I have been doing a bit of frogging this week! I sat down eagerly anticipating a good evening's stitching with Barb ( oh how I wish) on Monday evening on Faith. Everything was going swimmingly until I suddenly realised my sheep was in the wrong place. Why? How could this have happened. Simple. I had too much grass which meant if I left it my border would not go right. So lots of unpicking happened. Poor sheepie had to run away to pastures new until the grass grows again. Poor sheepie hasn't returned yet :(. I had high hopes of getting this finished tomorrow evening. Not a hope in hell now! Lol! Sorry Barb I will give it my best shot!
Last Sunday I was very naughty. I fancied a new start so I had one. This is Cottage Garden Samplings January's Snowflake from the My Garden Journal series. I'm stitching each one on 40 count Pearl Grey Newcastle linen. Yep 40 count. I think I've taken leave of my senses.
Tuesday at craft group I continued with my ornament for September. I'm loving the colours in this one.
A little bit of progress this week on my robin. Hopefully I'll be able to go back to two evenings a week on this soon.
Finally some of the border on Curly Q Ewe which is my SAL with Lainey and Mouse.
Last Thursday was the year 13 celebrations evening which Abi did not want to go to but I received a phone call from one the deputy heads who organises the evening asking if we would go as Abi was going to receive two awards. I persuaded her to go and off we went for a very proud parents moment. She received awards for Art and Photography and here are some photos.

Finally more photos using my new camera. I will admit that my DH set the shutter speed and aperture for the moon shot for me. I asked him to help me as it's all double Dutch to me at the moment!
Playing with scene modes. One taken in through glass mode and one in sunset mode.
Thank you all for continuing to visit me and for leaving such lovely comments. They mean so much.
With much love.
