DH is, as we speak, flying to New Zealand - by my calculations, he will be over Eastern Europe by now! Yesterday was really really hard for me - outside I was so excited for him going to the Southern Hemisphere, with all the wonderful experiences he will gain and I know he will have a lovely time. Inside I was feeling so melancholic as we have never been apart before for more than a couple of days. But despite my outward appearance, he knew what was going on ... let's face it, he knows me so well.
Work today has been a relief - keeping me really busy and no time to sit and mope!
My blog entries will probably be slightly less colourful as DH took the digital camera. I have added some Tatty Ted's to break up the text somewhat.
If, like me, you enjoy reading San's reviews of our top UK Cross Stitch magazines, take a look at her latest views for Cross Stitcher http://angelsan.free.fr/blog.php?p=774#comments - it looks like a good issue, judging by San's comments!
I have terminated my subscription for Q&E Cross Stitch as it has disappointed me for about 90% of the year (the renewal notice arrived at the weekend and it prompted me to make the decision!). Despite the excellent credentials of the guest designers, there are a number of charts that I feel fall well short of the quality I would expect to pay for. I did feedback some comments to the editor but I feel it may not have been taken seriously enough for changes to be made ....
I will be doing a review of Cross Stitch Collection on Saturday as it is due to reach the shops on Friday.
Sincere good wishes to you all for a dreamy Valentine's Day, and, including those to whom the day does not hold a particular significance (as I am aware that not everyone is in agreement with the commerciality of the Day -a sentiment I partially agree with), may your Tuesday be happy, peaceful and serene.
