WIP Update – CHS and AMAP

Another month gone! How come time’s passes so fast when I’m on my year’s break? Not fair – it never happens like that when I’m at work! On the stitching front, I haven’t done a whole lot this past month, mainly because I’ve been attending to my Mum, who’s been quite unwell these past 3 weeks. It started with extreme nausea/vertigo which landed us at the hospital emergency and which turned out to be a middle ear disorder. On top of that Mum had to fast for three days in preparation for a colonoscopy. This proved too much for the 74year old, and she collapsed – another rush to emergency. Happy and relieved to report that she’s on the mend now. I was going to travel back to Ghana with her on 29 March, but we’ve had to postpone our trip to mid-April. 

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to:

a) progress on Virtue Sampler Series, CHS – I’m stitching Love, Faith, Hope and Charity together

b) started the Stitcher’s Heart, AMAP to add to my redwork collection

Sorry about the dark pictures – it’s raining here in Perth today. First signs of transition into autumn…

c) finished my Fair & Square exchange piece for my Partner Christine R – but can’t reveal anything yet.

I’ve also created a separate page for the F&S exchange – click on the tab at the top of this page to get there.

Happy stitching 😉
