Hi there,

May 1st already this year is flying past!

It doesn't seem like I got much done this week but it has all been hand work and slow work!

My son started a new shift at work so he is in the house now until 11.30 am so my working schedule is all messed up. I will have to get in the swing of things soon.   Lets see this week I made my Ranchers Daughter block from last week .

Made my SAL block for May

worked on my April cross stitch SAL

got a picture for  an xmas gift put on material for embroidery and onto a hoop. I did  get the house cleaned and the wash all done already so I am ahead on that. Yesterday I  finished pinning the rest of  Forget Me Knots fancy work  have the name plates embroidered just have to sew them on. Hope ot have it all done by the next  WIP  so here's hoping.

Out telephone is not working right now so have a repair man coming today to fix the problem.  My Grandmother in Scotland is having fits as she can't just pick up the phone and talk right now. she is  96 yrs old and not able to walk anymore so she sits with a phone at her side and when she gets lonely she calls just to hear a voice. I have been calling her on my cell phone a few times a day but she won't believe me that it doesn't cost too much and won't stay talking!!

Well I will go now and get some more rest before the repair man gets here.
Have a great week everyone!!
