Proud and happy

Happy days will come ahead of me . Yes .... I am going to have my both children home for Christmas.
I am one happy mama 😃😄😄
In the summer my daughter decided she will follow her boyfriend to London and will leave there for two / three years . He is doing a master or specialize in some sort of physiotherapy and she will continue her work as makeup artist with Lancome .
My soon in other hand is gone to Sweden for one year in the student exchange program. He seems to can't wait to get back home. Is good to be on your own but is better when mum is doing laundry, cleaning and food sometime 😂

 Here is at my son's secondary school graduation. A very proud sister as you can see and a very serious boy thinking to the hard life (not yet ) which is waiting him .

 Very proud family ....

 He is probably thinking :""hmmm... here I come speeding from the back""
Yes .... I am very guilty , been the most proud mama and I am still proud of two good children which beat all the odds of coming in a strange country with no language skills and no help.
There I am more proud of my husband which manage at his age to get a college done and a master in internet security and this year he finally manage to land the job of his dreams in Bank of Ireland and this in the top of my the stress generated by sickness.

You have a happy stitching there and I send you lots of hugs and good health wishes

I find it hard to get back on writing blogs.
I don't know way , just don't find words so more important like before. I use to pay attention to each word I speak and to try to communicate my ideas the clearest possible.
Now I think an picture is saying everything for  people which want to hear 😊
This weekend I have done few pictures of my work from Royal School of Needlework and got a bit of nostalgia for the days when I was running around like a headless chicken 😅😅.
 The crewel embroidery which I so hated at the start of the school become some sort of speciality for me now . Love to do a piece for the diversity of the stitches and for the speed you can have in finishing a piece.
 Gold work embroidery is the reason way I decide to do the RSN in first instance but I don't know way I start few more pieces but never manage to finish them .

With silkshading it was same as goldwork 😏, love the technique but never manage to finish another piece , thought I have one in the frame .
This is the blackwork piece which actually make me cry , NO , I am serious , physically cry . I start practising on the piece below so when I choose the little rabbit I thought all will go smooth and easy Do you think RSN is going to leave anything to be easy? Nope .....
All that stress added with a full time job and teaching classes and a participation at the K&S brought me on the brink of dead.
Now we are going to delete all this year and get a new piece of calico and start from scratch again 😅😅😅
