Henry from last week

I nearly forgot to post my update on Henry and his wives from last week !
I really enjoyed stitching on it again, his sixth wife has many colours in the bodice of her gown which were fun to work on. I also worked on the border again, the red rose is one of about six so I tried to get as much of this first one done as possible.
This week I have started a new piece of stitching, it is a mermaid/fantasy type piece that was in the last issue of World of Cross Stitching. The colours just grabbed me as they are lovely shades of greens and blue, I want to put it in my bathroom. I have enjoyed working on this so much I haven't touched much else. I did start another charity square but gave done very little.
Wednesday night was Presentation Night at school, the one that Laura got an award at but not Becky! Laura was presented with "Achievement in History" one of her favourite subjects and favourite teacher. Becky was ok about it and her head of year did come and chat to her to tell her how consistantly good she was.
Stuart is out tonight as it is end of term, so just me and the girls...... I have done lots of stitching and the girls are watching the TV in peace! Summer holidays are now ahead for the 3 of them, although Stuart is back at school next week for Summer School. Then the week after Becky is doing a Dance Summer School, then the week after Laura is at Brownie camp, then when she returns we all go on holiday..... so lots to keep them busy!!
Anyway hope you all have a good weekend.
