Good progress

It’s strange how some days just appear to have more hours in the day than others.  Yesterday was a prime example – I started off by going to my parents for breakfast (something I do every week) and also cut my dad’s hair while I was over there.  Came back home and did the ironing and then went down to MIL’s for mid morning coffee and a chat.  When I got back home I had a surprise visit from our daughter and family so playtime with Logan and Savannah for an hour.  When they had left I sat and did a little stitching on the Cornwall Cottage Sampler before going to collect DH from the train station (he’d been to see ACDC at Wembley with his brother).  On our way home we did some food shopping and when it was unpacked I was able to do some more stitching before cooking tea.  More stitching after tea for half an hour and then the garden borders finally got weeded.  A little more stitching then it was time to watch a little TV before going to bed.  I like days like that so productive and a great feeling of achievement.
I have probably complete about half of the next page on the sampler.  Next week I will start working on the base of the basket and with any luck I might just get another page completed.  Here is how it is looking so far.

Alice is looking lovely, I saw in Justine's blog you were having a SAL together, lovely. Super pic of your evening walk. Cornish sampler is growing beautifull, I love to see that each week and have had 2 instalments this blog reading session lol.
Wishing your son lots of happy times in his new home, and you lots of fun in your new craft room.

Hi - I have just found your blog from reading a post on Justine's blog. Really enjoyed having a browse. Love the cards you made with the flower papers and the travel journal. Your cottage sampler looks wonderful. I do a variety of crafts i.e card making,crochet, jewellery making, knitting, scrapbooking as well as cross stitching. Many years ago cross stitching was the only craft hobby I did but now I seem to be collecting new hobbies every week. Joan at

What a lot you packed into one day! I really need to get myself sorted out. I couldn't do half of that!
Lovely progress on your beautiful sampler.
