An Update on Life

Poppies is still coming along, although a little slower than I expected . . . more left than I thought, the backgrounds taking a bit of time and there's still the backstitch to go. Still pretty good though considering how busy I've been. I have one and a half weeks of my second year of university to go! I can't believe it's gone so quickly. In the last month or so not only have I been swamped in assignments, but trying to find a summer job, a flat and numerous other things. Most of which is now sorted. One assignment to go and a flatmate to find and my life will be (relatively) stress free. I have a new lovely flat with ironically what will be far more crafting space in a far smaller house, and I'm working for a big chain store in my hometown for the summer. 

I'll finish off with just some recent likes I thought I'd share:

4 good quality glass canisters I picked up for a song off a deal-a-day site. Might seem perfectly normal but to someone as limited in terms of kitchenware as I am they're pretty amazing and mean I will no longer spill things everywhere whenever I want a snack. Can't wait for them to arrive! 

Delish is a free online magazine for women I recently stumbled upon . . . . it's beautifully laid out and has articles that actually mean something instead of just celebrity gossip and fashion pages. I love it! You can find it at http://delishmag.com/ 

You may have noticed the wee bookshelf now down my sidebar. I love to read and having been keeping a reading record for nearly 3 years now. I've just switched to a new online record keeper, one that lets me put a widget on here. So now I can showcase what I'm reading as well as what I'm crafting!

One final like. My man is a plastics engineer in training and has just offered to make me embroidery hoops from scratch. How cool is that?! Cool that he can and cool that he would :P

That's all for now (but expect the finished poppies soon)
