Jubilee Days

Hope everyone is enjoying the Jubilee festivities! I only had Sunday and today off work, although lucky Shaun has had four days in total off work - but I guess it is my own fault for working in retail! 

I know I have been quiet for a while, but "real" world caught up with me, It was lovely weather for so long that I did not want to miss the opportunity of some sunshine - It always makes you feel better when there's sun about. I spent alot of time with the family, which included a bit of gardening her and there, having my haircut with mum and cinema nights with Shaun. 

I haven't done alot of stitching to say the least, the next pictures are where I am with White Lightening at the moment, and then I packed him away for rotation for a while...

My rotational pile had my 'Live Life, Love tea', right at the top, so I started with a little back stitching at the start and then progressing in bits that I had to re-order threads for as I had used most of them up - whoops!

Missy was certainly not impressed with my stitching afternoon at all!

  1. Real life is also important and sunshine is something to enjoy. You're very right about taking your time to do other things beside cross stitch. Still think you made quite some progress. Both are lovely projects!

  2. As long as you're enjoying yourself, that's what matters. Still love seeing your updates on White Lightening. He really is gorgeous. Cute WiP.
