Anyway, it is time for my next progress report on my goals for the year, so here goes:
As per my earlier post this month, April is finished. Now I need to sit down and sort out how I am going to turn this into a 12 inch square hanging. I'm very pleased with it, although the design is not my personal cup of tea. I would like to get this finish finished by the end of May.
Well, I definitely reached my goal for April on this one. I had my page finish on Monday 28 April - a day in which I put in over 3.5 hours on this piece dealing with all the confetti on page 1 and making a start on page 2. Since then, I have continued to put in a lot of time on this piece and you can now see the shape of the corgi's second ear coming in. I would like to have another page finish by the end of May, but we will see.
4. Guardian Angels
Abject apologies - nothing more to show on this one. Unfortunately I haven't touched it since January as far as I can see from my stitching journal. So the goal for May is to get some stitches done on this piece.
This is last week's photo as I have been too busy with Corgi this week. However I did complete my 6 blocks for April so I am still on target for a page finish at the end of the year. The goal for May is another 6 blocks.
6. Train of Dreams
Unfortunately I have fallen behind on Train of Dreams. I only managed to stitch 4 blocks out of the required 6 for the month, so am 2 blocks in arrears. However I have already done my first block for May, so would hope to pull back at least one block this month. That makes the goal for May 7 blocks in total.
7. Christmas ornaments
Still far too early to think about these.
In other news, Mum's hip replacement operation has been brought forward a week because the surgeon got his dates wrong. She is now slightly stressed because she has a week less to get everything sorted in. I have nothing to report on my weight loss because I didn't go to Slimming World this week. I forgot to take my book/card to work so that I could go and get weighed straight afterwards, and as I was expecting a friend for coffee that evening, I decided to take it as holiday. Just have to wait and see what the scales say this week.
Anyway, it's Bank Holiday weekend, the sun has been shining and I actually sat outdoors this afternoon without my jacket on and had a cup of tea with my parents. Things are definitely looking up on the whole, and on that cheery note I will wish you and yours all the best for a lovely week, and may the frog steer well clear of your stitching.
