Quick update

No stitchy pics today as my stitching since the middle of last week has been on my square for Julie in the Fair and Square exchange. So no pics until she's received it.

I've also been busily planning what I'm going to stitch on Cheryl's RR and getting myself completely tied in knots over it. I know I'm worrying about this far more than I need to, but I've come to the concludion that I just won't be entirely happy with any of the ideas I've come up with so far. I've ended up today ordering a couple of new charts which I think I will be much happier with. As I said, I know I'm worrying about this far more than necessary, but it's just the way I am. Hopefully I'll be able to get started by the end of the week.

For the next few days, I might even find the time to stitch on one of my neglected WIPs. I was looking at my Chatelaines the other evening and feeling the withdrawal symptoms! So here's my chance to put in a few more stitches.






As there are no stitchy pics today, here are a few more from my holiday.




This is Tarn Hows which we walked round one day. I can just remember visiting this lake about 30 years ago, and swimming in it! On that same holiday, I also swam in Coniston. I have a feeling that at the time I was relatively new to swimming in such deep water.


My neighbour told me that Tarn Hows is one of those areas that used to belong to Beatrix Potter, before being handed over to the National Trust.

Ive loved seeing all these pictures from your hols, beautiful.
Awww, i hope you find something for my RR. I love anything LHN so im sure i will love anything you choose. Please don't worry about it! I had to order a new chart to stitch on Donna's. The chart and threads have all arrived but the RR hasn't yet. Donna sent it ages ago, it's our mail service :(

I'm like you, I spend more time worrying about gifts/projects for other people than if I'm stitching something for myself. Good luck on coming up with something you like for the RR.

Beautiful photos!

I always have a hard time deciding what to stitch for others, too!
