Finally a finish...and a flying start!

After two weeks away from work & my usual level of activity, I am now feeling well again. Sadly with all that time at home little sewing was done except for my cross stitch. I had only stitched the first line of the verse so decided it needed to be finished rather than looking eerily prophetic! So here is my interpretation of Jenny Beans Halloween on 40ct Flax with GA threads. 
I am preparing for a stitching weekend...great company, lots of stitching and sounds like some yummy treats... must remember to pack my joggers for some serious walking! I am preparing my projects...this is a trial block of one of them...why oh why did I pick a project with 144 flying geese???? 
I think the block looks great though.
Technical issues have also been troublesome... Blogger not letting me leave comments and Skype malfunctioning...hard to keep in touch with travelling loved ones! Oh for tech support!

So glad you are feeling better, lovely to see what you are working on, have fun packing!! I don't think you are the only one having trouble with blogger at the moment!! xo

Glad you are feeling better. I think that I would have felt even worse being in the house and not wanting or being able to sew. Glad you are getting back into the swing of things. They are great projects.

Enjoy sewing all those geese, love the colour combo, can't say anything about the geese though they always look good when done.
Enjoy your stitchy weekend in good company.
