A stitching finish-with a picture

After my last update with lack of pictures and Nichola saying she wished to see them here is my latest finish:

This was a class piece by Judy Dixon which I attended with Gina and although a while ago now I remember it was a really great day. I am seriously considering finding a floss box to mount this in as I love this design and it is also the first Hardanger I have done with little easy to sort out mistakes.
Life carries on quite normally here really but although my next OU course doesn't officially start until the end of the month I have made a start today. This is so that I can hopefully keep slightly ahead and also because we don't have even one month from the start date until the first assignment is due-no pressure or sense of easing us in gently then is there? What I did today made sense and I enjoyed it so that is a good start I would think.
All being well me and mum are going to the Knitting and Stitching show at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday. It is quite some time since I went to a major show but I am trying not too get really excited about it as I know my health could prevent it right up until the last minute. That is one of the major things which gets to me about my illness as although I enjoy life and try and embrace it I can't allow real excitement even about the immediate future just in case it doesn't work out. But then sometimes excitement leads to disappointment so taking as it comes is not always a bad thing but hoping fervantly this is going to be a great weekend.

That's really lovely Michelle. Hope you managed to get to the NEC with your mum. I've been trying to catch up with blogs, so I was really sorry to hear about Taffy {{{hugs}}}.
