A Picture of a Nun.....So Far


I finally set my mind to finishing off part 2 of the nun (aka Convent's Herbal Garden by Chatelaine) and, of course, it really didn't take that long. Matters were helped by Caitlin going to a friend's house this afternoon. Here is a (not very good) picture of my progress so far........

I am taking a break from this now, and am working on setting up a rotation (again! lol). I also want to start a new HAED. Yes, I know, another one.........but this one is special. My good buddy Annette has recently started this one, and I want to do a SAL with her as she gets through her chemo, and other various treatments and struggles to beat her breast cancer. Besides, it will be relatively small, as I am not stitching the background, and only has 50 colours, and I am so looking forward to stitching something that looks like something and isn't just background.

School holidays have been pretty good so far this week-it was hot today (well 30C seems hot at the moment) and it is supposed to be hot again tomorrow. Bushfires are a big threat this summer year-restrictions will start early this year because of the bad conditions. With so little rain, things are already drying out, and today was the second total fire ban here. Apparently there was a fire not too far from here, and lots of others around the state. Well, have to go throw some food together, and gather up my supplies for my new project (Babysitting-HAED/Ravenscroft).

Your Nun is spectacular Leonie. It has almost made me want to crack mine out! Hope the fires stay away from you...I hate summer in Australia for that very reason
