Hi everyone! Here is my contribution to What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, headed by our chief 'desker' Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground.
There is nothing on my desk this morning, so no photo of that. But I will show you what I am doing at the moment.
Last year I joined an embroidery circle in the village. Embroidery is something I had never done before (apart from cross stitch, but that doesn't count as embroidery according to the 'experts').
I started last year by buying some heavy bordeaux (wine) colored material for a table cloth.
Then I chose a motif
and yarn, and I have been dutyfully embroidering every Tuesday evening for two hours. I've unpicked it about four times but now I am happy with the 'fill-ins'. This is the result so far:
I work on this table cloth when I am with the ladies.
At home I am working on this linen hand towel. It's cross stitch so I don't dare bring it to the group.
This side is finished and I am in the process of finishing the other side. I would like it to go in my new bathroom, so I better hurry up!
Our new place is coming on steadily. My DH is working on the bathroom, but as this week is such glorious sunny weather, he has decided to tile the big terrace. So the bathroom is as yet unfinished.
The kitchen is taking shape. The carpenter has delivered and put up the carcasses of the kitchen units.
And today he will come and do the doors. (photos on this Friday's blog). We have ordered the granite worktop yesterday. So we're getting there!
That's it for today.
Wishing you all a great week.
