Not such a quick stitch then!

I mentioned in my last post that this would be a quick stitch.
I'm still not stitching as much as I used to.
And I spotted a mistake and had to rip, rip, rip it out!
Not all of it, just most of the middle section of wing.
The ripping took almost as long as the stitching.
Oh dear, never mind, it's the journey that counts, not getting there fast.
Lindsay was spot on with her suggestion that it may be the dragonfly, by Sparklies.
You can't really see it in my pictures, but the fabric I'm stitching on has the prettiest sparkles all through it.
I think I have resolved to do another letter in the alphabet after I finish this piece, then I have another larger project lined up. It's chart is spread over several pages, so maybe if I'm disciplined with myself I can alternate between the two for a while.
Ha! as all crafters know, plans can and do often change!
Work in the garden has slowed considerably.
Though I do seem to be spending quite a bit of time with a rake in my hands.
Leaves on the lawn is not good, especially if we get a bit of rain.
And there seems to be a plentiful supply of both at the moment.
I think I need to build a compost area.
Tony disagrees!
A day off work today, but I'm trapped at home awaiting a delivery.
I saved a few jobs knowing this was due to happen.
Then I'll stitch.
