This is my current progress on Grazing Sheep by Scarlet Letter. It is such a glorious sampler. I keep raving about the colours that are in it, but they are worth raving about.
As you can see I figured out the border. It is very pretty and looks quite lacy.
Judy from Crazy 4 Books asked the other day where were the sheep. Well, here is one slowly appearing. I am now back into over ones and I am half way up a tree at the moment, but I thought this morning that I would quickly do the outline of one of the sheep to prove that they are there. There are 7 sheep altogether. I noticed that 2 of them have dark faces.
While I was stitching this sheep this morning I was remembering one of my trips to England where we drove around for a month and we travelled over a few of the Moors e.g. Dartmoor and Yorkshire in Bronte Country. The sheep with the dark faces reminded me of the Yorkshire Moors. I was also remembering going on the first day of this expedition to Salisbury Cathedral and seeing Jane Austen's resting place. Ah memories. I quite enjoyed visiting a lot of English Cathedral's and Churches. I always remember visiting one Cathedral where they were having a choir practice. Beautiful. I am very partial to listening to choir boys. They voices of angels.
We have had a lovely long weekend for Easter. It was lovely as I saw my other 2 Sons and lovely DIL. It was lovely to spend some time together. The Easter Bunny paid a visit and eggs were enjoyed by everyone. Hopefully the waist bands don't expand to much.
On the knee front everything is slowly getting back to normal. Although I had a bit of a fright a little while ago when I nearly tripped over. Knee is a bit sore now. I just have to be careful with what I do.
Thank you to Deb from Lavender Rose Ramblings for giving me a Sunshine Award for my blog. I have tried to cut and paste it onto this posting but for some reason it won't work for me.
I have to nominate 12 other people for this award, but the way I am going today, I don't think it will work so I would like to nominate everybody who kindly visits me. Your comments and thoughts really mean a lot to me. Thank you.
Well, my youngest is on School Holidays again for 2 weeks. There goes to the peace and quiet. Although it is good that he is able to help me.
In case you are wondering where Hannah Lancaster is, I am taking a small break from working on her on Sundays to allow my friend Tawny who leads a very busy life to catch up with me. I am more of a lady of leisure at the moment. Hannah will be back again in a couple of weeks. I have been working on Grazing Sheep instead.
