I had a lovely weekend with my family, although my headaches have been pretty bad due to trouble sleeping lately. Oh well, hopefully that'll straighten itself out soon. I didn't have time for much stitching, but I had some time when I was unable to fall asleep one night. I worked on Live Simply, it's such a wonderful piece!
I love the bright colors (which are kind of washed out in this picture, unfortunately) and simplicity of the design. And the darker blue piece is the combination of two different-colored threads, which I loved! It adds so much depth, and it's just plain lovely! It's also helped me pay more attention to how the threads settle when you make a stitch, so I think I'm making better stitches now. (Hopefully!) :)
After dinner with my family on Saturday night, my wonderful father bought me a cross stitch magazine from Barnes and Noble! Isn't that awesome?
I'm quite excited about the folk art deer pattern, and the rose is lovely. And I learned a new way to start threads - a loop start. I love it, it's so tidy! I must say, I'm also somewhat overly excited by this being a British magazine. Everything's in pounds! And "color" is "colour!" And there was talk of samplers for the diamond jubilee! :D
I hope you had a delightful weekend! :)
