I made a good bit of progress on Blackbird Designs Blessings and Kind wishes on Sunday evening. I finished off all the greenery around the storks then started the green border at the top. Mmm I was a bit greened out by the time I'd done I must admit! Lol!
Mondays and Tuesdays are Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas evenings and I am so pleased with how I'm getting on with this. Having two evenings a week on it now means I am sure I can have it finished and on the wall in time for Christmas. I am near enough to having just one page left to stitch now.
I almost forgot part 6 of the Symphony SAL! I stitched this part up in one evening and now have part 7 downloaded and printed ready to make a start on later in the week. Unfortunately with it being dull now I haven't been able to get a true picture of the lovely colours in this.
I had a small new start last week but can't show it as it's for a little giftie for someone. Once I've finished it, made it up and it's arrived at it's destination I will share it then.
Now for the good news! Our new neighbours, after just about 6 weeks, did a moonlight flit on Monday night/ Tuesday morning! I cannot tell you how relieved we are and yesterday morning when I got up was the first time in weeks that I haven't felt like crying. We'd heard some noise in the garden around 7.30pm but thought nothing of it other than me hoping they were taking stuff to bits and leaving! Lol! Later on Abi was in her bedroom doing homework and came rushing downstairs to tell us that they were loading stuff up into a van! This went on until about 4am and they were even vaccuuming at 12am and 2am! Still the sleepless night was worth it this time with them gone! The landlord of the house came round last night and said I've got good news!! Lol! Of course we already knew they'd gone and were thinking about ringing him but he hadn't known until he'd gone to collect his rent. He said he didn't know whether to cry or be happy as she owed him some rent but he did admit it was a relief. When they'd had the party and other stuff he'd had people ringing him late at night complaining and he had warned her about it. Anyway please keep your finger's crossed that we get better neighbours this time as he's got several people in line for it. He said he'd guarantee the next ones would be better so I hope so! I've been talking to him again today as he's there cleaning up etc ( they left the garden a complete tip) so I took him a cuppa earlier.
Well that's it from me for today. Thank you to you all for your lovely comments on my stitcher's wallet. I have been using it as I have my threads and thread holder in it for A Quaker Christmas:)
