Summer holidays.

The last few weeks have been rather busy , alas not with stitching , but sometimes real life has to come first ,lol.
 The end of school year is always busy , more so this year as my Daughter has now finished primary school. We had the usual Summer Fayre and day trips , but also some special events.
 Junior Prom , Leavers Assembly and the celebration assemblies where special awards are given out.
I was a very proud Mum when once again , both kids got awards. Daughter got an attendance award for being there more than 98% of time , and my gorgeous Son got the award for best effort for his year . His name will go on a plaque on the wall in the main hall . My Daughter has received at least one award every year at this school ,and so far so has my Son , so very proud of both of them.
  So , now we are in to Holiday time , so less stitching usually. Hubby has been off this week too , so we've had a few trips out and about. Today was a lazy day at home ,so I have managed some stitching time . I've also been reading rather a lot .
  After Batman , I stitched up this little lovely. A real pleasure to stitch , and it didn't take too long .
 Then I finally got round to finishing this one for my Daughter. It was started end of April but got neglected for a wee while. Glad to have it done though .
  After that , I had an enforced stitching break due to developing Shingles. The rash was where I usually rest my arm when stitching, and it was sore and uncomfortable for a couple of weeks . I had already started this one , again for my Daughter , and it should have been a quick stitch , but hey ho .
I've done bits and bobs over the last week or so , but quite a lot today to get it to the end , mind you , I know about it .
 Though the rash is mostly healed over, the flesh is still quite tender and it has been bothering me today , still, on-wards and upwards. I need to chart out a couple of labels for LQ now.
 Thanks for dropping by ,

Oh very nice accomplishments for your children. Your finishes are fantastic. I am sorry for your Shingles. Does it go away, or stay on and on to plague you?
