Stitch From Stash Update: May

Wow, I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted. The past fortnight has flown by. I've been out celebrating my finished degree by eating meals out with friends, going on day trips with Lawrence and attending lots of parties! I've had such so much fun, but now it's time to re-focus and get my head in order. Now the real adventure begins :)

Today I'm here for another SFS update. I haven't needed to spend any money again this month. Only one project has got my full attention at the moment, and at the rate its going, I don't think it will take me long to finish it. Here's where I'm at with White Magic . . .

I hope to catch up on my blog reading in the next few days, I can't wait to see what everyone has been working on. I'm sorry for my lack of consistency, it appears I've lost a couple of followers due to lack of updates. I'm afraid I can't make promises, I just post when I can and when I have something worth sharing :)
Best wishes to all,

The End is Nigh

Hello friends! I left it longer than I meant to from my last post. But I'm here now for a jolly good catch up :)

I have now handed in my final assignments for University. So technically, I'm all done, although I won't officially finish until the end of term in June. It's a weird sensation to have finished with University. Of course I will be sad to leave, but I'm so looking forward to the next chapter. I'm currently applying for jobs in this area and flat-hunting as well. I'm also spending these last few weeks socialising a lot and making sure I spend as much time as possible with my Uni friends. 
I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments and emails regarding my life at Uni. You're all so generous thinking of me and wishing me well. I've been blogging for so long, I remember telling you all about results day and getting into Winchester in the first place! Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me, your encouragement means a lot :)
As a treat to myself for finishing all of my assignments, I bought an official Winchester hoody to commemorate my time here. It's really cosy!

Time for a stitching update! The only thing I've been working on recently is White Magic. I can't seem to put it down :) I have got a bit more time on my hands now to work on other projects too, but I'll just share a pic of my lovely wolves today . . .

I'm onto the third section, with only one quarter to go after that. And then it will be time to tackle all the backstitching! I think this piece will look great when it's all finished up :) You know I'll have framed pieces all over my new flat when I settle in. Hopefully, that won't be too far off in the future :)
Best wishes to all,
