Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Canvaswork rotation over

I've been sat up since early this morning stitching the rest of my rotation slot for this piece - I was up early to drive out to the airport, but Mum's flight has been delayed due to the late arrival into Auckland from Los Angeles, so she's now approx 6 hours late leaving, and consquently arriving. Seeing as my plans have been upset for the day, I just decided to keep on stitching on Pacific Pohutukawa until my slot finished, or until I got fed up ... which just so happens to be right at the same time! The main reason I'm feeling fed up is that the thumb on my right hand is quite red and sore from pulling that damned rayon through the threads on the back to hold it secure - so now it feels a bit uncomfortable to stitch with. Oh well, at least I got my rotation commitments finished for this piece, and now I can move on with the next thing on my agenda ... Bordeaux Sampler, followed by my next (and final one with a deadline) charity block, which is due to be received 15 August. After that I have my redwork exchange, needleroll exchange, and round robin to complete ... me thinks my rotation won't be looked at for a while again now hmmm ... ;)

Time to go check the arrivals info again, and see if it's time to start driving to the airport :)

Sorry to hear your mum's flight has been delayed. Hopefully you will see her soon enough. ;)

The Pacific Pohutukawa piece is wonderful, the colors are so vibrant. Hope your thumb heals quickly.
