A Happy Dance and some framing

I've not had much stitching time recently, due to working 2 teaching jobs, but I finished 'Astrocats' today:

Capricorn Cat was the last one stitched on the piece...

I have also had two pieces framed recently:

'Chorus Line' by Valerie Pfieffer

'Faith' by My Big Toe Designs

It's half term at the moment, so I have a week off work.  However, Rachel is here with her boyfriend Nick for the week, and Steven is home until he gets a placement...I'm also off camping with the Guides on Friday for 2 nights, so I don't think I'll feel like I've had a break once I go back to work next week!

Happy Stitching!

Another Happy Dance!

I finished 'Chorus Line' by Valerie Pfeiffer yesterday:

I'm really happy with the way my ex-UFOs are getting finished!  I've also nearly finished my Astrocats - just been waiting for more thread through the post...and it arrived today...

As is always the case, I have been shopping for more cross stitch stash (as if I haven't got enough!):

 Bothy Threads: Gorjuss 'Ruby'
 HAED: Selena Fenech 'L'

 HAED: Jasmine Beckett-Griffith 'Storykeep Butterflies Galore'

 HAED: Jasmine Beckett-Griffith 'TT Purple Dragon'

 Forever in my Heart: 'Cross Stitch Maniac'

I shall no doubt be making a start on at least one of these over the coming weeks!

I started my new part-time job last week, and I'm still trying to find my way around.  It's weird working in another school, with new colleagues...but I'm sure it will become quite natural soon!

I'm also soooo excited!  We've finally finished paying for our holiday in New York in the summer, and I've booked a cruise around the island, and sightseeing at the Top of the Rock!  I can't wait to go...even if it is still 3 months until then...We are also hoping to book tickets to see a show whilst there - probably 'Chicago'.

Happy Stitching!
