Only four more houses to finish building!

Sampler Gameboard has suddenly grown and reached the nearly finished stage ... it's only taken about five years! LOL




I've been ignoring the border - hopefully once the inside is all finished the border will be a breeze because it will be so close to being finished. I'd like to work on it all weekend and finish it - but I really need to stitch up a pin-keep for the pin-keep exchange, I'm hopeless at leaving things until the last minute - but I do know it should be a pretty quick thing to do, hopefully!





Here is a picture of where I am at -







It's been a busy week here, what with gym camp for a couple of days, working, entertaining children ... just the usual, but it seems to have been go go go.





Back to school next week - I have to admit that although I'll miss sleeping in and not rushing out the door just before 9.00am - I am looking forward to having the house to myself for a few hours a day ... and not listening to the bickering ;) ... okay, okay ... they don't bicker ALL the time - right now they are all playing cards together - so they can be good!


Righty oh - I need to get off here and tidy the house a wee bit, and then take Charlotte to her gym class ... ever get the feeling my life is dominated by soccer and gymnastics?

Gameboard sampler looks great! Good luck getting your pin keep finished. And yup, I definitely feel that life is ruled by sports. ;-)

You are getting a record like me for finishing pieces!! Love, love the bag. Haven't been online much to catch up on the blogs so just seeing it now. We started soccer and netball last weekend too so it's goodbye weekends for another 4 months!

The sampler gameboard looks fantastic. It's funny when you pull these pieces out and state that you've been working on them for years. It must just be that you've had them tucked away because you are one of the fastest stitchers I know.

I hear you on the sports thing. My life is dominated by soccer and baseball.
