I have been working more during school hours over the last few weeks, giving school children immunisations. I have had a less time for blogging as a result -sorry! I am sure the children liked seeing my face at their schools - NOT!
Also there has been no end of drama with our boys in our household recently with Tom (my 4yo) breaking a bone in his forearm (at the supermarket of all places) and 13yo Jack being sick with pneumonia. Luckily both boys are improving now.
I have had loads of fun stitching on both of my main projects. The Bothy Threads Cut Thru' castle is progressing well. I love the tower which I am stitching. A stair well is next up in the tower. I bought a washable pen to try marking the 10x10 squares to make it a little easier to stitch (especially so I don't muck up the counting). I have 3 1/2 pages left and counting (plus all the backstitching of course).
The Prairie Schooler Alphabet has been growing. I have almost finished stitching E is For Embroidery. What a pretty block that one is the a pretty cross stitched embroidery in a frame with a pretty lady, scissors, needle and cotton reels adorning the block. Just another 2 hours of stitching left then I am starting F is for Friendship.
