Strange title I know! Lol! You will see later where the cake comes in!
I have been feeling much more human this week so I've done more stitching than I did last week. I know some of you may wonder how I still managed to stitch last week when I have felt so ill but it helps me relax and forget to a certain extent how bad I felt.
So here's my progress on Blackbird Designs Rites of Spring ( Loose Feathers). I'm not too happy with the T in Rites as it looks more like an F. I've already altered it once but I think I may need to change it again. I do, however, love the design and the colours of this. It is so easy to stitch.
As usual Mondays are A Quaker Christmas night so more stitching on my favourite piece of the moment! There are quite a few errors on the chart and, to my surprise, I am managing to pick them out as I go along and I have decided to correct them best I can. I am also going to make my own changes with some of the wording:)
Last night I did quite a lot on HAED TT Letter J so I was very happy. Next week I may just get page 1 finished:) I absolutely love stitching this and love how it is stitching up.
I am very excited as Lisa and I are planning on doing a SAL of this after the Summer holidays. I am really looking forward to doing this as I've been downloading all the parts since it started in the hope of stitching it one day. I don't know exactly when we will start but at least it gives us 6 weeks to decide on fabric and threads:)
The girls finished school for the summer yesterday so they'll be doing lots of relaxing and stuff! Jess is going to have to get a summer job as she wants to learn to drive when she's 17 ( in a few weeks) but as we live in a small town I'm not sure she'll find one easily. She did look a few weeks ago and asked in one shop and was told no because she wasn't 18.
Jess was quite upset a while ago to discover that one of her chemistry teachers would be leaving. She adores this teacher and she is also very popular with most of the class so her and a few of her classmates decided that they'd throw a little party for her on the last lesson! I don't know how they managed to keep it from her but with the help of other teachers and the technicians it was kept a secret. Jess made her a cake and here it is! Just incase you're wondering the icing under the writing is "Just a splodge" which was something the teacher used to say! I think it must be a scientific term! Lol! Anyway the party went well so they were all pleased:)
Hope everyone is having a good week. Looks like we might just get some good weather for a few days! Take care everyone!
