I'm back but with not much stitching to show for the last two weeks...

Hello dear readers

As the title says, not much of a stitching update this time.  We have been on holiday for two weeks to Ibiza.  A beautiful island that both hubby and I have visited before but never together as a family.  It's been a relaxing time with lots of splashing and swimming, good food and drink, dancing and fun, and no smartphones, iPads etc!  I'm still catching up on blog reading to see what I've missed.

I took one of my Crazy January Challenge pieces to stitch on in the evenings but truly was too busy to put many stitches in it.  The boys (aged 6 and 4 now) stayed up late with us playing with friends they made on holiday so there wasn't the opportunity this holiday.  I'm ready to get back to it now though.

Here's my progress to date:



And here's how it will look when finished:

I see I have gained a few new followers while I've been away.  Welcome and hope you enjoy my blog.  There is usually a bit more going on here than there has been recently and I hope to have a finish or two to share with you soon.

Until next time
