Hi all - apologies to everyone who has been hanging on with bated breath for an update from yours truly. Life and work kind of got in the way again I'm afraid but I have been stitching ... not as often as I would like, but I have made some progress. So, without further ado here's a quick roundup - hang onto your seats!!
Next on to Blackberry Jam. It was around this time that things started to go a little bit pear-shaped. Last year I was plagued by headaches which were finally put down to work related stress - I quit the job and the headaches went away. Now unfortunately they have returned with a vengeance and nary a day goes by without a headache - or worse - a migraine! What little stitching time I get in the evenings and weekends has been eaten into drastically by these nasty things and Blackberry Jam fared worst of all - and after several attempts and even more froggings, this is all I managed. I think the lesson to be learned here is don't stitch when tired/have a headache/fuzzy eyes. Luckily by the time this come round in rotation again we will (hopefully) have much better weather, longer nights and the chance of stitching in daylight.
