News from my corner of the world

Hello fellow bloggers

News from my corner of the world is that my husband and I split last week.  I am now a single mother of  7 children, well I say children but my eldest girl, Laura, is 22 and my eldest boy, James, is 16.  The 5 youngest are from this marriage but even so all 7 children are at home.  Thank goodness Laura is here as she is my rock!

So my stitching time is totally cut to next to nothing at the moment but the children are far more important.  I have put my HAED's away for now and hope that they do get finished this life time lol!

I am going to solider on with my Fairy Grandmother and Charlie Bear SAL as and when I can.  I have a few of my UFO's out to finish as and when I can.  I hope to keep blogging even if it is about life more so than stitching!

On that stitching front I do have a few things to sell at the School Summer Fete this weekend.  I will post a photo asap.

My plan of action is to finish of M'Ladys Strawberries that I started last June lol! It should have taken me a few days to stitch this chart but yet nearly a year later .....  Then onto the fishing stitch I also started towards the end of last summer.  The idea is to get the smaller pieces I started finished and maybe do a few smaller kits for now.  Life without stitching is a little sad!  Life without him is good ha ha!!

I have spent the last week clearing out jumk and rubbish then having a small re-arrange of the house.  So when all that is complete I might get some stitching into the day.  Time will tell, but like I say there are more important things at the moment but stitching will always be there!

Bye for now
Keep up the good work, I'll be looking lol

Lots of love
