Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

LOL! I stitched on Ink Circles Sea Stars again this week and am happy to report that I'm intent on stitching on this on Tuesdays until it's finished! Yep Tuesdays now not Wednesdays as I'm joining in the Small HAED SAL on Wednesdays with my Tiny Treasure Letter J. Anyway here's my progress for this week. Sammy Jo asked how much more I have to do. Well there's a HUGE motif in the middle and a smaller one plus the rest of the sea monster. I'd like to have it finished by the end of September.
I don't have anything else to show as I'm been beavering away on my piece for the Stitch and Stash redwork exchange. It's almost done, in fact it would be if the frog stayed away! I have an idea for something else to go with this piece but it's a secret until my partner has received it!


Jess applied for a job in the local Co-op this week to work on the shop floor so we are waiting to see if she gets an interview. In the meantime she has an interview next week for a leisure assistant at Neptune's Kingdom. It would suit her as it's mainly Sundays which would mean she'd be able to carry on with it when she goes back to 6th form in September.



Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! We're going uniform shopping for Abi on Sunday. Oh joy!



Hugs
