Pretty Stitching & Pretty Dresses

Hello everyone! I am certainly enjoying all this free time summer has given me, I'm managing to sit down and stitch a lot more. The only problem is I've come down with a rotten cold, but I am grateful that it struck after Summer Ball (more on that later). So here's my progress on Charizard . . .



As mentioned in my last post, I'm stitching this for my boyfriend who's a huge Pokemon fan. I'm not letting him see it till it's all finished though, he'll have to wait and see.
In other news, Summer Ball was on Monday evening and I enjoyed a wonderful night. Everybody was all dressed up, including the teachers, and I managed to take quite a few pictures. Feel free to skip the rest of this post, it's all about ball from now on!
Here's the nicest picture I could find of me and the boyfriend together, we didn't realised we matched in black and white till we got there. Now that's fate for you :)



This was the best picture to show off my lovely dress - sorry I've got my eyes closed. The purple shoes were a bargain at half price. I walked out of the shop a very happy customer after I had found them.



Here's a couple of other pictures from ball, just to show off all the other beautiful dresses and suits that were present.









I've got another party at the end of the week and then out for a picnic at the weekend. Next week, I've been lucky enough to receive some overtime at work so that will keep me busy. I'm sure I'll make time for stitching though.
Hope you're all well,

Looks like you had a grand time with your friends. Hope you get over this cold so you can enjoy the rest of your summer!

Thank you for sharing your photos from the ball, Bekca--you and your boyfriend are such a darling couple. You know how you can sometimes just tell by looking at a photo that the people in it are truly kind and good human beings--well, you both have that look :)

Love your dress and wow on the purple shoes!

Hope you feel better soon so you can get back to finishing up the Charizard for you boyfriend...
