Mermaid progess

I finally got on my PC to post my updates..... for some reason it is on a mega "go slow" and I think it is on it's way out! Luckily I borrowed my work laptop for the weekend.... but my photos were on the PC!
Becki's interview went well at college, and she thinks she got a place there, but they hadn't received her grades from school, so we have to wait for confirmation in the post. Which is a bit frustrating as most of her friends going there were told straight away. Laura got a letter on Thursday to invite her to an interview on Monday (short notice) so we are all nervous again now for tomorrow.
I am pleased with my progress on Enchanted Mermaid, I can see her being finished soon. Lots of back stitch still to do though!
I also finished my letter B of the Fairy Tale alphabet for the Stitch for Charity group.
Then over the weekend I have done another square for the group for a special quilt for twins. This is the boy one and next I'll do a girl one! I couldn't say no to helping a set of twins!

This week Henry will be out again, and I must try to get some more of the February Flip it done.

Until next time,

Ginnie x

as always such beautiful work, I picked up the December (?) issue #221 of the CrossStitcher on the weekend with the two glamourous ladies on the front. I want to make the Emily Peacock "HUG" cushion, we got the free pattern with the magazine. The magazine cost me $12, which is the equivalent of six pounds, quite pricy.

Don't worry too much about colleges. Lots of kids go to 2-3 colleges, accept places at all of them and spend the summer decided which one they actually want to go to only to turn up in September, so even in the unlikely event she does not get a place: this will not be set in concrete lol
(as an ex-college teacher you have my word on this...at the end of the day they need bums on seats).
Good luck though...it should not be so stressful should it!
Lovely stitching as always!
