Another week over

Okay, it's Monday again so will try and update this blog on a weekly/biweekly basis - i think this is doable (don't know if that is a proper word but looks good) as long as the IT spymasters at work keep at bay.. don't get much peace and quiet at home to get on the pc for long so it tends to be while on break at work..

Have started on a Round Robin from Ally's Round Robin group on Yahoo. This is my second rr and i am really loving it..this year my rr is Cats and Quilts for Diane Graebner, my section is done and we are now on to number two..at the moment I am doing Lynda's section - it is a town square design where you choose from a variety of shops, really cute! I have chosen a bookshop to do and am about half way there - just to decide on a colour for the awning - using GAST threads for these, all nice greens and browns. Will get a picture of this up in the next day or two..

I am sticking to my rotation quite rigidly at the mo as I find it keeps things ticking along, so I am on week 2 at the mo and have nearly finished a tree from M designs for my dd Neve who is 7, should get it finished tonight or tomorrow (again picture will follow), just to add some beads for some nice Christmas sparkle - Neve wants to choose these though.. then I will start on a tree for Joe my wee boy who is 3 , using some nice bluey fabric for this but he insists he wants it pink as that is his favourite colour! So am going to dig out some nice bright pink thread to do the lettering and that should keep him happy. I plan to then turn them into bellpulls but have never done this before so this may change as i am the world's worst finisher! I can cross-stitch to my hearts content but can not sew to save myself.

Other than that i feel that life is calming down a bit, the last few weeks have felt really hectic with work and the kids and silly things like getting all the bits for the car's mot and thinking about Christmas pressies and being at the dentist five times in the last three weeks with various things but i do now think that it is all finally coming together and i can finally stop and relax for a bit - feel like i just do not have enough hours in the day sometimes or maybye i should just give up my job, that we would be a much better option - of course when they came to repossess the house it would maybe be not such a good idea lol!!!)
