Umm, I think I said last week that having completed part 3 of MTM, I would be concentrating on Paradigm Lost. Well, I lied, a bit anyway. I think I managed the grand total of about 2 hours on PL and have been neglecting it ever since.
The reason? Well, I've been having far too much fun working on Nova! So much so that I've completed row 3 and look to be on schedule to complete row 4 this week! I've been keeping Nova as my 'bedroom' project that I stitch on in bed if I'm having rest when I get home from work, or late in the evening before I settle down to sleep. The plan was just to do the odd block here and there, but I've just been enjoying it too much and last week it crept into my evening stitching slot too.
5.18pm - looks like Blogger doesn't want to talk to Photobucket. And I really liked that slideshow too. Well, if you're really interested, you can always look at it here. Otherwise, you'll just have to make do with the whole thing.
And the whole thing looks like this -
Or at least, it looked like that at the weekend. I think I've added another 3 or 4 block since then.
I also made 3 of these at the weekend, having been reminded via the other Lesley's blog, how much I like fruit loaf and that I've been meaning to bake some for a few months!
I couldn't believe how quickly my neighbour appeared after they came out of the oven and managed to walk off with one. And between the 3 of us, we've nearly finished a second now. Number 3 is in the freezer.
I've been bringing some fruit loaf to work with me this week for lunch, but it hasn't survived that long! I've been feeling in need of a treat of some kind by about 11am as I'm finding work rather frustrating right now! It seems that, because I'm going on maternity leave in about 6 weeks, this has given all sorts of people permission not to talk to me. Consequently, I'm feeling a bit left out. And unfortunately, because I am going on maternity leave in about 6 weeks, it doesn't seem to be worth doing anything about it. It's not as if there's a major problem, just a bunch of frustrating, niggly little things.
Ho hum, roll on 5.30!
