Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow

I have really been AWOL lately......Have been too busy to stitch a real lot as I've been concentrating on losing some weight, working and looking after my family. I have lost 12 kilos which is 26.4 pounds. I have been at the gym everyday after work and then walking in the evening. Anyway, I have slowed down on the walking in the evening and have picked up my stitching. I have completed one square
My eldest daughter has had quite a traumatic experience. Her boyfriend of 2 years is on exchange in Sth Africa and a week after he left, broke up with her. He comes back to Australia on Sunday. She is really scared to see him. Mind you, she has a new boyfriend, who happens to be one of his friends, so it will be interesting come Monday at school
