Birthday time and the Dragon gets a cookie

It's been a busy week this week with my eldest daughter turning 18!  She had a friend to stay last weekend, then a family party on Wednesday (her actual birthday) then a party with friends this weekend.

From this little thing......

To this, with her Grandma....

On a stitching front I've been working on Curl Up With A Good Book.  It seems to have been a slow process with the stem of the glass requiring many colour changes.  However looking at the photos I've done more than I realised and the dragon has a cookie..... well, very nearly!

Happy stitching.

Hello! I'm still here.

My plans for this new blog didn't last that long did they?  So much for the TUSAL and Turtle Trot trying to inspire me.  Life has just been busy - mind you when isn't it?  We've been touring universities every weekend looking at Psychology courses for my daughter.  Applications are all in now so we just wait and see.  Fingers crossed she makes the grades she needs to do the course she wants.

I have, however, started to pick up my needle again - yay. I've been stitching on Curl Up With A Good Book which is currently slow progress as there's only three or four stitches of any one colour at the moment.  But I should soon move on to an area that will fill quicker.

I've also made a little purchase to motivate me - what better way than to add to my collection of incomplete cross stitch?  I've bought a little Christmas chart and the materials to do Save The Stitches.  Hopefully they will arrive tomorrow.

 However, I do remember that I promised you pictures of the framed Celtic Summer and I don't want to disappoint you so here they are, better late than never hey?

Happy stitching everybody!
