An Update, and Yet Another Finish...But Not Mine!!!

A busy week...I went into work on Friday and was given a large bouquet of flowers and a gift card for M&S.  I'm going back in tomorrow to collect all my belongings (now school is finished until September), and that will be the end of working at that particular school.

I've stitched quite a lot on my Mermaid:

I'm hoping to have her finished before I start my new job in I'd better get a move on!

My youngest daughter, Sammy, has finished her first large(ish) design - a Hummel - and she is very proud of it:

I told her that I'd get it professionally framed when she finished it, so she has been working like a beaver at it - apparently she was up until about 3am last night, finishing the backstitching off!

Have a good week, and Happy Stitching!
