Hooray I'm back on...

Came home last night to find both the Internet and TV were working again.... hooray for Virgin Media!!

Had a super time last night at the Prom, the rain just about managed to stay away.... the pupils all scrubbed up really well and the girls were wearing some beautiful dresses and the boys in smart suits. Two girls arrived on horse back.... very brave. The meal was tasty and everyone seemed to have a great time. Didn't get home until 1am so feeling a little tired today just not used to living the high life nowadays.

Thought I'd show my "greatest achievement" to date on this posting. It is called Sweet Dreams by Lavender and Lace.

We were on holiday on Dorset and sound a lovely Cross Stitch shop where they had this picture completed and on show. I bought the chart and started it in 1993 as my friend, Sarah, had just announced she was pregnant. In those days I didn't stitch as much as I do now and this was the biggest project I had taken on. So in October of that year when I found I was pregnant also I decided to keep the stitching for myself........ (sorry Sarah!). But when my twins arrived in 1994 my stitching got put in a cupboard and didn't make a re appearance for quite a while..... I finally finished it about 5 years ago and it now hangs pride of place in my lounge.

Today I have worked on a few cards and now I'm going to work on The Family Tree and have a nice glass of red wine (being careful not to get the wine too near the stitching!) Tomorrow I am going to take another picture of this stitching to update on my blog.

Glad everything is back up and running. Your Sweet Dreams piece is beautiful. The L&L pieces are so gorgeous, but with the detail and size I haven't been brave enough to do one yet. I have a couple WIP's smaller than they are that have been around forever and can see one that size ending up the same way. Glad the prom went so well and teh weather cooperated. Looking forward to seeing an update picture of your current project.
