Still here

Hi folks , I know I have been neglecting my blog of late ,the truth is , not done much stitching either .
We have had a couple of big stress factors since the end of February which seem to have infected everything at the moment , so my mojo for most things is pretty low.
Add that to the extra long holidays the kids seem to have had from school , and everything has gone to pot. With Easter being late , inset days and extra bank holidays added on, they were off for three weeks , and they're only back at school for three weeks before half term.
Anyway , I was one of the lucky people who received an gorgeous lavender bunny from Nia.
Thanks again Nia , I love it and have it on the shelf next to my seat .X
I have done a bit of stitching. Three chickens from Cross Stitcher issue 229 (before they changed it). They will be joined by a fourth (eventually) and hopefully turned into a couple of cushions.

I'm hoping to find some gingham's in black and red to make them up . Work on the fourth chicken is slow , but hopefully things will improve soon.

Thanks for dropping by ,

Nice to have you back!
I know how you feel ~ it seems like the kids are on permanent hols plus my DD has been on study leave too and to top it all my DH has changed jobs and is on a 3month break until he restarts ~ one very full house!
Love the chickens, I've been tempted to stitch them too and the gingham finish will be perfect
