Making Hay While the Sun Shines

Hi everyone, while I've been sitting here with my leg in the air I have been able to really get stuck into some stitcheries.  I know that in a weeks time I may be getting a walking cast on and I also know that I really want to spend a lot of time learning to walk properly - something that I haven't been able to do for a few years.
So, with that in mind I have got three months worth of the SAL done - I hope you don't mind Chookyblue but I really do think I might be getting busy.  So, without further ado here is April & May's sampling followed by a couple for June.  So Miss Chooky, can I please be marked as 'done'?
Woops, blogger isn't letting me play with my pics, sorry, these are the best I can get.
Happy stitching
hugs
Miche'le
