Happy, happy, happy Dance!
Elsa Williams - Setting Sail kit, using 14ct Aida. This is for VERY good friends of ours, Jim bought it in America, Deb gave it to me to secretly stitch. His birthday is November 14th, so she'll have plenty of time to get it framed to give to him. I am SO pleased to have this obligation stitching over with ... I can now just enjoy my own things for a while (well, until I order the birth sampler kit I've promised to do for another friend ...).
I think I'm going to start DT's Sunflower Bellpull next - and maybe a couple of other little things. I need to work out a good rotation in my head - definitely Celtic Summer on a Tuesday, I just need to decide what nights to do another couple of specific projects.
Another board I'm on has been very quiet lately, one of the ladies suggested that we share everything, including our childrens' bruises ... well, Charlotte obviously read it and understood it, and obeyed! LOL
This is the result of being told forever not to swing on the towel rails above the bath (this child of course, swings on everything - truth be known she was probably practicing re-grips ;)) ... anyway, she seems to understand why we kept on telling her not to, and why we kept saying she MIGHT hurt herself. It doesn't seem to sore today - just looks horrible.
and just in case you think I only take pictures of our littlest child, here is Josh at his first flute performance. He did SO well, he just started this year, has never read music before, whereas most of the other kids did some beginning stuff the year or two before and were that little step ahead ... but he was one of the three who did a duet (duet, with three?) at the end ... we're very proud of him :) He is our "unsporty" child - which must be hard in a household that seems to be sports crazy - but we seem to have found his own little niche away from all that :)
... and now, I've really got to go do some housework!
