WIPocalypse #7 July

To start with I would like to apologise for the awful pictures. The weather is awful today and has been awful all week and I can't seem to take a good picture. I blame only the weather not my bad photo taking skills though!

Well I have some exciting news this month. Mum finally finally finally got boxers framed! It's awesome :D

Oh and I have been very busy with afternoon tea. I am stitching over a couple of pages at the moment because I wanted to reach the gem and it was easier than stopping part way. I'm almost there.

Lots and lots of black but I am just taking it bit by bit. Not doing much at the moment I have been doing the border.

Oh and last but not least I have done some more of Jardin Prive - Sampler Aux Fleurs I do love this design and my pictures never do it justice.

I have actually been working this week, I worked 4 days this week so I have made as much money as I used to in those 4 days as I was making in a month. I also thoroughly enjoyed my job, I had one class for three days while they were waiting for their contract teacher and I got a recommendation by the other teacher I worked with to the deputy so I made a good impression.

I am thoroughly excited about this change in jobs I am much happier and less stressed though I seem to have less time for myself than I did the driving is much less!

Anyway here is my wonderful update with very bad pictures!



  1. Your pictures aren't bad - they show how lovely your stitching is. Great going on both projects, and the framed boxers are smashing. Glad you're enjoying your new job :-)
