I have started on Black Willow Farm by Carriage House Samplings. It's being worked with one strand of Thread Gatherer Silk N' Colours on 40ct antique white linen. I thought the 40ct might be really difficult, but with appropriate lighting, I have been finding it quite enjoyable.
I have also started on my squares for the Fair and Square Exchange. Here are a sample of the colours, but you will have to wait until my exchange person receives it before I can post any more.
Finally I have my layout for the LHN Round Robin finalised. All the measurements have been completed, I just need to purchase the designs and start stitching. Here is a photo of the beautiful linen I have chosen. It's a 32ct Belfast linen, it's hard to describe the colour, but the vertical threads are a light creamy colour and the horizontal threads are more of a pale brown colour. If anyone knows what this colour actually is, please let me know.
Finally, there does not seem to be any improvement with Aurelia's sleeping habits, although I am able to get her in her bed for a short time most nights. Lately we have been resorting to warm baths, massage and reading lots of books, only time will tell if it works. In the meantime, DH has been banished to the guestroom. At least he is able to get a good nights rest as he starts very early in the morning.
