Update .... stitching


I have at last managed a few stitches on my "sweet bag" well ! in fact more than a few as most of it is done in 1 strand over 1 thread ... and gee it is taking it's time in growing. So how have I managed to do some more.....
With the awful TV programmes .. which is normal for summer holidays ....  so I have been watching old videos to name a few ...
Hello Dolly , Paint your Wagon, Sound of Music, Sense and Sensibility and  Emma by Jane Austin,
Little Women ( 1949) version and any thing I have with Julia Roberts in it  .... which is quite a few.

Tonight I am going to re run Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth .... BBC version  ooooh! he can visit me any time that Mr Darcy .... so that will be about 3 evenings worth of viewing.

As I have seen them all at various times during the last few decades of my life, I don't actually have to watch them just listen and look up on occasions ... so I can stitch.

A Small Dilemma .....

If anyone can tell me how to keep the cat off my lap while I sit in comfort and stitch I would be pleased to hear it ... he is getting a little fed up with getting put outside each time I pick up my needlework.  He is attacking my sewing box and really pulling at the fabric when I have hold of it .. all for attention I guess, may be he is an adolescent cat.

I highly recommend a second cat! I'll hold my little one on my lap for awhile, but if I won't let her sit on my lap, she finds the bigger one to snuggle up with. Beautiful stitching!!
