Finally back to blogging! Thanks for all your lovely comments about the girls at their Prom. It already seems ages ago!
We had a great holiday even though we were only away 5 days. The weather pretty good and we just love it at Charmouth. I managed to get plenty of stitching done, here are just a couple of pieces.
Firstly I finished the July Flip-It (Lizzie Kate) I never managed June so I was glad to get July sorted. Both August and September are done so I may do June next so it is sorted for next year!
On holiday I bought a bag of scraps of material for £1 which will be great for these ornies!
I also took my new start with me - "Blackwork Lady" which is in the latest World of Cross Stitching magazine. I have loved working on this as you can see! The chart does state that original blackwork backstitch goes through very hole on evenweave but I have done it my own way over 2 as I found it easier going. Trouble is now I need to go and get some more black DMC !! I can see this being finished quite quickly!
I also worked on my Christmas window and another charity square but haven't taken a photo of these. This week I wanted to work on my Family Tree again, but so far I haven't touched it. Maybe tonight!!!
Now here's a few holiday snaps -
Me and the girls on Charmouth beach one evening
Becki doing an epic jump in the sea at Charmouth beach - super sunny day!
Laura's not so epic jump the same day!
The gardens at Lyme Regis - looks like a tropical island with those trees. Very hot day!
Now it is back to normal, back to work just not back to school for the girls! Laura had her induction day at college on Friday and although she was very nervous I think she enjoyed it. Becki has hers next week. This Friday is the casting day for Becki's English Youth Ballet so she will see what part she gets to play! Very exciting.
Anyway untl next time....
