Saturday Progress Update

Well, I've had a lovely week off work this week, and have managed to get quite a lot of stitching done.  I have only worked on 'In the Arms of an Angel', so have made good progress...

I have also booked our holiday for next year - a week in New York in August...I can't wait!  I've never been further than Amsterdam before, so going all the way to the US will be fabulous.  We are hoping to go and see a show and take a helicopter ride over the city whilst there...It will be our first holiday on our own, as the kids are staying at home that week.  We had to cancel our holiday this year, as the kids decided that they didn't want to go to Scotland and stay in a cottage, so it was cancelled.  As they will be 21, 20 and 17 by then, we decided it's about time we started going on holiday without them...

I'll hopefully update next weekend...

Happy Stitching!

Life and Stitching Progress

It's been a while since I updated my blog, so I thought I'd better get on here and do something!  I've been in my new teaching job for just over 7 weeks, and I'm loving it!  I am working with Year 2 (6-7 years) in the mornings, and Year 6 (10-11 years) in the afternoons.  I have a lot of paperwork with the morning job, but as it is one-to-one work, there is a lot of job satisfaction.

Rachel and Steven are back at Uni for their second year now, and I have spent the last three days reorganising the house - a 'spring' clean, so to speak.  Sammy has started studying in the Sixth Form for her A-Levels, and is looking at possible careers, ready for our tours around different Uni's next summer.

My stitching has taken a back seat recently - mostly due to work, but also because Sammy decided to 'sort out' all my stitching stuff, and therefore stashed all my work away - Out of sight, out of mind, as we say :o)

Anyway, I 'found' my Angel at the weekend (it's Half Term week this week, so I'm off work) and started working on her again:

I'll hopefully be able to continue working on her, now that she's back on the table...Time will tell...

Happy Stitching!
