It's high time I showed you some updated SAL photos, so here we go!
First, my Friday SAL on Blackstone Garden Fantasy. I haven't managed to get a lot done but I have been putting in a length or two of thread most weeks. I love the colours - it's really coming together.
Then last weekend's SAL with Karen on the CHS alphabet. I did N for Needle this month.
Then my Sunday SAL on Beatrix Potter's Quaker. Again, I've been putting in a length of thread here and there.
And last but not least, Monday's SAL with Lina. I didn't have a lot of time but I did almost get one side of part 5 finished.
I have a day off today. Hooray! It's my first day off for nearly 2 weeks and I need it. I was exhausted yesterday. But we're now owed a fair bit of money for the work I've done so it's worth it. I celebrated by buying some clothes for the first time in possibly about 4 years (I can't remember the last new clothes I bought!) and we have a bottle of fizz in the fridge for later.
We're also celebrating my Dad's birthday (though he's in Scotland we'll be having a drink for him!) He's been in and out of hospital over the last few weeks but he's home and getting better now. Nothing too terrible - a gardening gash on the leg that turned into cellulitis and then a bleeding stomach ulcer on top - but it's taken it out of him and it was scary when he collapsed because he's normally so fit and healthy.
And lastly we're celebrating the fact that we have a legal, taxed and registered car! It's taken months to get through all the red tape but we have wheels at last. A triple hooray!
