An ornie finish
It's been a remarkably unproductive week, there's even been nights when I've not wanted to stitch!!! But I did manage to get this ornie finished. It's the Mini Bellpull by the Drawn Thread from JCS 1999. It's just missing the charm which I'll add when I get to the finishing.
However because I haven't been stitching I have been reading and I got two books finished this week that I really enjoyed. The first was Jane and Mary Findlaters Crossriggs , one of the Virago Modern Classic series it's vaguely based on Emma. Set in a small village outside Edinburgh at the turn of the 20th century and tells the story of Alex Hope and her struggles to keep her families heads above the poverty line. The other book was Jane Green's Babyville, highly entertaining chick lit that provided a much needed evenings escapism.
