No Photo Hunt this week

… Because the week’s theme is “Garbage”, and to be honest I don’t feel like taking photos of rubbish bins or its contents, and I can’t think of anything clever that’s not actual rubbish … so for me this week’s theme is garbage and I’m not playing …

Instead this weekend I took Thursday and Friday off, and caught up with a friend from Melbourne on Thursday night before she flew out to Tokyo – then on Friday I managed to pick up yet ANOTHER blasted viral infection and over the last 2-3 days have had a blocked nose, raging sore throat, and today have added sore ears into the mix … never ever in all my life have I had such a rotten run with viral infections – I’m starting to think the boy in the bubble had a brilliant idea!!!  At least I have plenty of cold & flu tablets left over after the last bout, so I’m well set up! 

Due to feeling not too crash hot over the last few days, while my stitching has been relatively non-stop during the day, my pace has been very very slow – I have, however, managed to meet my UFO challenge for this month by completing the final of the 4 larger pieces of Chatelaine’s Stitching Leporello.  I have to say this is definitely my least favourite piece of all of them – I really don’t like much at all about this section.  The colours, in my eyes, are quite washed out, and an odd blend, and I really detest the acorns and leaves – they seem almost ‘clumsy’ in the middle there.  Unfortunately I wasn’t clever enough to try to replace them, and by that stage pretty much “over” stitching it, so I just wanted to get the darned thing finished and off the Qsnaps to be replaced by something else.  Only two more ‘medium’ sized pieces to go and it’s all finished.  I’m a bit tempted to just keep stitching until it’s finished, but after the totally unenjoyable stitching session I’ve just finished, I feel like something simple to cheer me up in the meantime.

I’ll leave you with photos, before I head back into the warm cozy confines of my bed once again …

  1. Oh no, not another one! Where are all these viral infections coming from? Get well soon – I truly hope this is the last one.

  2. I hope you’re feeling better!

    I like the colors, but I tend to like color choices that are muted. (Or else I go for things that clash. Basically, I’m hopeless when it comes to colors!) Your stitching is gorgeous. I just love your closeup shots!!!

  3. Oh Anne, you really are having a rough time of it, health-wise! I hope you’re feeling better soon. I like your Leporello myself and I’m sure it’s going to look wonderful when it’s all finished up 🙂

  4. The last concert I went to was U2; their opening act was the band “Garbage” 🙂

    I’m sorry you’re sick again. I hope you get well soon. {{{hugs}}}

  5. I hope you’ll be better soon. Your new Leporello panel is gorgeous no matter what you think of it 🙂 I agree somewhat, and it’s also my least favourite of the 4 large pieces, but I do like the border very much.
