Afternoon bloggers !
As the title suggests a week and a lot of difference not only have we gone from summer warm sunshine to rain rain and more rain but where I was lamenting only managing just over 10 hours a week stitching I got in over 20 this week.
That is due in part to 1. having the rain and 2. the children had an unexpected mid term break.
At this time of year we normally only have the bank holiday (yesterday) off but last Thursday we had a vote so the school was closed as its the polling station and then with the Monday off the school decided go give us the Friday so we relaxed and enjoyed the time off. We unfortunately didn’t have much weather with yesterday showing a few snatched dry hours in order to get outside.
So here’s how the stitching went.
I was finishing up the rotation on the Gorjuss kit that you saw last week so this is where it stands now.

This is now back on the stand for another rotation again this week. Elizabeth’s birthday is the 26th and it needs finishing and framing by then !
You remember last week I was debating what to do over my dads present, his birthday is the 23rd, the same days as Caoimhe and I’m not going to get the fishing picture done on time so I set it aside for the moment, had a root around in my stash and found a silhouette picture of a fisherman and I’ve started this. Its smaller in size so here’s hoping I can get it done on time.
Here is where it is after its first rotation last week.
On Thursdays I have a SAL going with Linda over at Stitchin with my Furbabies . We are currently working on LHN’s The Old West and this is where mine finished up last Thursday.

This week I’m hoping to get more done on Gorjuss and Silhouette in a bid to get them done on time and then move onto my photo stitch and Hogwarts Crest later in the month.
I was asked a week ago how you pronounce Caoimhe’s name, I’m sorry I just remembered it now.
We pronounce it Key Va , here in Ireland there is another way to pronounce it and depends on what part of the country you learned Irish in as there are slight different pronouncements. Her name is the Irish female form of Kevin and means beauty. Irish names all have wonderful meanings. Ruairí is pronounced Roo Ree and means Red King and is the Irish of Rory.
Now remember I said it was raining, well Elizabeth yesterday in the few short hours it stopped raining donned her boots and went outside to jump up and down in muddy puddles ! She is a water baby through and through and loves nothing more that to be playing with it so both eyes are needed on her !

That’s it all for this week, hoping to catch up with you all over a cup of tea to see what you have been doing.
