On Saturday night my 2 boys had their presentation at Sheffield Dragons to collect their new karate belts. Luke our Little Dragon collected his green stripe belt.
And Peter our Junior Dragon got awarded his green belt.
My SALs have been going great guns lately. As some of you know last year I joined the Beau Bands SAL with my yahoo group Friendly Stitchers. This was designed by Abi Gurden and is no longer available. But I finally finished my Beau Bands this weekend on my lovely Sunday stitching day. Here is the stitching all completed...now I just have to make it up into the hussif.
I've also managed to catch up on my Tree of Stitches and my Little Lace Hardanger SAL, both of these are with The Stitch Specialists yahoo group.

Little Lace Hardanger SAL
This is my first proper go at hardanger and I'm so enjoying it. Spent Monday night happily counting from 1-5 working on my Kloster blocks. The cutting is coming soon....argh!
Next week the kids are all back in school so I'll be back to stitching on Luke's dragon, my SAL's and my UFO which is my French postcard SAL. This time though I'll have a full 2 days with no kids :-) The housework is never going to get done as fast!!
