I had Tuesday off work so I did get a lot of stitching done while watching my Larkrise to Candleford DVD (fantastic english period drama) I mostly worked on Tuscany Town mandala and getting along just fine.
I did a bit of stitching shopping the other day too, and went to Needle Arts in Christchurch. This shop mostly has designers I have never heard of, but I did get this book...
I have been wanting this book ever since I saw it in the Inspirations magazine, who knows when I will ever get to do it, but the pictures are pretty! Its published by countrybumpkin.com.au who also do the Inspirations and Smocking magazines.
I have started biking to work again, it's about 15km and takes 40 minutes, so by the time I get to work I am awake! On the way from work I take the long way and do by training then, so with a bag on my back for extra resistance and a 2 hour training ride, it works quite well and when I get home I can relax. (Saves on petrol costs too)
