Haven’t been posting due to spending time with the Dragon (aka Mum) – she arrived bright and early on Thursday morning, and I ended up with both Fraze and Mum as visitors that night … Mum crashed out early on the sofa, while Fraze and I howled out loud watching Chris Rock’s HBO special on DVD, and having a few bevvies. Friday morning I woke up with a painful headache, mainly because Fraze and I woke up with the teeming rain at about 4.30am – and got up to chat for a while with Mum. At about 5.30am I hit the hay for another hour, then Fraze had to go to work while Mum and I spent the day out shopping at Queen Victoria markets until about 3pm … after a sushi ‘lunch’ I crashed out badly until 7pm, managed to stay awake for another 2 hours, then hit the hay yet again until 4am before work! So, all-in-all, no great stitching progress made …
The good news, though, is that I finally finished my gift piece … not quite how I intended it to look – I was whip-stitching the edges with beads, but the shade of the beads didn’t really suit it, so a-frogging I went … I ended up just leaving the whip-stitching plain, and got it finished and stuffed tonight. That means I can finally get it in the post tomorrow – yippee!!!
That now means that I can resume scheduled programming, aka my rotation … so the Dratteds are back on the floorstand, and ready for their 10 hours worth. I’m on 5am’s all week, so that’s a good one to get stitching done. It also means I should be able to get back to blogging again – can’t wait to see what everyone’s been up to 🙂

It seems you had some busy days 🙂 but hopefully a lot of fun as well. I’m glad you’re back to normality ’cause I really missed you blogging :-)))
Can’t wait to see your gift piece.
Is ‘dragon’ sort of an affectionate nickname for your mom? Sounds like busy, good days – take care and enjoy!
I’ve missed you the last few days, Anne, but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes 🙂 Glad you had such lovely visits
Nice to see you, Anne! I haven’t had time to blog much either. Tell you mum I said hi! 🙂
