Thanks to my bruv for taking the photo for me! :o) Unfortunately it's a little dark, but it shows the peach colours on the blanket well. I swapped the aqua stars for opal ones and made bead ropes out of 4 different colours of bead. I'm really pleased with the finished result. I've also had several cuddles with the recipient over the last couple of weeks whilst they've been down on the south coast. Baby Catriona is gorgeous - she slept face down on my chest with her hands under her head and her bottom in the air for hours and hours! Awwwww..... :o) I'm hoping to get Crescent Dreams framed within the next few weeks, so I'll share another photo once it's done. Since then I've been stitching my Snow Princess. I'm probably a couple of weeks away from finishing page 5. I have a couple of weeks off work at the end of June/beginning of July as it's Wimbledon once more, although as money is tight I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to visit this year. But it means I should get a fair bit of stitching time in - my goal is to finish the top row of pages on Snow Princess by the end of Wimbledon!
I went up to London last night with my SIL and nephew to the Royal Albert Hall. We went to a concert by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, titled "FilmHarmonic" which may give you an idea what it was all about! They were playing well known film scores with a section devoted to John Williams who celebrates his 75th birthday this year. So we had themes from Mission Impossible, Pirates of the Caribbean (yay!), Gladiator, ET, Star Wars, Chariots of Fire, Superman, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Great Escape, Jurassic Park and a few we weren't familiar with. It was fabulous - the orchestra was about 100 strong with such a variety of instruments! We agreed that it would be great to be on the percussion instruments at the back - they looked as if they were having a great time!!! I especially love the music from Pirates & Gladiator which sounded fantastic. I think I'll have to dig out my soundtrack CDs tomorrow whilst I'm stitching. ;o)
