A finish (except for the backing and binding) - my Malta cloth is done and I am quite satisfied with it. It is called "Going Up, Coming Down?" after the building work here. It is almost impossible to tell whether something is being constructed or demolished and Al and I try to guess. Our general belief is that if there is a crane on site then the building is going up.
Today has been a lovely relaxing day. We had a stroll this morning and then I stitched while Al sudokued (is that a verb?) and read the newspaper. Here's a picture from yesterday's trip into Valletta, there was no way I was going down this street, look at the up to follow! Many of the smaller streets are steps, Lord Byron referred to them without any love in his poem Farewell to Malta
Adieu, ye cursed streets of stairs!
(How surely he who mounts you swears!)
