Harley Quinn is finished

Stitched this one for my daughter to go in her Cat Flat which is filled with Batman/Joker stuff. On 28ct linen band with assorted threads.

A new day and a new hair colour...

This time it's Manic Panic Electric Amethyst on the roots with Manic Panic Turquoise and Adore Emerald on the lengths.

Not too shabby even if I do say so myself

A day trip to Oxford

I took a day trip to Oxford, getting there was a bit of a mare, with a bus, train, train, replacement coach service... but it was a beautiful if windy day.

In the park they were playing Quidditch complete with sticks between their legs.

After a while the wind picked up and so I headed to the Pitt River Museum - this is a quirky little spot at the back of the Oxford Natural History Museum full of many many things that a Victorian philanthropist collected on his many travels. They aren't displayed by region as in many museums but by type.

I have this thing for shoes

particularly high heeled shoes...

I have a collection but that doesn't stop me wanting to buy more.

These were the latest acquisitions from a charity shop

A little piece of stitching finished...

This wasn't something I would choose to stitch and I didn't enjoy it, but it was a piece started by Alan's mum many years ago so I finished it for her.

I have no idea what I'll do with it.

There are still a few small pieces I've found of hers that she never finished.

Sadly she passed away just yesterday after a short illness.

Throwback Thursday

Here's a picture of baby me at about 4 years old... quite the throw back. I was cute then...

A little work needs doing...

This is my parent's house. I visited to try to help out. Sometimes I'm really not sure where to begin.

A different day, different hair...

This combination turned out so well and faded to the most beautiful soft pastels, though I did add on more purple to the roots a few days later.

Here's me rocking the faded version a week later.

A little nostalgia

Pictures taken in 2004 when I bravely but somewhat foolishly took my two children on holiday to Majorca. As you can see a good time was had by all, plenty of fun and sunshine. At the end of the week I was exhausted and in need of a holiday alone!
