the next thing on the rotation - Quaker a 6 Mains. I don't have an awful lot left to do so I'm hoping to get this finished soon - I have to do it this year, it has 2006 on it!

I worked on the quaker for three days and then the missing threads I needed for part 1 of Pompeii Garden arrived. I held out for a day but I couldn't resist and I'm back on that for a while. I've made it a focus piece - I can see I won't be able to put it away for very long! Pics of that to come soon.

  2. I forgot about this one. You are nearing a finish, I think! Can't wait to see more progress on Pompeii!

  4. I thought I hadn't seen this for a while! It looks lovely - you're nearly done now, not much to go. I finally finished mine yesterday, although I did a slightly abbreviated version because I want to finish it as a bag and I thought the full size would have been too big.

  9. Hmm, it doesn't sound like anyone is enjoying nice weather anywhere these days. Your Quaker piece looks so pretty - I love the blue fibre you are using.
