I picked my design which happens to be called Emu Takes a Duck from Smeedesigns Stitchery Pattern, Australian Afternoon and ironed my whisperweft on the back, gathered my supplies, found a favourite spot to sit, made sure my OT-lite was nearby.
This seat is perfect for stitching. It is in a corner surrounded by two windows and I can keep an eye on the weather, the birds, the wind in the trees and any passers by. There is lots of natural light which is something I sorely lacked in my last house.
I got all the grass stitched and the wicket keepers baggy green cap but then it was time to get some other jobs done and take the dogs for a walk. I went up to the dam and will be blogging about that on Cath @ Home very shortly but let me tease with you with a pic of our sunset last night.
I cooked my farmer a lovely dinner and then I settled to watch a new episode of Midsomer Murders and stitched my way through that. I finished stitching the wickets and the flat of the bat as well as making a start on the Emu's feathers.
Right, now I am off to see how everone else did.
