Busy Weekend...

A late update due to being on Camp with my Guides last weekend.  It was the Division Centenary Camp at Bowley Scout Camp in Great Harwood, and it went well.  We arrived on Friday to grey clouds and a bit of rain, but we managed to get the tents up before it rained too hard.  The only heavy rain we had was during Saturday night/early Sunday morning, which was great!  I was the designated First Aider for the Guides, and was completing my qualification at the same time.  I had to make sure I was prepared for any eventuality, so had plenty first aid supplies!  By the end of camp on Sunday, I had only had to deal with a cut finger (whilst cutting chicken for fajitas on Friday night) and a wasp sting on Saturday evening, but passed my Health and First Aid qualification :o)  The weekend was hard work, but fun...

As for stitching, I have stitched quite a lot on my Mermaid, but will wait until Saturday before I post a picture.  I also stitched another of Margaret Sherry's Astrocats:

And here is the whole design so far, with 3 cats left to stitch:

As you can see, the RR is from 2007!  When I've finished it, I'm going to stitch the names of the 5 ladies who stitched cats on it next to the respective cat.

Here is the card that I stitched for a friend's birthday:

It is a Lizzie*Kate design, and I stitched it a while ago, but couldn't post the picture until I'd given it to my friend...

I'm going to work on Friday for a visit on the last day.  It will be sad, but I'll be able to look forward to my new job once I've done it...My new job will hopefully be less stressful, but still rewarding, and it is much closer to home!

Good Luck on Friday, hope all goes well and you have a nice visit event though its to bid friends farewell.

Astrocats is certainly looking fantastic. I hope you had fun at the guide camp, I used to always enjoy Brownie camp outs!
Happy Stitching.
