I am all ready for Saturday - I am teaching at the sewing shop in Tywyn. The lady who owns the shop runs workshops and asked me to do a hardanger day. I have designed three bookmarks and have charted and printed them ready. I have also bought all the threads and fabric. It looks quite a hoard but there will be 12 ladies and depending on which chart they chose they could need 2, 3 or 4 different threads.
Because we are away for the reveal day of the Totally Useless SAL I have taken a picture of my jar today. It's filling up but is mainly ecru so doesn't show up to well and I have been busy doing my charts so I haven't done much stitching at all.
I have managed to find time to do the UFO work for this week. St George now has a full cross and most of the background on the right side. I am taking it to Wales and will be doing some more next Tuesday.
My weight is just dropping off - I lost another 1 1/2 pounds this week. I am following the diet but I am under quite a bit of stress at the moment and I'm sure that is helping my weight loss.
DS is finding it a little difficult, as are DH and me. DD is doing fine and was quite confident after her exam and received a distinction for her latest piece of PE coursework. My school is having major changes in September some of which are starting to happen now and it is a little unsettling so more stress and concerns (not worry though) there. And I have resigned from my role as District Chairman for Nuneaton Scouts. I feel very sad about it as I have been in Scouting fro 25 years, longer really if you count my time as a youngster. Again there have been lots of changes and I just feel it's the right time to move on, however now it has happened I do actually feel quite a loss. I have not been feeling too good just lately, quite down and very tired, a symptom of the MS that I don't manage very well (my physical problems are just annoying and can be laughed off) I think I do need this break at the caravan if only to find some peace and relax. Thankfully I can get to church there on Sunday for the Family Service.
Enjoy half term, happy stitching, be back Thursday.
