Stitching Progress!

At last I have something to show you all. It's not a finished piece of work but it sure show progress. How Does Your Garden Grow! I've now stitched this up to part eight. Part nine has been released and I hope to stitch that shortly.

I'm still missing beads on this, partly because I don't have any yet and partly because I would leave them to the end anyway. Each part stitches up really quickly and I'm enjoying learning all the speciality stitches.

Back to the hospital tomorrow to get DD's plaster changed. She's been in school yesterday and today and managed OK although she can't actually right anything. They let her use the computer to do her work, although even that is slow going with just her left hand to type with.

Back to it!

Life has got so mad recently, what happened to all my stitchy time? I'm sorry to everybody that I've not been around much but I hope to get back with it now and get up-to-date on all your blogs.

We had a slight disaster on Sunday, in that eldest daughter (10) managed to fall off her scooter and break her right arm. We got to the A&E at 8.50pm and got home at 2.30am - yep that's right nearly 6 hours in casualty. She's got a temp cast on at the moment which will be replaced with one of those fancy light ones on Friday. It was all a bit traumatic and we're both really tired so I'm off to bed in a moment.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for your continued visits and watch this space for a proper stitchy update soon.

Ta Ta for now.

Here's a little frog I've stitched. The pattern is from Cyberstitchers and was a really quick stitch. It kind of sums things up for us recently.

However, things have improved. Hubby has been offered a job. Yippeee! He doesn't have a start date yet but it should be later this month. And I'm really enjoying my job so I think things are on an upward turn, at last. The job has meant I've not been updating my blog as often as I would like but I hope to improve on that. Thank you all for your words on encouragement, it is really appreciated and has helped over the last few weeks.

I've also been stitching away at Celtic Winter although progress has slowed down on that as I seem to be more tired in the evenings at the moment. Anyway, here's to happier times. Thank you all, again.
