I'm thinking of making Dorothy my focus piece and working on her in between each project so expect to see more regular updates.
I'm currently working on one of the Travelling patterns. I was fortunate to be picked by Bekca to be the next stitcher on Count your Blessings by Shakespear's Peddler. I decided that I wanted a more spring feel for this design so went to my stash and starting with a piece of Silkweaver fabric then selected some Gloriana silks from my collection.
My progress so far, I've almost finished building the house.
With it being the holidays I've been out and about with the children. Of course there has been a visit to Filey to spend the day with my parents. We got a lovely day so went down to spend some time on the beach.
Our other activity was to go and see a couple of films at the Leeds Young People's Film Festival. There was a strand of Disney films so I decided to take the children to see The Jungle Book, as I've never seen it on the big screen and a repeat viewing of 'Frozen'. These films where shown at the Everyman, a boutique cinema with sofa's and armchairs instead of standard seating. The screen we were in had a couple of '70's' style hanging seats, so naturally Christopher 'had' to sit in one of them for Frozen. I had my doubts about this but once the film started he sat absolutely still. I had heard rumors that this was possible but this was the first time I had actually seen it!
