Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all my blogging friends!  Hope you are all having a lovely long weekend...  The weather here has been glorious for the past few days - and hopefully it will last for a while longer!

I've been stitching on 'In the Arms of an Angel' since I finished 'Serenity Prayer' on Monday.  It has been nice to be able to focus on her for a good few days while I've been on holiday from work.  Here is my progress picture:

The robe on the baby is finished, as is most of the 1-over-1 stitching on the arm, hand, baby's head, and the face and neck of the angel.  It is tough going with the 1-over-1, but the effect is lovely.  I'm going to put her away until the next time she is drawn out now, before I get bored of stitching her!

I'm back at work on Tuesday, after 2 weeks at home, and I'm also starting my 1-term part time contract at the school in Burnley.  I will be working 2 part-time contracts for the term, which will help with our savings towards our holiday in New York in the summer...Rachel went back to Swansea on Good Friday, and Steven wants to go back to Stafford next Friday...  Sammy says it will take a while to get used to the quiet house again!

My first Zumba class was last week, and I loved it!  It was really energetic, but I didn't realise I was exercising as much, as I was too busy trying to learn the steps....I'm going again on Tuesday - especially when I lost 5lbs of weight last week!  I took a bottle of water with me to the class, and I drank it all...

Have a good week, and Happy Stitching :o)
