Hand stitching

Some stitching has been taking place. Strangely, for me, it has been all by hand. With the move here and everything else that has been going on I have not felt like getting out the sewing machine. My workroom is still being used as a bedroom and there is no table for my sewing machine yet.

Coco has decided she quite likes hand stitching. It means that someone has a lap. She doesn't seem very concerned that she is sharing it with pins and needles.

Just so long as she gets the attention.

This is my latest piece for the Sky's the Limit group. You can see the details about this piece here. I wonder if you can guess which film this is before going to look at the other post.

No, this isn't the only piece of work I have completed recently. Sadly the other piece is part of a Chinese Whispers challenge and I cannot share anything about it until the whole sequence of pieces is complete. This will be in November.

This is the tree outside my workroom. We are not sure what it is - it might be a flowering cherry. The builders put in flowering cherry trees in each of the gardens of the houses around us. It will be interesting to find out when the spring finally arrives.

Sadly, I do have to report that my father-in-law died last weekend.

Hope the moving process is going well. Coco at least seems to be enjoying it. :)

Thanks so much Toni. Yes, she has settled in really well. Surprising, since at 18 she is not a youngster. Also, her brother Felix died just before Christmas.
An amazingly resilient cat, Coco is really happy here.
