needle and thread withdrawal symptoms

Its the Easter holidays and with Terry away (miss you babe) it's just me and J here at home. My awake time is spent amusing and tidying up after J, squeezing in meagre bits of housework and chatting to my beloved. There is no time over for a bit of cross stitch. As if to rub my nose in it, my parcel of fabric and threads needed to make the new Brenda Keyes sampler 'over the hills and far away' turned up. And all I could do was stroke it.....

In true british style it rained today and I was struck by a rare brainwave. I could kill two birds with one stone. I could take my little monkey to the soft play centre for rowdy climbing jumping and sliding and while he did all that I could sit quietly in a corner with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and my sewing.

Sadly when I arrived it seemed everyone else in the universe had had similar ideas and in order to avoid standing I had to squeeze myself into an inch or two of seat and position my legs so my feet couldn't rest on the ground. I had to cling on to my seat edge in order to stay on and so didn't even get to open my work bag.

Oh well.... maybe tomorrow I'll find a sewing window....

  1. Oh I am so jealous you have the Brenda Keyes sampler "over the hills" I have been eyeing that up myself. I look forward to seeing your progress if you ever get a chance to stitch!!
