Laying the Front Lawn and the Blood Moon Eclipse
Hello everyone... I haven't been posting for a while , this is due to our little dog being poorly , a bit of a worrying time . She's 16 years old ..maybe a bit more..but a good age for a Jack Russel....she hasn't been well over Christmas and New Year and last week had a couple of seizures ... she seems to have stabilised again now although maybe a little bit confused .
We're taking one day at a time and every day is a precious and happy day .
I have still been doing my few stitches every day though . It would be very boring for you if I put my progress on every day though wouldn't it ?
I will be showing you some other things I,m working on along the way .
The roof was a bit gruelling , since I felt that I had to do every single roof tile !
There are still a few tiles to do ! So much easier to stitch a thatch roof ...I will show you another embroidery that I did years ago of another cottage where we lived in Mullion .
An Grouse Cottage as it looked while my family lived there .
An Grouse - Cornish for - The Cross
It was Grade 2 listed and the windows also had a separate listing, anyway we had to replace some of them and had to have them specially made by a carpenter expert in making these historical windows ....it was months before the windows were finished and given there final coat of paint because of a pair of very beautiful but cheeky Magpies who kept coming and pecking out the putty in the frames !!
Anyway , as I was saying , thatch is much easier to embroider .
So now I,m laying the front lawn ....long and short stitch .
I was up very early this morning to see the Blood Moon Eclipse 4am ....it was a lovely clear sky and beautiful thing to have seen . I,m so glad I managed to get myself up and out to see it . Sadly my camera didn't pick up the red . While I was watching a huge meteorite fell below the moon , I wonder if anyone else saw or captured that on camera ?..No it happened too fast for my poor old camera , zooming in and out trying to focus !
