My Baby Is Growing Up
Well, my baby is growing up. Today is her first day at school and I can't believe it's arrived. She went off with her best friend and her new teacher without crying, and I managed to stay tear free as well which is really good. She looked so grown up this morning in her uniform and so smart. She is only doing 8.45 til 12 for the three days this week, then she stays for lunch til 1.15 all next week, and the week after she is full-time til 3pm. She was scared this morning but we reassured her she will make lots of new friends and she will see her best friend everyday, and she'll learn lots and lots of new things, so we'll just have to see how it goes. I can't wait to pick her up at 12 and see how she got on and if she is okay lol.
Stitching wise I have another happy dance to share, one I'm extremely proud of myself for, as I've finished my first needleroll! I've had this Shepherd's Bush Needleroll kit since Erin was born lol, but decided recently I really needed to try one and this seemed sensible as it was a kit. I've loved every minute of stitching it and am really pleased I've learnt some more new techniques for it, mainly hemstitch (thanks for the encouragement when I was panicking Julie lol). I can definitely see the appeal of them and will be doing more soon I'm sure. Now that it is finished I need another small/medium to fill it's slot, and have decided to do the freebie Chatelaine Xmas Tree Mandala. I got the beads and special threads from Sew and So the other week, so will start kitting that up soon for when it's turn comes up. Figured if I get it started early I might get it framed and up for christmas this year instead of next lol.
So next up in the rotation is Tomboy and I'm hoping to get the current page finished this time round if possible. More of the dreaded blending filament but just got to suck it up and get it done. I'm thinking more and more that I want to get this finished this year, but I don't think it's going to happen. I've considered making it a focus and doing more hours on it somehow, but still thinking on how I could do it. I don't want to risk doing too many hours on it and getting sick of it so will have to be careful.
15 mins and I can set off to collect my schoolgirl! Have a good day everyone!
