Good and bad

The good is that I have finally finished the monster transcription job that was taking up so much of my time. I like getting these huge transcriptions, because it does mean there is extra money coming in, which is extremely useful of course, but on the other hand they do seem to go on for ever and the further into the job I get the longer it seems to take me and the more I procrastinate and the harder I find it to knuckle down and get them done. I can say that by the end of this job I was completely sick of sitting in front of a computer screen, which is very odd for me as I really don’t know what I’d do without my computer LOL.

The bad is that once I had finished the job and started to get back to normal I came down with some kind of virus which has left me shattered and with a very sore throat and the most awful earache, so my plans for getting back to my stitching have been delayed a little because I have just been too tired to concentrate for any length of time. I only have two pics to share this week, firstly Masquerade which I worked on last Sunday for a little while


Pop over to Sheila’s blog and you will see that she is racing ahead of me in this SAL, but with a bit of luck I will catch up a little today.

Secondly, Northanger Abbey which I worked on last Tuesday – not far to go on this one! (Sorry for the blurry photo!)


Finally, it’s time for this months TUSAL, mine doesn’t look a lot different from last month really lol


I am very behind on blog reading and know that I will never catch up with everything I have missed (there were over 600 entries in my blog reader this morning!) but I will try to visit as many as I can.

I’m off to put my feet up for the afternoon and maybe try and catch Sheila up on Masquerade 😉

  1. hope you’re feeling lots better Sandra and that you get some stitching in this afternoon to catch up with Sheila ^^

  2. Bummer about getting sick! Hope you’re feeling better soon. Glad the transcription work is done at least — hopefully with a big paycheck! Love your stitching! Very pretty! I want to stitch the Jane Austen piece someday.

  3. I won’t be stitching until this evening so it won’t be long until you catch up, it stitches up really quickly. Hope you are feeling better – you could always send me the tapes but it’s been so long since I typed properly not sure if I could lol

  4. Hope you feel better Sandra.
    Sometimes these little virus type things can really knock the wind out of your sails! Rest up and don’t feel bad about pampering yourself.

  5. Oooh I hope you feel better soon, there’s so many nasty things going around right now.

    Despite the slow progress, the WIPs look great.

  6. Sad to read you have been sick, get well soon {huggles}

    Lovelt progress, the more i see Northanger, the more i love it, think i might have to give in and get this one LOL

  7. Sorry you’re under the weather – hop[e you are feeling better now. As for the lovely stitching projects – all progress is progress. Both look great.
