Congratulations Marion

I've just had a phone call from Mum telling me that Dartford Library called this afternoon to congratulate Marion on achieving level 3 in the Space Hop Summer reading programme, she was one of just handful to have read all 6 books and she's won a £5 book token.

Very proud of her :)

I've not been stitching much, not at all in fact, but Becky is an extremely talented lady and she is organising The Great Pumpkin Challenge. Sally has just mentioned in her blog that she has joined it too. I read it on Becky's blog yesterday when I was admiring all her wonderful stitching and I thought about taking part too, it might get me motivated and get my act together to actually produce some stitching.

I did dig out an Autumnal chart last night which has a pumpkin on it that I had kitted up 2 years ago, so I might just get started on it tonight while I'm waiting on some beads turning up to finish off the winter humbug.

It's getting cold here now, blustery and wintery and I've just heard that we're possibly to expect frost over the next few days. So it looks like I'll be out there taking the apples off the trees, picking any veg that's still out there and bringing in the gerbera plants into the kitchen until Mum brings up the fleece to wrap around them over the winter. Hope it's not too wet to do that tomorrow.


  1. Well done to Marion. I hope you feel stitchy soon and it is not too wet tomorrow to get your gardening sorted.

  2. Congratulations Marion!

    I don't think I'll get many pumpkins stitched somehow! I only have about three freebie charts that I can find but there's always the Halloween ornaments too. I am not not bothered though as long as I get one done :)

    It certainly is getting cold now. I've got my cardigans out and my socks!


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and for writing a comment, it is much appreciated :)
