End of summer...



Can't believe there's only a few days of summer holiday left! Sarah is back to school on Friday (new school - secondary) - it may seem strange to start on a Friday - it's on the new students (Year 7's) who are going on Friday - everyone else at her school starts Monday. Gives the Year 7's a chance to settle in a little. The others in our house start on Monday, as well. Anyway. Today was a doing nothing sort of day - the kids played, Olivia had been at a sleepover, so she came home from that and hung around - no big plans. Needless to say, when the kids have no plans, I get to sew, so I did.

I worked on the log cabin blocks for the Four Seasons Quilt, but honestly, they wouldn't be that exciting to look at at this stage, so I've decided to post a cross-stitch update instead. Fairly good progress - would have been better if I hadn't had to rip out an hour or so's worth of stitching due to not being able to count! Still, better than nothing, and in a day or two, it will be back in the right place...

Cross stitching is just as rewarding as quilting isn't it...and yes like quilting it involves some 'unpicking'...but it is all worth it in the end :-)

I LOVE your list of shame. Around here, we have the room of shame, the garage of shame, the ante-room of shame, the fridge of shame. It so helps to lighten up on shame and guilt when I label things thusly. Thanks :)

Lucky your three - we all go back in today (except Sarah who, as an Upper 6th student doesn't return until Mon 14th) Hope your eldest settles in well to her secondary school - this is it now Kate - the years will fly by, once one starts the others follow ever so quickly - Sarah's working on her personal statement for her Uni application - now that is scary!!!

Gorgeous cross-stitch...I too have that pattern, but never started it.
