Harriet Is Almost Finished

I'm sorry that I haven't been blogging lately. I seem to have lost the blogging bug. Every day lately, I think that I should update my blog, but something comes along to distract me and before I know it the day is nearly over.

I have been slowly plodding along with Harriet Burry and she is really a beautiful sampler, but she can be a bit of pain in the you know where. She has her tricky moments. She is quite a large sampler so it is a bit hard to take a decent full size photo of her.
I am slowly working on the border which is beautiful. I had so much trouble with her over the weekend that she nearly ended up in the garbage bin. Well, not quite, but I thought about it for a second or two. Luckily I think I have nailed her and I will continue on until she is finished. I am really looking forward to doing something else. I think Hannah Lancaster might be the one as I am trying to finish her before the New Year. I can only hope.
We have had an amazing lot of weather here over the last few days. It is Spring. One day it is really beautiful. The next day it is freezing and we have to light our fire again. On Saturday we even had a heavy down pour of snow, but unfortunately not enough to settle. No wonder people end up with colds etc at this time of the year.
Thank you for all your lovely comments regarding my work. I enjoy reading them. I'm sorry that I have become such a bad blogger.
