    Congratulations on reaching your milestone, Robert! The rest of your window stitching will get smaller and smaller, and it's looking lovely I might add.

    Yes Chris and Abi, it's been quiet here - that's one thing that I miss when we have extended SAL's. We were out of town for a couple of days to Peter's family lobster party. it was a good time, but the drive home wasn't. It's normally a three-hour drive, but there was road work going on and our three hours became five with all of the delays. We're back home now and I'll get to stitch again once supper is finished!

    Well done Robert on reaching your milestone and good luck for the next one

    Abi, I never thought I would hear myself saying that it is too hot..... it has to be an age thing as I used to be in the garden from breakfast till evening when my boys were little and it ever bothered me but now even on holiday I have to have shade most of the day - good job I tan but just looking at the sun lol x I have managed some stitching though but have all doors and windows open and keep going for walk in the garden lol x

    Well, I've called a halt to Magical Arrival Storykeep for this rotation. I finished up with 6,166 of the 23,775 stitches complete, so I did make my milestone of 25% completion. I actually finished at 25.93% complete. So now it goes into storage and Night Cafe comes back out. I'll start work on it tomorrow. I think it will feel like a vacation moving from 32 count 1 x 1 to 25 count 2 x 1! Here's the pictures of my progress over the course of the challenge.

    What beautiful progress you've made on the left side, Debbie! That whole leaf has appeared out of nowhere, in addition to lots more red to give you a break from the greens. I am anticipating watching your Night Cafe grow once more - I love that one!

    Chris I'm exactly the same these days, breathing and hot weather for me don't go well

    Robert you made lovely progress and it looks great, well done

    Well I managed to stitch a bit at the start of the sal but then I got a chest infection and what with the antibiotics steroids and the sun it didnt grow very quickly at all I'm feeling loads better today (and able to breath) so here's hoping for more progress during next sal.

    Gorgeous progress Chris! You've got to the end of the row quite a way down the page and you are rightly pleased with yourself. The end is in sight!

    Abi, I hope you are feeling better now. It looks like you've still managed to get a lot of sky done, and a bit of a tree. That's too bad, now that your hand is feeling somewhat better your chest starts acting up.

    It is soooo hot here, too. We have a warm, humid air mass stalled over the area. Right now at 8:00 pm it is 31 c. with a humidex of 41, and there will be no change for the next three or four days.

    Here's my progress on David. The odd looking area just to the right of his elbow is the rope (or whatever) holding his bag of rocks. It will show up better before too long (I hope!).
