I promised I wouldn't inflict a daily post about my slow progress along the Camino de Santiago...
This is my 11th day, and I have travelled 12 miles. There's still a long way to go! The scenery is delightful. To begin with it felt as though I was walking along the kind of country lane I associate with the West Country. However, the lane suddenly switchbacked through a series of steep hairpin bends, and the houses, the first for miles, are distinctly different.
I'm now at the bottom of the valley, I think. That's my marker in the bottom corner; a bit of the tartan cross stitch Ang created.
One reason for enjoying this virtual walk is the weather; during these dull, cold days it is very pleasant to imagine that I am walking through leafy lanes in the warm sun.
A parcel has arrived of stuff I ordered from the wool warehouse.
A ball of white dk soft yarn, some multicoloured dk, a fluffy pompom for the 5 minute beanie, and a metre of bobble trim which I'm hoping will make good bunny rabbit tails.
And, most importantly, three skeins of embroidery thread. I wonder what those are for?!?
I love the way they all come carefully tucked inside a drawstring bag.
The Christmas Card idea... if you have survived making scandi hearts you might enjoy next week's paper craft. I found the second and third ones surprisingly easy, after I'd made a rough prototype.
This is version 3, after I unglued and unfolded it to see how it 'works'. It's a sort of magic book, which folds and unfolds. Version 4 tomorrow!
