Elizabeth is on the frame and after a few nervous moments soothed by Marsha and Sandra's words of advice has begun to take shape.
It is very hot today, far too hot to wallk the dogs, garden, shop, cook, iron or anything else remotely like chores that I should be doing. Instead it has been spent with my needle listening to an audio book in the shade offered by the verandah. The gentle breeze coming off the sea is very welcome.
The french doors are wide open and two little birds have flown in and been shooed back out. I think I will have to find space for two little birds in Miss Cox.
Ruthy came back from the framers and has been hung with The Blue Ribbon Sampler, SDW and Dona Dorothea. Her colours brighten the group.
On Miss Cox I have had a dilemia with AVAS 5386 and 5384.
There is hardly any difference so I have chosen a lighter shade to work with 5386. I am also having a problem with 2224, the thread is shedding its fibres as I stitch. I have had this once before with AVAS so I have also substituted it.
It is Father's Day in the UK tomorrow so not sure if much will be acheived although the lure of the Football (Soccer) World Cup may mean that Ray will not want to stray too far from the TV.
