Spring Fairy Update

Good Afternoon to you all. I hope you are all keeping well and crafting away.

This week for me has been awful, the kids decided to bring home the gift of a stomach bug that went round 3 of us within the space of 3 days, thankfully my oldest daughter and husband didn't catch it, but oh boy...I'm hoping it has gone for good now.

I have been stitching away on my Joan Elliott Spring Fairy for the last few days, and I'm almost done with the third page.  Here is how she is looking at the moment before I do more a bit later on.

As the chart is spread over 4 pages, I've been completing the back stitch as I finish a page. All beading will be left until the end so that way I can't break the beads lol.

Hopefully tonight will see the completion of her skirt and I can start the backstitch and move on to the next page.

Until next time

Big Changes and some updates

Good Evening to you all.

It has been a wonderful, sunny and warm day today in the South of Wales, makes a nice change to the cold.

As my title suggests, there are going to be some big changes coming to my household starting from September.

As I am nearing my 30th birthday, I thought it about time I got my life sorted and going in the direction I wanted it to instead of going day by day, so.....I applied to University and took up driving lessons.

I found out yesterday that my application to attend a 'brick uni' was accepted and I start full time in September WOOP WOOP!! I will be studying Finance and Accounting while the hubby takes care of the kids and studies for his masters.

I'm also currently taking driving lessons, but so far I am only a few weeks into that and so the nerves are still quite high.

In between all this madness, I have managed to do some stitching and I'm getting ever closer to having my long term WIP finished. Here are the update pictures:

Page 9 progress on Moon Goddess HAED.

Progress on Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas.

So far I now have days 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 9 completed. I have made a start on day 12 but there isn't a great deal of progress to show.

I hope you all have a wonderful evening and manage lots of craftiness.

Until next time
