I have really enjoyed stitching on my new project – the prayer rug for my daughter, and I think I’ve made good progress, slowed down a couple of days ago when I dropped a draw full of frozen food on my arthritic hand!!! So here’s the progress so far (the fabric hasn’t come out very well – it’s actually a light apricot colour). The only question now is whether to add the backstitching that is called for in the pattern. Anyone that knows me, knows that I absolutely HATE backstitching. So do I bother or not – all input appreciated 🙂
On the home front, I can’t believe that my summer holiday in England is nearly over. I know, I know, I’ve been here since 8 June so it should be enough, but there are less than 2 weeks to go till our return to Algeria and to be honest I am dreading it. Having to now think about it and plan things is just making me more stressed. When I was chatting to my mum the other day I told her it felt like I was returning to prison. My daughter (who was eavesdropping LOL) piped up with “it’s not THAT bad mummy, it’s more like house arrest” – not sure if that makes me feel any better LOL. So anyhowI think I have all the shopping done that I need to take back, just the wonderful job of trying to make it all fit into the suitcases to come.
