Happy Dance and an ORT Report

I spent last weekend at the flat in Nottingham with Eddy. I've had a small piece stashed behind his sofa down there for any time we spend the weekend there and I've not taken anything down with me - a little kit of Lincoln Cathedral that I bought in a LNS in Lincoln a few years ago. While I was down in Nottingham I finished all of the xs, bar a small area where I'd run out of the right colour floss. Knowing I'd never remember to take the floss down to Nottingham with me, and being so close to finishing, I brought the piece home with me. And here is the finished piece:

Lincoln Cathedral from Castle Grounds

Since finishing this I've not had much time for stitching - last night I went over to Lou's and tonight I've only just made it to the sofa. Partly because I remembered I needed to take a photo of my ORT jar for the TUSAL:

When I popped outside to empty the compost while I was cooking tea the sky was a lovely deep indigo colour, with just the smallest crescent moon showing - a beautiful view and a brilliant reminder to me to join this month's TUSAL!

It's been a long week, but this weekend we have a lazy one planned. Eddy will watch the rugby and I hope to finish quilting my first ever quilt... Providing I remember to pop out tomorrow and buy some more of the thread I ran out of!

Happy stitching x
