New start

 I have finished sections 1 & 2, of Dream sampler,
The colours so far are my choice, and I love them, the next level are blues and I am not changing them, I do not use blue's much. This just feels so pretty. I have not been stitching much I have had a nasty tummy bug, and most of this week has been in bed, very unlike me.
 Yesterday afternoon I did start another large project, Grand Marquoir, you can view it here it's a free pattern I found the link on Annelein's blog, almost every one I have seen stitched in red and white, well you know me I am always different, I was going to use a natural linen, but I had this green in my stash, I was shopping for silks (floss) and saw DMC mouline 4150, which is soft randoms with cream, yellow and peach. They go so well together. Check out Julie's colour scheme, full of colour, great work
 I have been watching the 1st and 2nd series  of Miranda, she is so funny, and just what is needed when feeling ill, I really recommend giving her a viewing, she makes me chuckle all the way through.
Nothing much has happened here, loads of rain and very windy, but we are warm and snug inside, I am hoping to be able to eat something today, not had a meal since Sunday, Oh well next week I will be using this as a kick start to my losing weight.
Have a good weekend.


  1. Your Dreams Sampler is nice.
    I stitch it, too. My choice of colours is blue and green.
