Thanks to all who read and or commented on my last posting.
This is what happened over the last week.
Prairie Schooler Alphabet
This is where I got to last week
Here is where I left it last week
This is my second project in my new rotation system and here is where I started from
Again I was counting stitches on this project to get to the monthly total required for the FB challenge in The Ultimate Cross Stitch group. I managed to do 1,907 stitches on this project and thereby with last weeks total have completed the challenge. I did not get as much as I would like done on this either as I have been experiencing headaches in the evenings so have not been as productive as I normally am, had to take more breaks and work for less time. But I did enjoy working the bottom section because of all the lovely colours in it.
This is where I left it last Saturday

I also got the my other ATC completed and posted and as it has been received I can post it here. The theme was Houses.
Also this week it was announced that DMC were releasing a tin filled with 35 new shades of floss. So I posted that I would like this item and my husband who never actually orders anything stitchy for me (he does buy me lots of things but I usually order it and he pays), pre ordered them for me. As I have always maintained a complete set of DMC I would have got these eventually, now I don't need to and get a nice tin with them.
TV and Books
I finished watching season 2 of How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix. I continued watching Victoria, and the second story in Strike episode one which strangely is only a two part story after the first one being 3 episodes. Not sure why that is. I also watched Doctor Foster again and my opinion is she is unhinged still and to be honest I think they could have not done a second series, it had a conclusion and I am not sure bringing back was good. I think the best new show I watched this week was Liar a six part drama with Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd in. It is the story of teacher and surgeon who go on a date, she invites him into her home to phone for a taxi and they have a drink and sleep together. The issue is did she consent and in the morning she decides she didn't and goes to the police. So it is a case of He Said , She said. It was only the first episode so not sure where this will go but so far very interesting. Whilst working on Viennese Waltz on Saturday evening I watched a documentary on Netflix called The Investigator - A British Crime Story, it was very interesting and the 'murderer' (I put it in inverted commas because no body has ever been found and he did not own up to it at trial, although convicted) was so manipulative. As for books I have been struggling a bit as I have been quite tired. I have managed to read a few more chapters of The Cottingley Secret but that is about all.
Out and About
The only thing I really did this week was return our son to university in Cardiff. He was really keen to get back for his final year and his new halls are very nice having been in the same room for two years he is now in the block opposite and he seemed very happy when we left him on Friday afternoon, they were having a foody thing in a marquee in the evening so he was happy about that.
So that's it for this week, I hope you have all had good stitchy weeks, on the whole I am pleased with what I got done and look forward to more of the same in the coming week.
Bye for now
