May Wipocalypse - another Finish - Miracle!!!!!!!!

I have been a bit reclusive for a while now - no particular reason - just pulled my head down below the lip of the foxhole of life I suppose.  I have been sewing and reading and that is about it.  I find if I start looking at the web, nothing gets done....but having said that I have discovered Goodreads which is rather like blogs and Ravelry and the web generally - once you start you can't stop.

My middle son - who up till now has been the quiet achiever - is in his last year of school and seems to be a bit lost in the wilderness of the adult world.  He seems to have no idea where he is going to go, or what he is going to do.  He has the brains to do pretty much anything he likes, but his degree of application seems to be negligible at the moment -  in the last year of school, when he needs to apply himself the most. He keeps telling me "It will be alright Mum!".  He is a bit of a last minute type of kid, who seems to need that adrenalin rush of knowing that the assignment is due to two days to get moving on the writing of it.  The complete opposite of me, who needs to worry and research for ages to get anything done.....Oh Well, fingers crossed!!

But in the midst of all that I have finished something - again another relatively small thing.....BUT......and done some more on Golden Wood.  See...............................







You can actually see a suggestion of the other ladies who are lurking in Golden Wood there among the trees.  The only problem is that when all the black is done there is nothing but yellow confetti stitches.  That will keep me busy and my mind occupied!!

    1. Thank you.......the rational part of my brain knows that he will work it out but the worrying mother part of my brain wants to scream and take him by the throat!!!! Probably best that I concentrate on the stitching!!

    1. Thank you - I really should stick to small projects because they are ones that I can realistically finish....but then I look at Heaven & Earth Designs...and well.....you know what I'm saying.
