The problem was being tired on Sunday after 3 early morning starts courtesy of the Small Boy and needing a nap in the afternoon. Followed by 3 days of work getting some overtime in covering my colleagues' holidays.
Some days I barely managed 20 stitches on this design so I'm not counting them in my Pie Chart at the end of the month.
Here is the whole piece so far:
Finally, there will be a Summer Blog Hop this year. I will be returning to the Postcard theme.
Each person emails me a photo of something they have stitched which is suitable as a postcard to a fellow stitcher along with a short message of the kind you write on a postcard. I will forward the photo to another participant who shows it on their blog. The photo can be anything Summer themed, beach themed, holiday themed, you get the idea! It can be a new piece or something from your archives. The Hop will run over the whole of the Summer with a few cards going out each week. Final deadline will be the end of August, just in time for Back to School! If you'd like to take part then leave a comment or send me an email.
I have received some cards already but haven't responded to those people yet because of the reasons at the beginning of the post! But I will. This weekend is for emails.
