A lovely few days

Yay - I've finally put in a few more stitches in on St Petersburg as I'm waiting for a LHN pattern to arrive for Cheryl's RR. It really has made for a lovely few days.


I took some pics this morning - I'm still on part 4, but this week I've completed the section along the top and am ready to start working my way down the sides.



It was wonderful to get back to the different colours, stitches and textures, and of course, all that sparkle from the beads and petite treasure braid. It's so different from everything else I've been working on recently. I'm going to keep going with it for now until the LHN design arrives, although I'm sorely tempted to work on something completely different and non-stitched!

I've been really bad this week at commenting on other people's blogs, I am reading them, but I just don't haven the energy these days to comment as I should. There are a couple of things going on in my life right now that just seem to be sapping my energy. Hopefully, I'll perk up a bit again soon and find a bit more energy and enthusiasm (hard to be enthusiastic when you're completely knackered!).

Wow, St Petersburg looks great! I don't think i'd have the patience for such a piece, but it looks so lovely.
Hope things get better for you. Have a nice weekend :)

Your St Petersburg looks wonderful!! I like the fabric you are using for it. It looks better on paler fabrics.
