Small progress

Another week has gone by... and I don't feel I have a lot to show you this week.
We went to visit Halesowen College on Tuesday for Becki, they do the Dance BTEC National course that she is interested in. She really liked the college and the course and has applied for a place there next year. She has to have an audition but they tell you on the same day if you have got in! Then on Thursday we visited Stourbridge College which is going to be Laura's second choice if she doesn't get a place at King Edwards' Sixth Form College. So that was 2 days of no stitching!!
On Wednesday this week it is Stuart's birthday so I thought I would make him some cards. As he was at a league meeting on Saturday I spent the day working on those. Firstly I made a decoupage card for him off the girls.
Secondly I cross stitched a letter S for him off me. I am pleased with the way they have turned out considering I did them both in just one day!
I have also been trying to do some of my Family Tree, you can see the people emerging on this side now. Slowly but surely on this one!
Lastly I worked on My Needle's Work, she now has 2 arms and half a head!!
I am thinking it is getting very close to Christmas and I may have to abandon my rota to get all the things I want to get stitched for Christmas. I have made very few stitched cards this year but I do want to make some more ornaments for people in my family and I have 2 cushions to make up for the girls - the Ballerina one and Tigger one. This week I am working on the Lizzie Kate Christmas one so I'll try to get as much done as possible, I think I have less of a busy week than recently.
Until next week.

great cards as always. I think it's wise to take a break from your rota.
