Heavenly Grace...

Thanks everyone for your comments re my last message - they were much appreciated. I am aware that compared to others I haven't got a lot to complain about. This year has been a continual 'shifting the weight from one foot to the other' process... I am not particularly unhappy - just frustrated about the circumstances which I find myself in... I have felt a little isolated of late and that has played heavily on me... But enough angst!!!!

Today I really 'slothed out' and watched 'The Book Group' a TV series which I borrowed from the local library... It is a bit of a 'black' comedy... But it appealed to my sense of humor. The series deals with an American girl newly arrived in Scotland who forms a book group as an attempt to meet and make new friends... Of course nothing goes to plan and quite often the books are the last things to be discussed... The human relationships are quite well played out... It has been on the ABC and I missed it so I was happy when I saw it in the library... E says that it had a couple of series...

I am really getting close to finishing the stitching on M's and I have decided to start something else - this one I have had for quite a few years... The project is at the top of the page - it is called 'Heavenly Grace' and is part of the 'Gold Collection' by Dimension. It is stitched on 18 ct ivory aida - and is quite small. So as soon as M's is completed 'Heavenly Grace' is going to be added to the fray... Something has made me decide to get on with some of these things I have and give them 'life'... :-)) I am just about all mermaid(ed) out and I will look forward to feeling the caress of angel wings...

And so, with the threading of a needle I will be travelling from the depths of the ocean kingdom to the heavenly realms... Now who says Life is boring...
Ok - I am off to do some more...

Hang about..what about Carol's 50th birthday present? Oh all right I know - we can't have just one thing on the go, can we?! We really are going to have to get a weekend off together somewhere and just stitch (with a bit of eating, sleeping and walking thrown in). I was telling my friend L last night about wanting to go away for a weekend and stitch and she looked horrified. "Just stitch??" she repeated. "Yup!" I replied happily.

Your stitching weekend sounds like heaven ... people who don't stitch, just have no clue what they're missing out on! :) Your new planned piece looks gorgeous - I've got a couple of Dimensions ones here too, that I haven't started. Will look forward to seeing your progress :)
