I am Half Sick of Shadows

Half Sick of Shadows May update

Here is my latest update of this bap wip I'm doing. It's got lots of confetti in it at the moment with all those tiny circular windows. Im about half the page down on this little bit. Will have to put it away for a bit as it's the HAED SAL this weekend so I'll be working on my Twilight Shimmer. So so hoping that we will get a bit of shimmer on her this weekend. There is definitely some confetti coming up so hoping for an interesting bit to be able to show on Tuesday.

I am so proud of my dd! I have been reading Dr Suess Green Eggs and Ham with her and she is really getting it!! I mean she is really starting to read it on her own! They are such brilliant books. I would recommend them to anyone with preschool kids. I want to run in the playgroup and show her teachers but then I think "Na cos she probably will forget and then I'll look a right idiot!!" It is enough for me to know she is doing well.

Well I don't think I'll be starting A Most Noble Pursuit now till June so that will not be one of my new starts this month. Maybe I won't have one. Mmmmm. I still have the first Loose Feathers club one and also the second is due any day soon apparently! I have seen a lot of pretty little makes that I would quite like to do. I fancy making a needle book or something similar so I may have a go at one of those. My Cheryl's bouquet is being made into a cushion as we speak and I also forgot to mention my beautiful Rapunzel cushion frill started coming away from the stitching as the fabric just doesnt work!! So she has kindly agreed to fix it free of charge with another frill. Should have those back soon. I sent a picture of Cheryl's Bouquet to Marc from Needlemania who said he is going to put it in his Gallery!!! I will have to resend another when it has been made up.

Thank you all so much for reading and taking time to reply. I appreciate all the lovely, kind comments so much. They mean a great deal to me. And I know how hard it is to get time to reply - I have been struggling myself to catch up with everyone. Have a wonderful weekend however you spend it.

Oh my goodness Hazel - this is beautiful!! Do you mean to tell me you are doing two of these types of projects at once. WOW is all I can say.

My friend Brenda & I both started Cheryl's Bouquet this past week. We had originally planned to make it into a bourse but now like your idea of a pillow much better. I'm looking forward to seeing your's all made up.

Wonderful that Lily is catching on to reading so well. The love of books is such a great gift.

Thank you for your compliments on Avril. I'm not quite sure how I will finish it/them - perhaps little pillows - but I have been getting some ideas on Cote Passions
