SAL update

Ryan; nap time but too tired to go lay down on the bed

ILCS - Part 1 of the SAL

I'm 99.9% done with the first part of the ILCS Halloween SAL. I only need to add the three (or was it four) french knots. I do hate them little buggers but I did find a instruction blog that makes it very easy to do. I just have to find it again!! I have saved so many different blogs and cross stitch sites to my favorites that now I have to organize them.

I haven't done any stitching in a few days and it doesn't look like I will be getting to do much anytime soon. All the kids are sick with the head/chest cold. Marie started sneezing on Sunday but I thought it was just allergies. Ryan and Logan woke up with it Monday in their chest to where they sounded like a frog every time they coughed. Katie woke up with it today and between all of their sneezing and coughing in my face, I've now caught it too. No one is running a fever thankfully and the two oldest are feeling well enough to go to school today so at least I will only have the two littlest ones. Now if I can just get them to want to play instead of climb up in my lap all day I might get something accomplished.

Your stitching is coming along nicely. I have to laugh at that picture of Ryan! Too funny

Oh dear, I do sympathize with you coping with your children's coughs and sneezes. I am glad that the oldest ones are better. Your SAL looks great. The French Knots (which I hate too!) are not too bad, at least there are only 3.

Nice stitching! I have seen several of these progressing now!

The SAL looks great.

Hope the kiddies are all better soon and you can get some stitching done. Just hold and cuddle them now while they are little, they grow so fast

your SAL looks great. Good luck on the French Knots, mine were a bit uncooperative too :-(

Great stitching. And hopefully your kids (and you) will feel better soon.

You've done well to get so far on the SAL when children are ill!
