I thought it was about time I showed you my cross stitching update as well. I haven't done alot I know, but slowly and surely I'm getting there.
This is lovely to stitch and would be a quick one to do if I were concentrating on it and not distracting myself with crochet!
Sorry the picture is dark, I'm really not very good at getting a decent picture to show you.
I've been trying out some crochet with wool as well. My tension is rubbish, it all curls up badly.
There's just so much I'd love to do and learn though, if only I had the time.
Things are getting worse at work for poor Steve. Everyone is sooo stressed and it's still been month to month. So the contract is until the end of this month. Now apparently quite a problem over some work has arisen and things aren't looking good at all, so what will happen we don't really know.
On a better note, Tom has a weeks work this coming week. We have to try and get him sorted with something by September if possible, so that we know what he's doing. He's thinking maybe trying to be self employed for a bit at least, to get something going as there doesn't seem alot around workwise right now.
Here's a random fact for you ... today Joe was reading one of our old magazines and informed me that there are around 90 different species of Kingfishers!
I have to confess my complete ignorance here and admit I just thought there was one ... the kingfisher as we know it. (BLUSH). I was amazed that there could be 90!!!
There! I bet you feel all knowledgeable now! haha.
Anyhow, I have an hour to myself, so shall I carry on with my stitching ... or do a little more crochet?
