Wilbur Progress

I've enjoyed stitching on my tapestry this week!  Wilbur himself is finished, so I just have to do the rest of the background and the edging:

Back to cross stitching next week...

I've also had 'A New Day' framed.  I picked it up from the framers this morning:


We've been having a bit of chaos with my youngest daughter this week.  She has decided that she hates the Sixth Form that she attends at the moment, and wants to leave and start somewhere else in September.  She went for a meeting with the Sixth Form Leader with her dad yesterday, and is now more adamant that she is leaving.  She has applied to two colleges in the area, and has an interview at one of them in 2 weeks' time.  I have told her to think seriously about it over this weekend, and if she still wants to leave, then fine.  My eldest, Rachel, changed colleges at the end of her first year, and had to restart A-levels, so we've done all this before.  However, Sammy wants to leave now, and doesn't see the point in seeing the year out....Anyone who thinks bringing children up gets easier as they get older, beware!  More stress!!!

Wilbur is adorable. Now, when feeling overwhelmed by all that stress, go back and read your beautiful New Day!

Wilbur is so cute and I love your framed A New Day!

Oh I hear you about children as they get older. My eldest DD has decided she wants to change courses after 18 months of a 4 year chemistry course at university. It's a huge change to creative writing! She's decided she can't stand to do chemistry anymore!

Wilbur looks so cute and the frame for A New Day complements the design perfectly!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter having a tough time with her Form 6. I hated it too when I was doing it... I stopped after 5 months and eventually came to Uni in the US. Good luck with Sammy and her decision.
