Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on Celtic Welcome.  I am going to take it to be framed this week and hopefully should  have it hanging in the hallway of our home very soon.

Since finishing Celtic Welcome I haven’t done much stitching at all.  I really couldn’t decide what I wanted to stitch on.  I fancied a new start, but talked myself out of that as I’ve quite a few things I would like to get finished.  I dabbled about with Cirque des Carreaux, then picked up Ribbon Sampler but really wasn’t in the mood for either of them for some reason.  I tried Carol Singers but I tend to stitch on that at weekends when I can stitch during the daytime as I need good light for that design.

However, my mind was made up for me today with the arrival of the third LHN SAL  ornament – He’s a Flake.  This is such a cute little design, I’ve already started on it this evening and hopefully by the time I finish it one of my WIPs will have caught my attention again.

I’ve been wasting a little time this week playing around with my blog template, the few templates I’ve tried so far have made all of my photographs get chopped around a bit, so if you do visit and have trouble seeing my photographs in full I’d be very grateful if you could leave a comment to let me know.  It looks like I may have to edit all the photographs to shrink them down a little to make other templates work, which sounds like a lot of hard work to me LOL.

On the non stitching front from next week I am back to full time employment, having only worked four days a week for the last few years (apart from the odd week where I’ve covered for holidays on my day off).  I am used to having a three day weekend (Monday being my day off) so I think for the next few weeks I’m going to be shattered!


Totally Useless SAL

Last year, even though I joined the Totally Useless SAL I was totally useless at posting my pictures on the right days, normally by the time I’d remembered it was time to post it was already too late to do so.  This year I hope to do a little better.  This is what I have collected since 1st January.

Already quite a lot of red in there again this year, because I have been stitching Celtic Welcome this week and have started to work on the red dragon.  I will post a pic of my progress over the weekend.

Tonight we had to take Louis to the vet as he came home yesterday with what we initially thought was a broken tail, but it turns out that he has been bitten twice on his tail once at the very start of the tail and once about halfway down.  Poor Louis was feeling extremely sorry for himself last night, and he he was in quite a bit of discomfort but a couple of injections and he should be on the mend now.  When we got home from the vet we took him out of the cat carrier and put him on a lovely thick fleecy blanket on the sofa but he decided there was somewhere else he’d rather be !

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for visiting!
