Let there be light

at the end of the tunnel! Boy has it been a long and tiring semester. But it's almost over (if you count 980 exam scripts to assess as almost over) an then I will have some head space.

In the meantime, I have been going very slowly, with a slight meandering into the knitting territory as it has been quite cold here.

Thanks to all those who gave me words of support for my Sue Spargo piece. I haven't been able to answer your emails, but I have read and taken them on board so much that I have not pulled it out and statred again.

So - this week the next installment of the BOM arrived

isn't it gorgeous? I'm really starting to chomp at the bit on this one. It is quite fun. I've done a little more on Block one. Not much, but the embroidery is FUN.

And I have been working on my lollipop trees. Block 3 finished

and Block 4 ready to go

I love the colours in this one. I do have a passion for red!

That's it for now. Hope to be around a bit more over the coming months. Tonight my goal is to finish Sallie Ann block 5. Wish me luck - and happy stitching to you all.
