The television is on the Australian OpenTennis, it will be all weekend. Lucy and Ian are going to the cricket later on today. Perth Scorchers are playing, it is a sell out. So I will be home watching tennis and doing my cross stitch. Last year I had planned to get into cross stitch in June. Well June has well and truly gone, didn't get to mark that one of the list!!! So this year there was no procrastination. Well a little!!! You see I have always worked on Aida cloth when doing cross stitch. So I dived in the deep end and I am working on even weave linen. I am loving it. I had a dud needle that came with the kit. So after battling with it,yesterday I found my packet of new tapestry needles and I am enjoying it so much better.
I have been looking at lots of blogs that do cross stitch, gosh they are inspirational but I think I should be stitching instead of looking.
Summer time means lots of reading for me. I love a great range of books. I picked up an Autobiography the other week by Clarrisa Dickson Wright. You may remember her from the television show "Two Fat Ladies" There was so much information in this book and I highly recommend this book. I picked it up from our local library.
Lucy and I had to go to Perth yesterday. So after attending to what needed doing we went to the movies to watch "The Descendants". Gosh it was a great movie but if you intend going please take a hankie. It is rather sad.
I hope you all have a great weekend doing something you love.
