This gentleman looks so much like my great-uncle - all that is missing is him wearing overalls! How he loved his ice cream!
I've decided to have a stitching / reading weekend. I was up late last night / early morning due to an asthma attack and decided to start knitting - I managed to get 3 rows completed on the baby dress. I am embarrassed to say I've only gotten 4 rows completed in about 3-4 weeks. Not good! But I will prevail! :)
Then I checked my email and to my absolute delight, Tasha Tudor's online web shop now is offering cross-stitch kits! Only 4 of them and they are pricey but oh what a delight it is to know that one of my family's most favorite authors/artists finally has their artwork available to stitch!!!! And yes, at least one of them is on my Christmas wish list :)
Also, here is the blog ran by her family - there is an email newsletter you can sign up for someplace as well:
In other stitching news, I got in an hour's worth of stitching on my Quaker Motifs project. Not enough really to show yet but hopefully by Sunday afternoon, it will be worth taking a photo or scan of to share.
Well, I think I will go read a bit more of My Cousin Rachel - I've read 3 chapters already and it definitely has me curious as to what happens next!
Enjoy the day and your weekend!
