Catching up on photos part 1

Time to catch up on some of the stitching posts that have been waiting to be shared since the beginning of the year!

Today it's St Reatham. I was stitching this on the train when I was working
in Cambridge and I have to say I haven't picked it up since I lost my job in February. Much as I love it, it's a bit sad to see it still. This is about a year's worth of train journeys and it's over halfway there. I will get back to it one day!

We're settling back to a two-cat life. Lulu is doing well. She is still too thin but has put on a fair bit of weight. She follows us round everywhere and thankfully shows no desire to go out apart from going to the loo. She's not even glanced at the gate at the end of the garden. She didn't relax or sleep much at all for several days but finally had a good sleep on Friday.

We had yet more bad news this week with a family member in hospital, but hopefully it's nothing serious. This year is really turned out badly. But the good news is that the freelance work is going OK - so much so that I signed up for a new block of the month! My Antique Flower Garden is coming to an end and I'm almost up to date with it, so shortly I'm going to be shaking my tail feathers!


  1. I'm really glad to hear that Lulu's settling back into regular life. Phew! And I'm super happy to hear that the freelancing is going well! :D

  2. Glad to hear that your work is going well. The Tail Feathers project looks like fun. One day you and LuLu will both feel up to facing the things from your past, but for now you can take comfort in each other. CJ ok;-)

  3. Poor Lulu. It sounds like she went through a lot out on her own. It's great that your freelance is going well. The redwork is stunning! That piece is way out of my league!

  4. Glad to hear that Lulu is settling back down. St Reatham and Shake your tail feathers are gorgeous

  5. So glad that Lulu is home and settling down.

    Love how St Reatham is coming along.

    I'm glad to hear that your freelancing is going well Nicki, that's good news :) Your new BOTM is so cute - I bought myself a Patisserie Jelly Roll to make a bag, now I just need to get around to actually doing it.

    Sorry to hear about your relative, I hope they're feeling better soon. I think a few of us will be glad when 2009 is over!

  7. Beautiful progress on SR!!

    Hope your family member is feeling better!!

  8. St. R is looking fine!

  9. It would be such a shame to not work on St.Reatham, I hope you get back to it soon.
    Good to hear Lulu is doing well now she is safely home.
