"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

Well into Autumn

And it feels like I should still be in summer. This year has positively flown , I must be getting old.

 Only a bit of stitching to show from last time , both sign-ups for Love Quilts. The butterfly one only took a few days  .
 This one felt like it took forever . I have stitched it before , three years ago but will not stitch it again , the chart has been sent off to someone else to enjoy. I love the end result , but it was not worth the stress . I was beginning to think I might not make the deadline , thankfully that has never happened yet and I hope it never does ,I hate to let people down. This one nearly got the better of me though.
I literally had to force myself to pick it up. Once I did , it was ok but it was an effort every time. Strangely enough , as soon as it was finished I really wanted to stitch. I have started another dog for my son, and it is nice to pick it up when I want to rather than feel I have to.
 Speaking of my son, he came off his bike three weeks ago and broke his arm. Thankfully it is not a bad break , and all being well his cast will be off on Monday, but we had a rough couple of days.
 Not much else going off , I may not get much stitching done over the next few weeks . Half term holiday has just begun then beginning of next month I have jury duty.
 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

Both your Love Quilt pieces are fantastic Cath. I am so sorry to hear of your son's arm. I am glad children heal quickly though.

Glad to hear your son is not too badly hurt. I can imagine a few rough days. The stitched hearts are so pretty!

I am filled with awe at the lizard. It doesn't look the easiest stitch! Glad your son is in the mend. Good luck with the jury duty!

Ouchie, I hope your Son is OK and heals quickly. I love the pieces you've made but I can see how the second one would be hard work... lots of confetti and similar colours in there... congrats on the finishes!

Good luck with the jury service.
Hope you are having a nice half term and your sons injury is healing well.
Great stitching, well done on completing the lizard
