Grand Marquoir is on the frame!
I've sorted out quite a few different colours and tried various different layouts for which colour to put where, but keep changing my mind. I'm going to wait till each motif is stitched then choose what colour looks good next to it, i've wasted way too much time playing with threads and could have stitched another motif at least in that time.
Postie delivered a nice surprise today from Karan, it was a book by Jacky Newcomb 'The Angel Lady' called Angels Watching Over Me. Karan has read quite a few by this author and i commented that it sounded a good book. I was brought up to believe in the afterlife as my mum and dad were both active members in the local spiritualist church and we spent many Sundays there. I have been really interested in following Karan's alternative blog and the journey she is taking. Thank you Karan for your kindness, i'm going to enjoy reading about other peoples experiences in this book.
Tomorrow in the UK will be Mothering Sunday, i hope all you mums have a lovely day. My thoughts will be with those of you with angel mums and like me those who have angel children too.
