Grateful Hearts exchanged received
Look at the gorgeous exchange piece I received from Julianne. I'm not sure of her blog address, I'll have to find it. Isn't this design pretty, and in a lovely thread too, and I love the fabby, and then look at the picture below to see what wonderful gifts Julianne sent me. I love them all, and she even sent me a Just Nan chart, I don't know how she knew that I didn't have that one. I'm thinking the design would be great as needleroll.
And here we have Week 5 of the JN SAL, you may have noticed there was no Week 4, well that's because my weekends have been taken up, and there's been not stitching happening here. See below if you want to know what I've been doing. I've not yet stitched the rabbit, if you wonder about the space at either side of the verse. That's because it's done in a Caron thread, which I don't have and Rene has kindly offered to send me enough to stitch it with. Aren't stitchers the kindest people.
And here is MOP from the last post, when blogger wouldn't accept her.
Now then, I'll just tell you what I've been up to. About 3 weeks ago we received a letter from ds17 college regarding University admissions for 2008, and it stated that he had to have his application in by 19th October 2007. This was also news to ds, so I had him sign up for some Uni Open Days. And this has kept me busy. I had to do the driving, and each trip was 2-3 hours driving each way. So in the last 3 weekends we've been to Hull University, Teesside University, Staffordshire University and Nottingham Trent University. All this driving made me tired, and my eyes sore, so that meant I didn't stitch. I've also been busy at work, and done a couple of nearly 10 hour days, and even went to work on Friday, which is normally my day off. Although I did have the Monday off, but that was spent doing Housework, washing, ironing etc. Now I have a week off, and took dd to get her haircut today, and then she has to go to the dentist on Wednesday for a couple of fillings. Which reminds me, I need to find myself a NHS dentist if I can.
