A little progress to report

But only a very little! As I've been recovering from some odd virus over the weekend, I haven't really been up to stitching much, so I've only done the second row of Kloster blocks in the big central diamond, the 4 eyelets in the smaller diamonds and then finished off the piece of #5 pearl cotton I'd been using by starting on some of the inner line of the border work. Anyway, I think I'm free of the bug now, just totally exhasuted, so I'll have to be careful, but can still do stuff. I've set my mobile phone alarm for 10pm every day as a 'Go to bed' reminder!!

Elizabeth, sorry to hear you have not been so well. Hope the virus is clearing up nicely.
Good luck with the job hunt, I am sure you will find something soon.

Great progress Elizabeth! Sorry to hear you've been under the weather. Summer colds are never fun. It's a beautiful cushion you're working on, a wonderful present.

Good luck with the job hunting. I've been applying for some grown up jobs (as opposed to poverty-level casual student jobs) lately, and it's just a minefield. Thanks for posting the links, they're great resources.

Sending you positive vibes across the pond so that you'll be feeling better soon and that job will land in your lap. Nothing like a prescription of stitching to get you on the right track, I'm thinking...
