Wayward Garden Update

Here's my most recent progress photo of Wayward Garden :) I'm now three quarters of the way round the inner border, just five more sides of border to go (there's another border after this one)

I mentioned in a previous post that I had placed an order with Isabelle's Etsy shop. I only placed the order on Friday so I was thrilled to find the parcel waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. Thank you so much Isabelle

The embroidered t-shirt is for the brand new granddaughter of a stitching friend and the bag is for me :) Of course they had to be thoroughly checked out by Tansy LOL

To answer a couple of questions from the comments:
Claire, I did enjoy Restoration, I think I picked it up after your recommendation somewhere.

Barbara, It's fairly straight forward why I get plenty of time for reading and stitching, we don't have any children and my DH works away from home Monday to Friday most weeks. So I'm home alone a lot and when I've finished my chores I can usually manage around 2 hours of stitching a day. I also commute to work which is when I get most of my reading done. I have to say that if I didn't have my stitching I don't think I would be able to cope so well with being on my own so much :(

Wayward is looking great!

Aw, and here I thought you'd found some way of using one eye for reading a book and the other for reading a chart. I was hoping you'd enlighten me! ;)

I also stitch when Niek is away - the time passes much more pleasantly and it keeps me out of the kids' snacks! LOL!

Isabelle's bag and Tshirt are wonderful!!!
