Lots to catch up on.

Wow , time is certainly flying by this year .

Firstly ,welcome to my new followers , it is great to see you here  ,especially when I am posting a bit sporadically at best ,lol.

Lots going off at the moment , end of school year always leaves me with very little time to myself . Two separate sports days , celebration assemblies (two again) , trips , school fairs and other things all conspire to take my time away . Not that I am complaining too much , it is a joy to be able to share these things with my kids , especially the assemblies as pretty much every year , one or both of them receive at least one award. I am very proud of their efforts at school .

Anyway , on to other things. you may know that I organised a birthday thread exchange to start this year . It started out great, and on the whole has run pretty well with a few hiccups .
 Mary Jane has no blog , so I said I'd post her pics on here .

Thanks for the photos Mary Jane .x

  Lonneke unfortunately had a couple of her beautiful cards go missing in the post , so she was a superstar and sent out replacements. A big Thanks Lonneke . The only fly in the ointment has been that Bernadett has not been sending . Sharon and Mary Jane have only just received from her ,and their birthdays are March and April and everyone else who has had birthdays since then have not received . I have tried many times to get in touch with Bernadett to no avail . To say I am disappointed is a huge understatement , but I will leave it at that .

 On to stitching , I have been still stitching squares for Love Quilts UK . I have enjoyed every single stitch . I am working on one at the moment and have three more sign ups to do . After that , I think I will be taking a bit of a break as I am getting a strong urge to do my own stuff .

  Love this Lion , I nicknamed him Jon Bon because of his lovely mane.
 SuperMan for a super young man .

 At the moment I am working on a Formula 1 car , which is a huge stitch . 120 x 100 and it is all stitched . I really want to get it done asap but with all the school events , it  is probably going to take a while . I will show a pic next time , which will hopefully not be as long ,lol.

  I have other bits and bobs to catch up on , so will be back soon.
Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath x

Hopefully if Bernadett has sent to 2 of us she will catch up with everyone else too. Not an excuse for her or anything!

Love the lion, very majestic.

Best wishes.

Bernadett is also the person who let me down for my Easter Egg Change a few months ago.... Let's just hope she is okay, that's the most important think.
Would you be organizing that little birthday card/thread again??? I've seen it on several blogs & find it's a really good idea... I might be tempted to join the fun! :)

I find that in exchanges etc there's always that SOMEONE out there who doesn't follow through with their commitment to the exchange! I don't know if its rudeness or shame that they won't respond in any kind to the organizer. Man up and admit you are in over your head or can't meet the commitment or need longer to follow through. Its easier to ignore/hide.

On the pleasant side your squares are great and yeah that Lion has the look of Bon Jovi!!!

Nary Jane's cards and threads are beautiful. I can't remember which card I send, lol. I did received from Bernadett a couple weeks ago. I don't know if you got the email.

Your stitching is lovely. Bon Jovi looks majestic.
