A long overdue update!

Good grief I didn't realise it had been so long since I'd posted! I have been a bit preoccupied lately, mostly with health issues of close family members back in Australia, secondly with the new Sims2 expansion pack and most recently with the purchase of our home here!

Anyway, I have been stitching and have even managed to catch up with Lisa a couple of times. Every time we get together we say we will stitch but to date that hasn't happened - lol! Too busy chatting - maybe next time, Lisa?!

Okay, some pics ...

First, is my current progress on Verdure - I kept working on her after the March HAED Challenge SAL weekend as I wasn't happy with the lack of progress I made during that SAL.

Second is my current progress on Long Dog Samplers "St Georges". This is my car/travel project but I have been working on it the past few evenings as well. It doesn't require too much concentration and there are no colour changes so it is a pretty easy stitch.

I'm currently being harassed by the dog (she has her head on my thigh and is staring at me with her big brown eyes!) as she hasn't been for her morning walk yet so I will sign off for now :)

Both pieces are looking lovely. The color you've chosen for the Long Dog is beautiful!

Lovely to see your post Mel - I hope things are settling down for your family in Aus.

Wow purchasing a home in a foreign country - now that is brave :) Congratulations :)

St George is gorgeous - what colour is the thread you're using Mel?

I am enjoying seeing Verdure come to fruition too - it's a long slog though eh?

I love the colour you are using for St. Georges - it's so pretty!

Great progress on both Mel, love the colours your using for St. Georges.

Hope everything at home gets better soon.
