A long time - no see

Hello!  I’m still here.  I hope everyone is well and still stitching. I’ve pretty much been working on Mad Queen Alice constantly since I last posted.  I’m now on page 9 of 42.  Slow and steady.  It’s good to take her off the frame and see the whole picture.  I spend so much time just looking at the small detail I forget the overall image.

We’ve been doing the university tours looking at English Literature courses for my youngest daughter.  And she doesn’t seem to want to look close to home - it took us 4 hours to get to one of them!  Lovely as that University was I quite selfishly hope she doesn’t go there as we just won’t see her much.  Eldest daughter is only one and a quarter hours away so nice and easy for her to get back!

We also spent a couple of days away staying in a treehouse in Devon.  The most amazing and relaxing place.  Came home feeling totally refreshed and had a day of sea air as well.

Anyway, it’s back to the normal grind now but hopefully I’ll see a page finish soon!

Happy stitching!

Your Queen is looking gorgeous! She is really going to be quite something when she is finished. Hope you daughter chooses a university that is close to home. My boys are only 4 and 8 and I am already dreading the day they want to move away.
