More cross stitch

Update on my most recent piece. It’s taking ages. But I’ve learnt from last time and not left all the back stitch until the end.

Closest I got to nature today was out of the window as I drove through the countryside.

Not sure a walk in the dark counts either!

Today I caught the train to the Arena station and walked home along the canal. Two firsts – I got to see bits of the city from the train that I’ve not been on in daylight before, and I’ve not walked that part of the canal south before either.

I really hope that as part of the City of Culture the Art Trail along the canal is refreshed and updated, while the large amounts of rubbish are also dealt with. There are some bins, but these are overflowing, and people clearly don’t take rubbish home with them.

A day out at Croome Court today. Saw lots of swans, enjoyed walking through a ‘Capability’ Brown landscape, marvelling at the vision of a man who would never see his gardens in their maturity.

Today I took a walk along the River Sowe.

Even saw a heron!

National memorial arboretum today. A lovely two hours walking around, watching the trees and the river.

Even got a toot from a train!
