Very proud.

My daughters got their GCSE English result on Thursday as they had taken it a year earlier than normal as they are very good at English. I am very proud to say they both got an A grade. They were so nervous just to get this result, I dread to think what they'll be like next year when they take all their other GCSEs. Now they start AS level English Litrature, I have just had to buy them 3 course books !!
Here is a photo my dad took today of them holding the notification of their passes.

I must thank everyone for their kind comments about my beach bag, I forgot to say on my last post that the idea came from "Ottobre designs" it was the shoulder bag I based my bag on.

I have now finished Lizzie Kate's September.... just in time. Here it is just after completing the stitching.

Then here it is made into an ornament. This time I used my machine to sew it together and then I added some brown cord to finish it. I like the way I have completed this one and will do the rest in the same way.

I will try to start October soon but have first promised my friend's other daughter, Olivia a cross stitched cushion like the Groovy Chick one I made last month for Alex. She wanted a rabbit on hers so I have picked the RSPCA Rosie Rabbit design to stitch. I plan to start that over the next couple of weeks.

I have been working on my Family Tree again today but had to spend some time unpicking !!! Urrr! Next week Henry will be out again. Tomorrow we have another family party, it was my cousin Sally's birthday yesterday so she has invited us over tomorrow for a get together. I haven't seen her or her family for a while so it'll be really nice as we were very close as children. It gets hard to keep seeing everyone so often as their own families grow bigger!

Anyway until next time, happy stitching and hope you all have a good long weekend if you are in the UK!

Well done to your girls. I was the first year to take GCSE's, but I still took my O level English and have top marks in that and GCSE's - it was my best subject (both English Language and English Literature).
