Athens and some stitching

Today we have had a very busy day in Rome. We visited St Peter's Basilica nice and early before the crowds and then went on a tour of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. So much to see and so amazing. We then went to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum too. Lots of walking resulting in very tired feet tonight. But the pictures here are Athens. We had a great day visiting the Acropolis and then the new Museum, which was very good. Here are just a couple of Bruce's photos.

As this is a stitching blog, I thought I should show you what I have been stitching. Plane trips are very good for stitching and I stitched a bit in England too. There wasn't much time on the cruise as there were books to read from the library on board. I managed to stitch block 10 of Crazy Christmas and have started block 11 too.

On the plane over, it was about 20 hours, I watched movies and stitched the last 2 stitcheries for the Gardener's Journal BOM. Nice to have those done.

I also stitched this month's block in the My Garden BOM. Haven't added the bird yet or the piecing.
I also stitched this little angel decoration as my sample says 2008!

Beautiful photos Sylvia and so good to see that you have managed to stitch in between also! I'm looking forward to one of those loooonnnngg flights when you can just sit and stitch and watch movies! Sounds like fun to me!
