Mystery Sampler, Crochet and a little bit of cha cha cha!!!!

Well things are starting to become 'normal' again. A big thank you to everyone for their prayers and wishes for a good recovery for my future daughter in law. She came out of the hospital a week ago, it's going to be very small steps but I'm sure with a little help with things from the family she will get well.
Not a lot of stitching as been done of late, I tried but when you are really tired you make mistakes and a lot of 'frogging' was taking place so it went back in the basket. What I have been doing though is some crochet and have completed a scarf....I'm quite proud of it really!!

Not bad for a first attempt, I've quite got the bug now. I'm also quite excited as on Thursday I received  the L.H.N. Mystery Sampler in the post from Patchwork Rabbit...... looks interesting.
Yesterday I was with my son and grand-daughter Chloe at her first dancing competition. Four months ago she took up latin and ballroom dancing. I was so proud of her she got into the final of the quickstep, runner up in the cha cha cha and won the rock and roll with her partner Caitlan
Below are a few pictures, one is a little far away, she was just about to start her cha cha

Well the weather is beautiful here at the moment, lots of sunshine, a little bit too hot for me to sit outside in today, I'm not a sun worshipper so I think a little bit of stitching may be in order sat in my cool living room, I may even stitch a few threads in the mystery sampler. Hope all my blogging friends are having a lovely weekend.
Happy stitching
