Sorry!

First of all I need to apologize for not updating my blog for a while.  A family tragedy back in the UK as well as my Dad undergoing surgery has turned life upside down. It's a times like this that I wish we didn't live on the other side of the world!

Anyhoo, as you can imagine, not much stitching has been done although I long for the relief and relaxation that stitching can bring. Here's where I was the last time I showed you Simple Treasures...



And here's where I am now...



Hopefully I will be able to get the old needle out and have it working overtime soon!

My postman did bring a bit of a ray of sunshine by delivering this month's World of Cross Stitching magazine which has my Nautical Alphabet in it.....

  World of Cross Stitching Issue 204
Immediate Media Co.

As you can tell by the picture, the sun decided to make an appearance and has made the picture a bit blurry at the bottom! 

And a quick update for everyone who helped out my daughter by posting on her blog, which was for one of her courses at uni.....she got a A!!! Thanks you so much to everyone who posted about their country's superstitions, she couldn't have done it without all those wonderful people taking time to post -  and they were very interesting to read!

Until next time....happy stitching!

You've made quite a bit of progress on your piece and I do love the piece itself.
I'm hoping that all is well within your family at this time.

Ich wünsche Dir viel Kraft für deine Familie.

Sorry about the family troubles. I know exactly how you feel. Being too far away to help makes you feel really useless. Don't worry people understand. Your little stitchy update looks great and make me want to work back on this project! I need an other pair of hands! :D Congrats to your daughter for her A! xx
