SAL update – time flies

It is true, time flies. I cannot believe it is time for a SAL update again!! The good thing is that school closed Friday for a two-week holiday and I am so happy about it. To me it means sleeping in and doing whatever I feel like for the next two weeks. Mollie must go to the vet to be spayed and microchipped Monday morning and Thursday I have a workshop with Mark Gee, for astrophotography. His photos are simply beautiful and I cannot wait for this hands-on workshop, after trying to get a place in one of his workshops for quite a few years – the tickets sell out within hours and I have always been too late. But this time it is my turn!!!! I am also thinking of going on a road-trip. It is called the Forgotten Highway and it looks like a potential fun trip

I haven’t done much needlework the past few weeks, since the last update, except working on the black cross-stitch project. I have finished all the embroidery and now just have to finish it off. But as I said in my last update, I am not very fond of this piece I have done and still trying to work out how what to do with it, and how to finish it off. If I liked it enough I could have made a wall-hanging, but I still don’t. This might go into a drawer to be gifted to the right person at some stage. Or I might add a fabric border and backing and use it on the coffee-table, I really have not decided yet.

This is where I was with the last update (first photo) and where I am now (second photo):
