I managed to do a bit more on Patchwork Sampler, I finished the purple design and the red and black, I can't fault this sampler, I have come across a few pattern errors, places where I have added a stitch to balance the pattern.
I love these three circular designs, there is a fourth, which I have not stitched yet, waiting to check all the designs around it to check the shade of green to use. I have had lovely comments regarding this work.
Work went quickly and was OK, I have been tired all week, so I am not stitching, yesterday I rested for most of the day. I am sleeping on my back, which is not my normal sleeping position, so I wake up a few time each night, which does not help. I have been watching both series of Downton Abbey, I am half way through the 2nd season. I did watch them on TV, but I am enjoying watching them again. I am also reading "Lady Almina and the real Downton Abbey", a friend has passed it to me, it's based around Highlere Castle, the location for the filming of Downton Abbey, and the family who own it, set in a similar time frame.
Today we are at a friends house for lunch, there will be about 12 of us, we all get on well together, it's sunny but cold, so we will be inside for most of the time, I won't see Fliss and the boys, they have a tummy upset, and we are keeping apart, I do miss not seeing Josh, but we speak on the phone, he has been a very good little boy, whilst mummy has been ill.
