A New Summer Project

Hi all! I know there's a lot of bloggers out there that have been suffering with some very hot weather recently. Even the UK got hit with a blast of good weather. The sunshine filled, blue sky days are always appreciated though, it makes a nice change to the cloudy skies we normally get. Stay cool my friends!
In stitching news, I have a new start to share. This pattern, All Things Bright and Beautiful by Lizzie Kate was part of the wonderful package of stitching goodies Terri sent me. I have finally managed to make a start, after completing a couple of other project first to make room. Here's my progress so far . . .

 

And a little close up pic of what I've done . . .



I am so enjoying this design all ready. I'm stitching it on 32ct Belfast Linen in Vintage Beige with all the recommended DMC threads, although I might swap a few round if they don't quite suit. This is what I'll be stitching on today as part of the LK SAL from the Lizzie Kate Lovers blog.
My first exchange is starting soon and I can't wait to begin! I've been eyeing up Prairie Schooler patterns that I like the look of, and you know other bits and pieces will just fall into my cart when I order them :)
It's less than two weeks to go till results day and I'm already nervous. I think I've done enough to get into my chosen Uni, but you never can really tell. I'll make sure I post about how I do!
I hope you're all enjoying a gorgeous summer with lots of strawberries, ice cream and stitching.
Best wishes,

Good luck with your results. I'll say a little prayer that all goes well and you get into the university of your choice.

Fingers crossed you get into your chosen university :))

Your little LK is so cute--nice choice of fabric, too!!

That is a really cute L*K chart - can't wait to watch it grow.

Good luck for good news - sounds like it will be just that!

Bekca, I'm so very sorry to hear of your great aunt's passing! Your poor Mum - so sorry for her to lose a dear one!

Your Pokemon piece turned out beautifully for your boyfriend! He will treasure it on a pillow. Be sure to show that as well.

I've done several exchanges, and they are so much fun, but I'm always nervous about shortchanging someone. I also once got nothing in return, so that was hurtful!

The Lizzie Kate design is adorable, and you've got a great start on it. Are you thinking about going back to school yet? Yikes! Where has the summer gone?
