The big work in progress has been finding and purchasing a town house in St. Lucia which is close to the city and the University. My expectations regarding price were not realistic and after weeks of viewing town houses and apartments I came to the conclusion that I would have to spend more money. Even then I kept getting beaten by other contenders to the property that I would have liked to have purchase. But now, with a bit more money on the table, I have finally bought a town house, which my daughter will live in whilst she is completing her Phd. and I will be able to use when I need to stay in town. Now perhaps I can get back to siitching.
To keep my mind relaxed I have been working on Kogin designs for my Xmas cards. This design is stitched on a Lugano 28 count fabric. The Xmas tree is DMC white stranded cotton and the rest of the design is stitched in 2 strands of silk thread.
I have taken quite a few liberties with this design but I think it works.
