Okay, here's the ram!
We found him in our garden this morning and he was there all day! I phoned the police earlier this morning and they came and had a look and said they were trying to find the farmer but then left it here. It came running around the side of our neighbours garden as she has a little brook there. This is where I managed to get this picture of him. Apparently, two years ago they had a cow and a calf here (before we moved in). You'd think we lived on a farm but it is just an estate with houses on. We do have lots of fields and farms nearby though.
I have managed to do a fair bit on the Wiehenburg mystery sampler but I kept getting lots of knots in my thread for some reason and it got me thinking about where the term "frogging" came from. Someone must have made it up. If it was you, please own up! So I was thinking of perhaps a nicer term to call these dratted knots and I came up with "squirrels". Why? Well, to start with I was thinking of knots and that got me thinking of "nuts", which got me thinking of "squirrels", which got me thinking of "big bushy tails", which brought me back to my dratted knots that look like bushy tailed squirrels. Do you think I am mad or can you get the picture??? So if you hear me moaning about my squirrels in future, you'll know what I mean!
So, regardless of my "squirrels" here is my progress!
I emailed Lauren of Sassy's fabrics the other day as I had ordered some fabric from her for the Needleprint Beatrix Potter SAL. I chose Creamy Cocoa and I am using the Antique Wines collection of Victorian Motto threads. Anyway, after a little chit chat with Lauren, she has recommended I go with Tan Marble instead. She thinks it will look better with those colour threads. "Okay" I said. I so hope it is okay as some of you may remember that awful experience with a certain company where the fabric was unuseable (Yes I still have it). Speaking of the SAL, we have 52 members joined the blog already! I can't believe it! So many peeps. I am really looking forward to getting my fabric so I can do some floss tosses.
Righto off to put the children to bed and settle down with some nice stitching. Ahhhh....
