Good morning bloggers!
Well this past weekend the slump that hit my knitting hit my stitching. Friday night I worked on hubby’s hunting picture and didn’t make much progress. I’m only showing you an after picture as it doesn’t look that much different. I still can’t get into this one and I’m thinking of changing up my rotation a bit with working on this one in mind to get it done. More on that in a moment.
Saturday was a wash out stitching wise. With weekly housework chores to catch up on and the children’s hairs to cut, although James no longer wants me to cut his rofl I must not be cutting it cool. It ended up being late Saturday evening when I got sitting to stitch, I normally can get an hour in the afternoon or so, and then I didn’t feel like stitching so I knit.
Sunday I worked on an ornie. This one is going into the box of proposed Christmas gifts this year but I don’t know its looking quite lovely already and it still needs half of its beading putting on. Its a Mill Hill kit of Candy Canes. I’ll finish this up this weekend and make it up.

Then on Sunday night it was the lovely Mrs Darcy Sampler. I still love this piece so much. After having a bit of a wash out all weekend I felt I needed an extra little boost so on went my Pride and Prejudice dvd. I had only time for the short version, i.e the one with Keira Knightly and the lovely Matthew MacFadyen, he’s no Colin Firth but when short on time a perfectly good substitute. The long version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle I shall be keeping for my Mothers Day treat and I can hear hubby and the children groaning already lol.
Here are some photos from two of my favourite scenes in the movie, and everyone can be doing with a little Mr Darcy to start of the week I reckon 🙂
Oh and I did make great progress on the sampler, I wasn’t totally caught up in the film. I reckon the film helped with getting so much done as looking at the chart I have about a third left and I’m finished. The frame is also on order for this so hopefully it will be here when I finish.

As I said earlier I am thinking of mixing up my rotation a bit. I was reading this piece HERE about rotations and having the perfect one, something I’m always on the look for, I may give this one a go starting with hubby’s hunting piece. If any of you have this rotation I’d love to hear your thoughts and if your looking for a rotation or ideas on one this makes an interesting read on the subject.
There I leave you. A post on will be coming on Thursday with updates on the dishcloth and reading challenge and also details of a giveaway I’m having in my dishcloth challenge so keep an eye out for that.
