"And all that Jazz......"

Chicago was brilliant, Jimmy was lovely I cheered loudly when he came on stage (much to my daughter's embarrassment!) and the 2 girls who played Velma and Roxie were fantastic (one of them was from Eastenders!) I was surprised though that the theatre wasn't that full.... suppose that's the recession for you. Had an eventful moment on the car park.... my ticket got stuck in the machine and the barrier got stuck... we held up lots of cars and had to get an attendant !!!
I don't have a lot of stitching to show...... I have worked on Henry but will update you on that later in the week.
Here is my progress on August, just a bit more to do on the 2nd flower and around the word. I am enjoying working on these and will continue in the correct month order with September next.

Here is my small progress on Friends are like Angels..... or "nds like gels" as it reads at the moment !!! Most of this is over 2 squares but some is over 1 ..... so tricky on the eyes.

Becky has asked me to stitch a "Good Luck" card for her dancing friend Chrissie who has gained a place at "The Hammond Dance School" in Chester in September. I also need to do the poppy card for Becky's favourite teacher who leaves at the end of as ever I'm going to be busy!

Thursday is a special day.... it'll be my first blogoversary..... so tune in then, I will be having a giveaway !!!!

Until then, happy stitching.

Wedding Row turned out lovely, great frame choice, and your MS puppy finish is so cute. August is looking wonderful also, love the coloring. Yup, one more WIP won't matter, and the LK one is a fun choice. Can't wait to see your update of Henry, that is such an awesome piece, I can't imagine doing one that detailed. Good luck getting the cards finished, and glad you had such a good time at the theater, I'll bet Jimmy was great in that role.

I have alway had nightmares about situations like you had with the ticket machine. But it sounds like you and your daughters took it in stride (more laughs for life!). I love your August and your Friends/Angels...great progress on those. Looking forward to celebrating your blog-oversary with you.

Sound like you had heaps of fun Jayne. I love your August square matey

Sally said...

Both your WIPs look fab Jayne.

Glad you had a great time seeing Chicago.

You asked which uni Jess is hoping to go to. She's accepted an offer at Hull so not too far away from us. She's visited twice and has also been a couple of times with school and loves it there. For all it's only about 30 minutes away it would mean her catching two buses there and two back so she's decided to live at the halls of residence. Her second choice is Nottingham.
