The Best Laid Plans…

My slow stitching plans for the week didn’t really get off the ground. Instead, I have spent my time looking after a poorly 10 year old boy. Thankfully, he’s starting to feel better now. As always, when someone in the house is ill, we took the opportunity to watch The Princess Bride.

It’s always good for taking your mind off things 🙂

At least I did manage to finish off this star. It’s number 33. Maybe today, I will even find time to press it and take the middle papers out haha!

hexagon star number 33

Do pop over to Kathy’s Quilts and see what other slow stitchers are up to this week.

    I’m sorry your boy was poorly, glad he’s on the mend. These things do take up a lot of time, don’t they? Still, your star is so pretty it deserves its own post anyway.
