The headless queen

Two sessions in one day, what is becoming of me? I ran out of pink for her dress so matched as best I could from my stash... it's not the best match.

Day Job

The kids were happy to amuse themselves while I did my stitching. Yay! Look at that I'm up to her waist.

bit more o' queenie

I have a headache. It's not even a bad one. It's an annoying one.

Hello, I am an addict

I started a new cross stitch tonight. I have a good reason! Eldest's school is having a Mother's Day trinket sale for the kids to buy something for their mum. They've asked for donations of things we've made ourselves or have laying around, in good condition of course. I thought, excellent! A grand opportunity to off load some of my bookmarks! I have to make the queen one first though. I suppose I could have donated it undone but I like the doing!
So here's tonight's progress, her shoes and bottom of her skirt. What you don't see is the sorted thread. Ginger, for the record, is a red-ish brown.

Found a snake skin in the backyard today. It belongs to a small young one, but the mystery of whether it's venemous or not, still around or not... gah! Gives me the heebie jeebies!
Did some more of the seaview tonight whilst watching the box. The two shades of yellow on the rocks are Fun!

Dozy Walking

Watching bits and pieces on the box. Saw most of NCIS except the second time eldest came wandering out Hubbie came out of seclusion and switched off the telly as he thought eldest was watching it so I missed the end of a very confusing episode. Nevermind. I'll google it.
I was going to add a close up picture of the sea that is giving my grief but it's taking too long to upload so I'll merely bring your attention to the lower right and say "That!".

Day 2 of this little burst

Mr Mr is on a TV burst so while he watched Homeland I listened to it and stitched some more tapestry.
One of these days I'm going to work out how to do a slideshow or something to show the progress.

Instead of games...

Hubbie handed me a pair of earphones so I could play my game while he watched Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and I thought, no. I'll do some tapestry and so I did:

He is now hinting very strongly that I should come to bed as it is late and we over did it last night already.
