I was off work for a couple of weeks recently with workplace related stress. Actually I debated whether to tell anyone that because it has a kind of 'you just need to get on with it' connotation to it, a bit like if you tell someone you are depressed and get told to 'pull yourself together'. But there it is. Anyway, last Monday I came home from my first day back and burst into tears as soon as I got out of the car. Colin, bless him, missed all this as he wasn't home from work at the time but when the children told him about it, he decided I needed a cheering up treat. He found my wishlist here on my blog and treated me to this.
Now, I'll be honest, as cute as I find many dragon designs it is not something I would normally choose to stitch. But...look at that cute little face...and the chocolate and the title of the book...seriously how could I NOT love 'The History of Chocolate - a love story'. So this is what I may possibly have accidentally started the other day. Being the dimwit that I am, I confused 3371 with 3771 and ended up having 79 pale peach stitches instead of 79 dark brown. Not much difference there then! I won't bore you with photos of my dark brown blob especially as it's over 1 - it's even more boring than my normal blobs!
