Progress Update

I really like how I'm managing to stitch during term time at the moment.  In my last job, once I was back at work, I didn't have the time or motivation to stitch, as I was so stressed.  This time, as I'm working one-to-one with different children, I'm not stressed out, and I don't have all the marking to do! 

I've been stitching on two pieces this week:

This is Heirloom Christmas Sampler by Thea Deuck at The Victoria Sampler.  It is very detailed and has some intricate stitches, so I find that I only do a couple of rows before it goes back in the box.  (I think it's because it doesn't grow fast enough for me :o))

This is my progress on In the Arms of an Angel.  I love the range of bright colours in this, and find myself swapping from one area to another, although the bottom is almost finished now.

Have a good week, and Happy Stitching!
