Where does all the time go? Looking at my last post it has clearly been a little while since I last blogged but the time has gone by so quickly.

Steph is still suffering with her headaches and has been prescribed Beta Blockers and pain killers.

The baby is due a week tomorrow, Anthony is so excited and Nicki is huge and fed up.

Last week was the start of a new term and the first meeting of Spectrum. I had a lovely day. We spent time having a catch up with a show and tell, it was nice to see what everyone had been up to. There was certainly a lot of nice work and some wonderful sketchbooks. I spent the afternoon having a go at Mono Printing and I really enjoyed it, I'll show you the results another time.

I handed in the two squares I'd done during the summer break. I really like this turquoise one and I'm going to make a hanging based on it. The picture doesn't show it at its best, I think there's too much light and you can't see the stitch detail or the beads.

This is my blue one, strips of fabric laid down and some hand embroidery. I used just one stitch (fly stitch) and various thicknesses of thread. It's not one of my favourites.

Now all that's left to do is a purple and a pink square, think I'll go and make a start.

Hope the latest treatment helps Steph's headaches. Can't believe you will be a grandmother the next time I see you! (You are so much younger than me!)

Oh I am sorry I missed this post - the squares are really good and the one for next month is looking good already.
