Longer Days and Stitching Shows

It's so much nicer for there to be more daylight time now - I'm hoping to get lots of stitching done this summer.  However, I seem to be also trying lots of other different things out - I've had another go at knitting, although I really can't get on with it, but I wanted to try again.  Last week in our evening knit and stitch group, I had a go at needle felting for the first time which was brilliant until I stabbed myself in the finger, and I'm planning to have a go at crochet, which I've never tried, and see how I feel about that.

Next weekend, a friend and I are due to visit the Creative Stitches show at Excel London.  I'm not too sure what to expect, I believe it's going to be a bit different from the show I usually go to at Ally Pally in October.  We managed to get 2 tickets for £8, so even if it's more feature based than shopping, I think it's still worth checking out.  Hopefully I'll report back to you all after next weekend!

Have a great week everyone!

I'm so pleased that spring is here.  London has been lovely and mild the last week or so, and we've had a couple of glorious days over the weekends with the beautiful sunshine.  We managed to try out the Emirates Cable Car which runs from Royal Victoria to North Greenwich, and although I don't like heights so much, we had such a beautiful view over the Docklands that I'd definitely recommend it!

At the moment I'm fighting an absolutely stonking cold, so I hope that will clear up soon as I'm not sure I can spend another day in bed coughing the whole time.

In the meantime, I'm trying to get some fresh air and lots of fruit and veg and fluids as I catch up on some of the TV I've recorded and not got round to watching.  I hope I can get back to the stitching soon!

Only a day late and I am pleased to say that I've made a little progress, hooray!

Still just working on the two pieces so far but hope to start on another next month :)
