Recent stuff !

Not very original title today....... too tired to think ! I would have posted on Friday at work as I do recently....... but I seem to have managed to break the internet at work and the lads were too busy to look at it!! I hope it gets sorted tomorrow, I do need it quite a bit for actual work not just leisure !
Last week I finished the second Art Deco lady, so now I have 2 done but would like to do at least one more before I look into getting some matching frames etc.

Also a little late but my Lizzie Kate "May" flip it is finally finished. I haven't made it up into an ornament yet as my mom has borrowed the sewing machine, so this may not get hung up during May.... never mind. I will still start June soon..... although I think I will be running late on that one too at this rate!

The last few days I have worked on the Christmas Window stitching again. There is a lot still to do but it is certainly taking shape. The dog now has legs and the man has trousers !! I am glad I am enjoying this piece now as I wondered at first if it would turn into a UFO !!

I will try to work on my Family Tree again next week, my rota has fallen apart over the past few weeks but I am back on track now! I have also been stitching on the Forever Friends Christmas kit my Aunt left but I forgot to take a photo!

The girls GCSE time table starts next week, Laura has 3 exams and Becki has 2. Becki also took 2 dance exams today..... poor things, no wonder they are stressed out ! The reality that they are leaving school has struck home and even though they have had a tough term or two they suddenly don't want to leave !

Anyway, I am off for a soak in the bath..... hope you all have a good week.

Ginnie xx

Best Wishes to the girls as they head into this stressful time, i remember both mine doing their GCSE's. Its painful for the parents too, you need a thick skin during this time to fend off their short fuses!!!
