Given our snowy weather yesterday, I managed to pull myself away from the yoyos for a while and do a little more work on my Elizabeth Bradley needlepoint project. Needlepoint is a great thing to do in the winter. I really enjoy the contrast between the howling winds and grey skies outside, and the cozy warm lights and wooly stitching inside.
Unfortunately, I have not made nearly as much progress on this as I hoped. Compared to two months ago, all I have managed was to finish the large bird (partridge?) and fill in a bit below it:
I'd hoped to do a little every day, but my allergies were so bad in January that I couldn't go near it. Do you think I can still get it done before the weather gets too hot? I don't know, I don't feel very hopeful about that. It's moved pretty far down my priority list, but at least it makes a nice change once in a while!
