Schools are Open - Hurray!

It's been a long 6 weeks with the kids off school and my shoulder still giving me pain that we didn't do as much as we usually do. However I did manage to get some stitching time in.

After finally completing DS2's dragon I decided on a smaller project to do next. DH has been wanting me to stitch this for a while as it's going to be our family motto:
Sue Hillis Designs
I've also taken part on an Autumn exchange with my stitching group on Facebook. This is a photo of what I received from Carla. I saw the autumn sampler on her FB page and loved it, she designed it herself and send me a copy as part of the exchange. She also crocheted me a bag/holder for my kindle (couldn't cope without a kindle now!) and it's got lots of pockets for me to slide bits in as well.  Can't show you what I've sent to my partner as she hasn't received it yet.

Here's my progress so far on my Castles In The Air. I've nearly finished part 2 and am so enjoying working on it I just wish I had a bit more time somedays!

And finally here is where I'm at with my French Postcard SAL for DS1. Still a few more months to go!

I also made an ornament for DS1's French Teacher as a thank you. Due to unforseen circumstances she's had to give up her private lessons at the minute so she was a bit upset, thought it may cheer her up. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo before I sent it to her, it was a small square ornament saying Merci and had a flower on it, I stitched it all in Six Strands Sweets. So annoyed I forgot to take the photo but as long as she likes it that's what counts.

  6. The YM bit made me laugh, I still don't look smart even though it is just me to get out the door these days. If you've washed your face, done teeth and the t shirt isn't inside out it's a GOOD day! Hope morale is improving in the P household, lol! Love the postcards SAL.
