Very little stitching done...

I've spent the last 2 weeks working on ByGone Stitches' "One Nation".  I stayed with it for 2 weeks because I've been extremely busy with work and Guiding activities, so had minimal stitching time.  I have made some progress, though:

This week will be spent on L&L's "In the Arms of an Angel".  I hope to get plenty stitching time this week, as DH is away until Tuesday evening, so tomorrow evening can be spent in my stitching chair!  Here is the Angel before I started stitching on her again tonight:

Happy Stitching!

Ruby Progress and Teaching Cross Stitch

I've managed to get quite a lot of Gorjuss Ruby stitched this week:

I'm quite happy with the amount I've managed to do, but it's time to change to another piece.  My husband drew out a piece of paper a short time ago, and this week's stitching will be on:

"One Nation" by ByGone Stitches

This is a large project, so I don't think the progress will be as noticeable...

On Friday, I helped to start a Cross Stitch session at school, as part of Golden Time.  I took some of my smaller pieces to show the children, and then they started designing and stitching a bookmark on binca, with a border and their initials or name on it.  They all enjoyed it, once they had started stitching:

I'm looking forward to next week's session!

Have a good week, and Happy Stitching!
