A Nice Surprise

Yesterday didn't turn out at all as expected. For a start I actually did catch up on the much delayed housework and ironing, mainly because it only the athletics I'm really interested in now so ironing and watching athletics go together quite well. As usual once I'd made a start on one job I got onto a roll and jobs started to get ticked off the list. The only negative is that now I've caught up with the washing I have another big pile of ironing to do again.

With a clean house all to myself and nothing worth watching on the telly last night the choice was between sewing or reading. On this occasion A Matter Of Honour won and early this morning I finished it. A good read, but the ending was a little weak, almost like the author ran out of ideas. Lorna Doone is next, I think. A book I have owned for a long time and never got around to reading. The print is very small, as it's a very old copy, so I hope I'm not going to struggle too much with it.

No progress on the sewing front although this beautiful fabric and thread has arrived from Jayne's Attic, ready for the Good Friends Count SAL which starts at the end of the month.

The material has the delightful name of Chocolate Crush even though it looks pink to me.

The nice surprise was that I have had one of my photos published in our local paper.

The irony being that of all the photos I have sent in I consider it the least interesting one, but if they used it I'm not going to moan. You don't get warned that they are using your picture it's just a case of opening the paper and finding it there. I took the picture in May and had forgotten they had it, looked at it and thought that looks familiar, I wonder who took that, to find my name underneath it.

Hi Angela it is the Beatrix Potter by Needleprint which is no longer in print but Jacqueline Holdsworth put it out as a pdf file a while back so that we could buy the pattern.
