Before we went away I was able to make up the Wedding Quadrielle from The Sweetheart Tree.
I also finished the Black Snowman from Shepherd's Bush.
I made more progress on Charmed Hearts also by Shepherd's Bush.
As I said before our Honeymoon involved a lot of train travel. We went from London to Venice on the Orient Express staying at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel the night before we caught the train. The former Midland Hotel had be derelict for many years and after a massive refurbishment re opened last year. This is a link to pictures on Google images
Here are some of our pictures. Firstly, the main reception.

The Orient Express waiting at Calais
Two of the dining cars
The bar car and yes, that is a baby grand piano!
This was our hotel in Venice, on the Grand Canal.
We spent three nights in Venice before starting to make our way home, by train, stopping for a night in Milan and three nights in Paris. This is the fountain in the square where our Paris hotel was.
The train journey from Milan to Paris was quite long so I was able to do some stitching. This is called 'Hand wash only' and comes as a kit from The Whimsical World of Thomas Joseph. There are four in the series.
It's back to work tomorrow I get the feeling that this year I'm going to be bringing even more work home than usual but I am determined to do some stitching every day so it's White Nights until it's finished!
