L for Lion

A very belated picture of last weekend's SAL with Karen on the Carriage House Samplings alphabet. This month is was L for Lion!


That's all the stitching I've done in the last two weeks except for working on an exchange piece that will be (I'm horrified to say) late going out. I've never been late with anything before and I'm very sorry. I really haven't been too well and there's been so much to do.

Following on from that, I think I'm going to have to cry off my SAL participation for the next two weeks. I hope no one minds. Feel free to carry on without me! I'll catch up later but I have a lot less stitching time right now and need to finish off the exchange and a round robin.

I also wanted to say thank you to people who offered to send me bits and pieces while I'm waiting for my stuff to arrive. With the amount I crammed into the suitcase I should have enough stitching to last the rest of the year, but thanks for the offers! The ship with our container doesn't dock until May 20th, so it'll be the end of May before we have any of our belongings.

Lastly, I'm way behind on blog reading - so apologies there too. I may have to read but not comment. I have hundreds of posts waiting to be checked. And I'm also off to visit my mum and dad on Wednesday, so I'll be out of touch again for another week. It's all go here!

  1. Lion looks great and the whole set look wonderful so far! I did finish Y, I need to dig it out and take a pic so that I can post it :)

    Sorry you've not been feeling too well, I hope you feel better soon {{{hugs}}}}

    Great progress on Toc II as well - it's looking lovely! I took mine in to be framed on Saturday and I can't wait to get it back! :)

    Take care!

  2. Your CHS alphabet looks wonderful :)
    Sorry you've been under the weather.
    I wouldn't worry about being late on the exchange...you've had a LOT going on in your life lately! I'm sure your partner understands :)

  3. You're back! I'm glad you all got home in one piece. I wouldn't worry about the exchange or the SALs. You must be so busy and exhausted from the move. And eventhough, you have returned home, everything is still different (than it was in NZ) and getting used to all that and seeing all your friends is bound to take up your energy. I know I don't react to change well, even if it is something I wanted. I always need an adjustment period.

  17. Love your CH Alphabet, Nicki... it's coming along beautifully!

    I hope you are feeling better soon and that things settle down for you a wee bit... I know how it is picking up the pieces and moving to another country... I moved from the US to Scotland... and back again... It's almost like you leave pieces of yourself scattered all about... It takes forever to get things sorted... Hope you and hubby and kitties settle back in soon... I know it's wonderful being home again!

    Have fun visiting your parents and I hope you get some rest! :-)
