I haven't had a very successful stitching week this week. I stitched a little bit on my Celtic Lady on Tuesday, but only got some of her hair done, so I won't bother taking a picture - Tuesday was just wayyyyy too busy, I stitched while I caught up on a couple of Desperate Housewife episodes in the afternoon, but then I had a McDonald's fundraiser to help at (for Cameron's soccer team) and straight from there to Levin for a cricket meeting, DH was away, again, so between all that I had to get kids home and semi-organised ready for biggest brother to get to bed, the rest of the week hasn't got much better!
Work is really busy right now - it's a bit sad that that has been my little bit of "quiet and space", and suddenly that's not happening either! LOL ... I don't mind too much, I quite enjoy it when it's busy - but my stitching is suffering ;)
I've also had a cold all week, so between soccer meeting Monday night, cricket meeting Tuesday night, preparing the accounts, correspondence etc for both of them, and then of course the work I always have after a meeting, not being particularly well, all the usual kids stuff ... needless to say I am hanging out big time for the school holidays to start next week! Life should be slightly quieter, maybe.
I have been stitching Spooky Row - and am nearly finished it, hopefully I'll have a happy dance picture tomorrow :)
Today is DH's birthday - Happy Birthday DH! ... I'm going to try and make a cake that looks like the Birmingham City Football Club's logo this morning, to surprise him - I don't think it will be "too" hard, but I could be fooling myself!
If it turns out okay, I'll take a photo ;)
Oh! and how could I forget ... I *had* to do an on-line stash order (hmmm nearly two weeks ago now) ... I ordered a birth sampler kit I've promised to do for an on-line friend, wedding sampler chart that I'm going to do for my sister who is getting married in February ... and of course I couldn't *just* order those, so I ordered Mermaids of the Deep and the goodies to go with it as well ... I can't wait to start this one, I'm hoping Carol and Katrina will let me join in with their SAL :) ... although, I haven't heard anything back about my order yet, but it is noted that the birth sampler takes 5-6 weeks to order in ... so I'm picking I might have to wait for a while longer *pount*.
