Another Sophia Update

I'm sorry that I have been such a bad blogger, but I have been away staying with my Dad while my Sister has been away on holidays. I have been keeping Dad company.

It was lovely staying with him for a little while, although I found that for me it was a lot colder in Sydney than it is in the Mountains. Dad and I had a lovely time together. We caught up with my Aunts and Uncles. It was lovely seeing them, as I don't see them that often.

Here is my current update on both Sophia and Harriet. Both are looking lovely and I really enjoy working on both of them. Hannah is still in the mix, but I haven't touched her for awhile. Hopefully she will be making an appearance very soon.

I love the colours that are in Sophia and I am sure that she will look lovely hanging near my Grazing Sheep sampler. I have nearly finished the middle section, then look out sheep here we come lol.

Harriet now has all of her windows and her garden. I thought that instead of going down the bottom that I would head up towards the top and then do the bottom last. I really enjoy stitching Harriet and I am sure that when I have finished her she will look lovely hanging with my sheep sampler collection. I have a lot of patterns with sheep in them. I just need to sit down and do them. I'm finding though that a lot of the patterns that I want to do would be better done on 40ct linen and I am rapidly running out of it. My LNS doesn't have any and my other store in Sydney seems to have run out as well. I think that I will have to investigate further.
Thank goodness the sun is out today. We have had a lot of cold wet weather lately and it is nice to occasionally see the sun. I don't mind the cold weather as long as I am warm.
My youngest is on school holidays again and he has been enjoying spending time with one of his
Brothers and my DIL as well as my Dad who came up for a few days. We went for a few drives out into the country and it was lovely to see things that we don't normally see.
Thank you for your lovely comments regarding my work. I always enjoy reading them and it is always lovely to make new friends. I hope that you have a lovely week.
