Blackwork Lady

Finally found time to blog again. I have had a busy week which included several early mornings. Becki had her Induction Days at college and I took her, then Stuart had to have his car mended and I took him to work. So by the evenings I have been too tired to do much!! Becki loved college and got on well with the other dance students so she'll be fine in September.

Stuart also got a new job last week. His school is about to close and we were beginning to worry he wasn't going to get anything sorted.... but he finally has. The school is in the next Education Authority and is about 12 miles away, but it's not too bad a drive. So all of my family will be starting something new in September...... very exciting.

I completed the Blackwork Lady stitching a few days ago. I didn't think I would finish this so quickly but I just loved it. I need to order the frame to go with it now.
I also finished another charity square, this one is for an "up in the air" theme. So I choose a colourful hot air balloon.
I have also been trying hard to get my Family Tree completed. I am now just working on the top border. The rest of the tree is done but that bit can't be seen now as I have rolled up the stitching just to work on the top. I am so pleased that I am close to finishing, it'll be such a great piece.
Happy stitching to all

Congratulations on finishing your blackwork lady, she is beautiful, i can't beleive how quickly you stitched this one up!

Glad your husband got fixed up with another job and that your daughter enjoyed her induction day, Stevie had 2 days at Shenstone House last week too meeting people she will be working with, i think she enjoyed it, Stevie is very, very laid back and takes everything in her stride, lol.
