You would think that with my enforced internet diet I would have made huge progress stitching wise, wouldn't you? And you'd be wrong....LOL. Well, I suppose I kind of did, with Caroline and the gifts I stitched. But here's my less-than-impressive progress on Pompeii.....
Pathetic isn't it, given all the stitching time I've had? I think I need a break to recharge my batteries, so this weekend I'm going to work on Stargazer and see if I can see off a good chunk of that. I've only got the frilly nonsense at the bottom of her dress, and the beads to go.
On the subject of Chatelaines, I'm so happy that Martina has finally released the chart for Evening In The Park! I love that design and have been quite impatient for it's release. As soon as our finances get back on an even keel (buying a house is such a money pit!!!) I'm going to get the chart, and then ask Pete for the kit for my birthday in June! I can't wait!
In other news.....my baby girl stated High School this week! I can't believe it! Louise herself was very nervous about it. I took her in the first day and parents etc were invited to stay for the intro meeting, so little Peter and I sat at the back of hall (Pete had to work). Louise of course didn't know anyone as we've only just moved into the area, so she was sitting by herself and she looked so young and alone, I wanted to snatch her up and take her home.....by the end of the day of course she'd made several new friends and was bubbling over with how great it all was!
