As evidence of the kids being old enough for me to do stitching while they're around I did a bit of the butterfly bookmark while they were watching "Tangled" for the umpteenth million time. Two sleeps 'til eldest is back to school!

Sea is Green

Did a bit more while watching "Long Way Round". Ok, it was more listening than watching.

Happy Australia Day!

This is the seaview tapestry. Made in France so I have no idea what it's called really. I got it with a voucher from my sisters for a birthday a few years ago. I've got it on the frame sideways as it's a 125cm wide by 60cm high.
Tapestries are not my favourite. They're open to interpretation and it forces me to think creatively. Would it look better with one more pixel of green or brown? Argh!
I remember taking a picture of it all opened out before i put it on the frame but I can't find it at the moment. When I do I'll add it in here somewhere.
For now:
Before I started (today), rotated for your viewing pleasure.

Took a piccie before I started:
