Stitching progress

Living with Charm

Here is a picture of my Living with Charm so far this week. I couldn't get the camera to download so I've had to use the scanner on the printer.
I've been able to stitch for an hour or two every night this week. Heaven after the last two weeks of school/ballet when I had something to go to almost every night.
I can only stitch at night because it is too hot during the day - up to 34C this week.

An artist in the family
My dd entered a competition a few weeks ago run by the local shopping centre to design a christmas banner. She was awarded a highly commended and won $50! I'm going to take her to the bigger shopping centre where she can spend up at the smiggle shop. She's 8.
Weekend away
DH and I went to Lennox Head in northern NSW last weekend. It was for a Christmas party for the car club we belong to. The theme was Pirates and Wenches! Everyone had a great time and it was nice to get away without kids (with 40+ other car club members) We had to cancel our holiday in September when DH had to go to the USA for a work meeting.
