Its Friday YIPPEEEEE!


Well, today its Friday and although I normally get excited at the prospect of a Weekend ahead, this week is particularly special. I am currently studying for a postgraduate (MSc) in Information Management at Brunel University, West London and today was exam day (4 hours in total)... so you can imagine the stress in our house this week. My DH has been really great, giving me lots of encouragement, but I still get the jitters before the day. Anyway it all worked out OK, the exams went without a hitch and I think I managed to write enough down! All the time I have been dreaming of having lots of time over Christmas to do crafts and relax with DH who has been used to me spending hours typing away on the computer, writing up assignments and so forth since Sept - so now its time to relax!!

Anyway this is just a short message because we are going out for a meal tonight to celebrate my freedom so will sign off now.

PS Do you like my Lavender Sampler shown above? I really love the flower, the smell the colour and everything to do with Lavender!

So I'm the 3rd to comment. Welcome to the blogging world Ali and please show all the lovely stitchings that you have done. Can't get enough of your lavender sampler. They are really pretty. (Hmmm I've never seen real lavender in Singapore but I know they smell lovely and intoxicating.)

Hi Ali, found your link on San's blog. Your lavender sampler is adorable. It has a nice subtle scent, very soothing.

Congratulations on your exams going smoothly, Ali! Now you'll have such a great Holiday time!

Your Lavender Sampler is stunning!! It is so delicate and, oh those colours!

As you may remmeber, I love lavender as well (although it is not my fetish flower like it is for you! That is your special touch!). I have a little bottle of lavender essential oils by my bedside, when I'm a bit nervous I put some on my pillow to help me go to sleep... ;o)

Hope you have a wonderful, restful, crafty day today! I sure will (I've decided not to work this w-e!)

I loved the pictures in your last post of the Powel designs. I also love your lavender sampler. Hope to see more of your work.

Hi! Welcome to this great fellow stitching bloggers' world! It was time: San speaking about you so often made us feel like getting to know you!
Your lavender looks just gorgeous. Isn't this a DMC project?
Off to your next posts... You're very creative on this side too! We seem to enjoy the same colours as we have chosen the same template...
Take care!
