Hi all, this is my first blog post! How exciting!
I've decided to set this blog up to document the progress of my various stitching works and as a bit of a diary as I go along. To start with, let me tell you a little about myself...
I am a full time student studying a degree in Psychology. It's really interesting but such hard work that I started cross-stitching earlier this year as a way to relax after a busy day studying. This year, from August, I will be doing a work placement in an emergency homeless shelter which I'm really looking forward to! One of my other pastimes that I love is reading but I haven't had much time to read for pleasure, what with all the studying I do. I'm looking forward to getting that time back to myself once I start at the shelter!
I have a golden Labrador called Cody, who is my baby. He is nearly 9 years old and a bundle of fun. No doubt you will see countless photos of him along the way... I have also just celebrated my 4th wedding anniversary with my darling husband Michael. I'm sure he'll get the odd mention along the way.
My current WIPs are a Boofle Wedding Sampler for my best friends wedding in July. I'm making fairly good progress with that but will enjoy it more once exams are finished I think. Also I have, on the side, a Flower Fairies Masterpiece that I'm doing for my mum who is fairy crazy. That one is pretty complicated though and is taking ages. I have a few other projects with deadlines that need doing first, will just have to fit in the odd bit of stitching here and there when I can with that one.Right, I'm signing off now. Happy stitching! ~Summer
