The Tea Room
The weeks have flown by since our cruise and I think DH & I are just about ready for another one. After all the post-cruise activities had been taken care of we both came down with the flu which we seem to have finally put behind us in the last two days.
Before we left I mentioned that I was taking 'The Tea Room' along to stitch. After some stitching on board and further stitching these past two weeks here is what it looks like at the moment. Wouldn't you love to drop by?I can hear you thinking "I thought she said she'd finished the border before the cruise." Oh you are so right! Last week I discovered the left side was short one stitch so I had to frog the side and bottom which somehow or other had fit in with the right side (if you make enough mistakes perhaps they even one another out – is that like two negatives make a positive?). Last night I re-stitched the left border & think it's OK now.
Although no back-stitching is required I found the tablecloth needed it as it didn’t show up on the ecru fabric otherwise. I am also considering backstitching the tops of the lamps in a pale golden yellow. When I look at this I can’t figure out what the method in my stitching madness is this time – doesn’t it look strange with work done here there and everywhere - not like me at all. Is it spring fever?
Tuesday was SAL-day and I stitched away on Frederick but there is no point in a picture as most of the stitching was black on black. PLEASE STOP ME FROM EVER STITCHING ON BLACK AGAIN!!! Maybe I'm over-reacting but this fabric is really getting to me. However, I will not be defeated and will keep plugging away until he's finished.
If either Gail (MS Stitch) or Renee (Bible and Broderie) reads this - your blog link no longer leads to your blog. I miss you and your blogs. Hope all is well and look forward to being able to visit you again soon.
Have a great weekend friends!!!
PS: Thank you Isabelle for your quick response. Thanks to you I can reach Renee again.
