An update

I am feeling a little better so thought I'd do a quick update about what I have been up to recently. First off here is my June SAL of Twilight Shimmer. Still not got this page finished. I think the prob is that I didnt kit it up properly with all the threads right at the outset so keep finding threads I'm missing - doh!! Will definitely do better next month. Sorry its a bit of a blur.
June sal after

Stitching wise I seem to have lost my mojo a bit. I think what with all the morning sickness and tiredness and not being able to concentrate for long has had an impact on my stitching. Also I think not coming on and reading and being inspired by all your blogs doesnt help either. Just from the few I have been on today has already helped me feel a tad more motivated. Just as well as I got the second Loose feathers today "Awake the Dawning Day". So I am slowly building up some stash but when oh when will I ever get to do it? and how do I choose which to start first? Also I am thinking about a birth sampler but none really appeal to me.

This last week has seen us away a lot. Last weekend we were at our church leaders retreat away at the Lake District. This place is becoming like a second home to us!! We are due to go up again in August. Then on Tuesday we went to Paris and took our dd to Disneyland. Here are a few pics.

We had a good time but it was very tiring and I am glad to be home even if the cat did poo in the kitchen as a welcome back gift!!!!!!!
Thanks for reading and bearing with me. xx

Glad your feeling just a bit better. Morning sickness is the worst! I was one of the unlucky ones and had it the whole time I was pregnant....3 times!!

Twilight Shimmer is looking lovely, nice progress. Also, your trip pictures are fun, looks like you all had a great time.

Hope you start feeling better soon, morning sickness is such a pain, it just seems to wipe you out for the whole day sometimes.

Hazel, I just read your good news and am so happy for you! I always had morning sickness too, and usually lost several pounds early on.

Looks like you had a marvelous vacation!
