A Quiet Night In

So it’s Bonfire/Guy Fawkes’ Night, when we in Britain celebrate the foiling of a terror attack on Parliament and King James I/VI.

For those who think terrorists are only Islamic, Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators were Catholics. Fawkes wasn’t even the leader of the group, but there! He’s the one we remember because he was the one caught guarding the gunpowder.

But all that’s by the by. Fireworks have been going off for the last week or so, and I expect them to continue doing so for the next week or so, so I’m having a Quiet Night In with my sewing. And Numb3rs.

  1. This is great – how unusual to cross stitch the outline first. Is this something you do with all your cross stitches? If so, why?

    I’ve done the same with my sewing tonight… that & make sure my cat doesn’t jump out of her fur! 🙂

    • Hej – I don’t always do the outlines first, just with large sections like that. It’s so I don’t have to be continuously peering at the pattern and counting as I stitch – I do the outline and then “colour it in”. Just makes it easier for me. I just haven’t gone back to fill in Winnie yet.
      Your poor cat! I hope she hasn’t been too scared! 🙂
