Lakeland Update

The last few days I think I have been suffering the after effects of whatever I had last week. I have had no energy and no inclination to do anything. The boys were so surprised that over the weekend I didn't sew or even knit.

I also seemed to have caught the "reading bug", but after reading three books in four days, (and they weren't small books!)I think I am ready to get stitching again, children's activities permitting!

I did keep up with the stitching on the Lakeland Tapestry, but I am not sure how much progress is actually noticeable. Most of the stitching this week was on the highlight colours in the water area. This is to make it easier to do a straight run on the main water colour. I will check first if there are any more to do in the next inch or so, and then will concentrate on the main colour. Hopefully, by the end of the week, the water level will have noticeably risen.

Sometimes having a reding bug is also good! Can't wait to see the result of your project Lakeland!

I'll love to see how Lakeland turns out!

It's good to have a break from stitching now and then, just makes it more enjoyable when the bug bites again. I'm off to the Lake District for a week leaving on Saturday, can't wait!
