I have another finish to add to my 10 project challenge! Yay! Yep last night I put the final few stitches into Blackbird Designs Rites of Spring and am delighted with how it looks. I just love this pieces as much as I loved Where My Heart Blooms. Looking at the fabric though I am thinking that I may have stitched it on the wrong side of it. Is there a right and wrong side to R&R fabric??? Oh well too late now! The photo is not very good I'm afraid as it was a bit dull when I took it.

Started 29th June 2008
Finished 7th September 2008
Su asked what I was going to do with this when I'd finished it. I think I may steal Mary Kathryn's idea of making it into a stitcher's wallet as I absolutely adore the one she made. I am going to email her to ask her if she minds first though and maybe see if she has any tips too as I've never made one before!
So once this was finished I started the next Loose Feathers which is Blessings and Kind Wishes. Again I think I may have started this on the wrong side but I'm not frogging it now! It wasn't until I was taking photos of them this morning that I realised I might have done! This one had another big house on it so that's more or less where I started ! Thought I'd get that bit over with first or maybe alternate between that and other bits:)
I totally missed out on the S&S/ Jayne's Attic SAL challenge for August but still hope to stitch it at some point. This month's is A Windy Willows freebie called Noel which was the one I voted for so hoping I have more luck in stitching it!
The next part of the Symphonie SAL is out so I've got it downloaded and will print it out in a bit. Veronica asked what fabric I'm using. It's Silkweaver Tuttie Fruitie which is gorgeous. I've had it a while as I bought off Karen last year and kept wondering what I'd stitch on it!
The girls seem to be settled OK at school now. Abi gave the letter in about the lessons she chose but the lady who read it totally got the wrong end of the stick. Anyway Abi can be given the ones she chose but with quite a bit of messing in her timetable and it'll also mean she'll end up with people she doesn't know so she's sticking with what she was given ( Art and Music when she chose Art and Dance). Jess now has all chemistry lessons on her timetable but it means two lunchtime lessons to fit them all in so that it suits both teachers and pupils. When she went rushing in on Friday she didn't need to! Her timetable was right and her friend's was wrong! Lol!
I think I am OK! I won't say for definite that I am as the tears are still flowing now and again. Yesterday morning when I woke up I just laid in bed sobbing and, if I'm honest, I had no idea why. This morning I got myself worked up and felt sick. I think I need putting in a big bag and shaking up!
I hope everyone here in the UK is safe following the heavy rain and floods over the weekend.
