Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Taking a Breath…

The last two weeks have been rather crazy and I don’t see that stopping at least until sometime in April. So, while I’ve been spending a lot of work hours, I have managed to do a tiny bit of reading and even put in a stitch or two 🙂

Reading Challenge:

29.  A book set somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit

Ben Aaronovitch’s latest entry in the Peter Grant series is Foxglove Summer and it’s set in the English countryside.  Loved it!

Stitching:

Hotel lighting and late work hours doesn’t leave a lot of productive stitching time.  But I can manage something relatively simple now and then.

This is a “blackwork” design by Bird Brain Designs done in blue.  The design is printed on on iron-on sheet and then ironed on the background fabric.  No tracing!  Perle cotton and a sharp needle is all you need to stitch away.  Very little brain power required.  Perfect for my travel project 😉
