Yes, the rugby season has started here in Britain. Townie husband is a great supporter of Bath Rugby club – he has a season ticket which requires him to attend the majority of their home matches (not sure about the “requires” bit, but he assures me this is so). And above is a little painting I made for him a few years ago now, because of course being a rugby supporter does mean that you must consume beer. (again I’m not entirely sure this really is the case, but who am I to question this?)
Meanwhile, remember your maths classes and consider the following equation ….
ENGLISH RUGBY SEASON STARTED + RUGBY WORLD CUP = LOTS OF TIME SPENT WATCHING MATCHES
Never mind, while he is absorbed in the rugby I will have chance to catch up with some stitching – October’s Bustle & Sew Magazine will have lots of Christmassy projects …. and at present I’m busy with a Santa-themed Advent calendar:
Above is the work in progress – I chose a Moda Charm Pack for the pockets – Glace by Three Sisters – I love the way they incorporate the idea of Christmas without being too over the top. Adore the colours too and have used them in the embroidery – it’s really simple to stitch, and I’m happy with the way this project’s progressing at present.
I’m planning a Nativity-themed Advent calendar too, but am still sketching it out so nothing to show at present. Still with all this rugby going on I’ll have lots of time to snuggle down with hoop and floss …
looks beautiful so far!
Oooh! I love advent calenders
Living here in NZ where the RWC is being held and where the All Blacks have a Godly like status I have learnt to stitch and watch, however every time there is a good 'tri' I do end up 'unsewing' a bit as my tentsion just goes haywire. As for the beer – I'll just stick to my coffee.
Enjoy the peace and quiet.
