An Update

So much for daily blogging, I'm turning into a weekly blogger! Life just seems to have been busy lately - I worked a few extra Easter/Anzac breaks and of course, that doesn't make the rest of my life any less busier!

The soccer season kicked off on Saturday and all seems to have gone very smoothly, phew ... that's a big thing in my life - no angry phone calls from parents whose children missed out on teams etc etc ... 650 children successfully processed and happy :)

Yesterday I spent the whole day putting the cricket accounts into MYOB ... all 10 months of them, just need to put in the last months and then next month will be a breeze and they'll be ready to send off to the auditor ready for preparing for the AGM in July ... another *phew*.

Don't I lead an exciting life?

The kids are good - nothing exciting happening in their lives, which is a good thing :)

Stitching - I've finished a couple of things, totally thrown off my rotation - sheesh! I can't even last a month LOL ... I completely blame Karen V this time though ... I saw her Homeward Bound needleroll and fell in love, I've had this kitted up for ages but didn't really know what I was going to do with it, so I'm shamelessly copying her idea ... and stitch To the Sea as well, which I will finish the same :)

Celtic Summer is nearly there - those beads are taking forever, i think I'm about halfway through them now ... I'm hoping to finish it today/tonight though ... then I'll pretend I live in the Northern Hemisphere so that I finished it in April ... not May! LOL

Here is Homeward Bound -

I'll be back later to update my May rotation and April round up!

I know what you mean... I think I've become a weekly blogger too LOL. Isn't it a shame when life gets in the way of our stitching and blogging?

Glad that the soccer registration went smoothly... wow 650?!

I love To the Sea!!

Wow, you have been really busy. I'm so glad that you were able to get the soccer season off to a perfect start and you're getting on top of all of the cricket paperwork, too. Great needlerolls you've stitched! :)

Sounds like you've been busy Lisa!

Congratulations on finishing Homewrad at Last and To the Sea - they both look great and will look wonderful as needlerolls. Glad to have been your inspiration!

I know just what you mean, and I am not half as busy as you on my days off.

Loved the 'new to be' needlerolls.
