Is that a guilty look or not?!
Kitchen magic is definitely what Ben thought he’d managed by making the bag of dog biscuits for the draw disappear! So when I came across this counted cross stitch pattern in a 1950s magazine lurking within my boxes, it seemed entirely appropriate!!
Sadly however it won’t be appearing in mine – I just can’t get on with cross stitch. I think I lack sufficient discipline! My stitches are always the wrong way round and no matter how carefully I count I never end up in the right place. So I’ve given up. But I don’t think that’s any reason to let this pattern remain in an old box, neglected and unloved when there are lots of very talented needlewomen out there who I’m sure would enjoy working it.

Off to write numbers on dog biscuits – the draw is now imminent. Oh, and yes, Ben did get his new ball after all. Couldn’t be cross with him for too long!
