And Back to the Cross-Stitch

After my grand plans at the start of the holidays to get through lots of projects, I only finished one and managed to add one to my pile!

This second week of the holidays saw me in school for 3 days helping students revise, and lots of socialisation with people (which was lovely). I even managed to get to the cinema to see Beauty and the Beast - which wasn't bad at all!

As I was busy most days, I ended up just cross-stitching in the evenings. The photos below are yesterdays progress (there is more off the hoop, but I didn't move it as both times I took a picture I was halfway through some stitching). Seeing lots of gaps filling now!

 

I also managed to try a new recipe - lemon and blueberry skinny muffins. Very tasty (according to the husband and his friend). Just need to refine my icing skills!


I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend.

Great work on Beauty & the Beast, you can really see the picture coming together.
Congratulations on passing the driving test too, so much freedom!

Thank you - it really was. I felt so rested by the end of the holidays! x

It really was! I don't bake often but I may have to make it a more regular hobby! x

Thank you - I'm finding it useful to take progress photos for here as staring at it doesn't seem to show as much progress! Thank you twice - I'm very excited to get a car now; the idea of freedom is so great! x

A Little Bit of Crafting

Alongside the early nights and theatre trips I mentioned in my previous post, I have actually managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting...
