Playing Catch-Up!!

Firstly, many thanks for the lovely comments on Snowflake - much appreciated :)

We have visitors at the moment hence the lack of posts recently. I have managed a little stitching however although not as much as I would like. I've been getting up at 5.45am to walk the dog and by the time I sit down in the evenings I'm just too tired to stitch much.

Last weekend was the April instalment of the HAED BB Yearly Challenge SAL so it was time to bring Verdure out for a bit of attention. I was hoping to finish the first page this time around but of course I forgot to factor in that I would have visitors and so that didn't happen.

Anyway, here is my progress ...

Sorry about all the threads etc - it was a bit of a "drive by" shot so I didn't think to tidy up the ends etc before I took it :)

Next up is my progress on Long Dog Samplers "St Georges" - I remembered to bring it in from my truck this afternoon which is where I mostly work on it while I'm waiting for the kids to get out of school. It is coming along nicely I think.

Long Dog Samplers

Blogger Photos is being contrary at the moment so I'm using Webshots for this one.

My SIL is staying with us at the moment just until she finds a place of her own. She arrived just over a week ago to take up a short term job contract. The kids are enjoying having their "action aunty" around :) My parents-in-law arrived to visit a couple of days after SIL so at the moment I have a house full!! The PILs leave on Wednesday to continue their travels so it will just be me and my doggy shadow again during the day - I'm never lonely :)

Well, it is way past my bedtime and I have another busy day tomorrow so I'd better sign off and head for bed!

Happy stitching!

You do have a full house, with all that going on it would be difficult to find much time to stitch. St Georges is looking great, beautiful color.

Crikey you've got your hands full at the moment - bet it's wonderful to have family around for a bit though :) Your HAED is looking awesome - and the LD is a real stunner. What thread are you using for St Georges? ... it's just gorgeous! :D

Mel, St Georges is just stunning. I feel it mirrors the colours of the desert. You sound so busy with your visitors.
