Asking a favour ...

Hello all!

My 9 year old son Ryan has started his own blog Ryans Arty Blog

I would love it very much if you could take a look, comment and/or become a follower.

He is brilliant at art and craft and I am trying to encourage him to spend more time at it rather than wanting to play on the computer all the time!!

If you don't want too then that's fine.

Thank you so very much

Family, Lizzie*Kate new stash and ISHW update

Good Afternoon Bloggers

My family and I have had a fantastic time over the last 10 days that my parents were staying.

It was so lovely to have them here again and we hope to visit them early next year as my kiddies really want to go to their house ... I hope they leave it standing by the time we go home ha ha :-)

Laura and mum had a blast cooking away ... gorgeous meals and puddings and I think I need to go on a diet now as my clothes don't fit now lol!!!

My little ones really enjoyed pinching Grandad's computer and not letting him use it lol!!

Ryan took my dad out to do some bulb planting and they had great fun!!

Dad and Ryan planing bulbs
Ryan, Mark, Dad, Katie, Conor, Laura, Cara and James
When my dad is over it is tradition that he has his photo taken with Katie   This started when she first had her photo taken and then the next time dad was here Katie remembered so another photo was done so why break the habit of a 'life time' and not take one so ....


Dad and Katie
Brilliant photo!!

Katie just loved having rides home from the school bus stop each day ...

Grandad the 'Taxi Driver'

I treated myself to a little new stash ....

ooooo Lovely lovely new shiny toys for me!

Just love Lizzie*Kate designs and I have stitched a few this year and I think there maybe more to be stitched next year too!!  Really am looking forward to having a wonderful stitching session and updating My Posh Thread list.

I enjoyed my little stitch along on the ISHW members.  Thank you so very much for your company :-)

I decided to stitch the Tatty Teddy kit my mum bought for me and brought it over with her when she visited last weekend :-)


Tatty Teddy kit from mum

Pleased with the good progress I made and I'm really pleased with my little self!!

I hope to get a little more done very soon but I plan to do a little Lizzie*Kate Christmas stitching and other Christmas Stitching over the weekend.  Planning to have lots to show you all come Monday!!

Just in case I get through all my stash I can always read one of my new books ....



Well I had better get up and get food organised for the hoards of children charging through my door in about an hour .... by hoards I mean my own children coming home from school lol!!

Happy stitching all
Take care

Love me xxxx

Hermit Weekend

Hello all

I have just remembered it is Hermit Weekend and since my 5 younger kiddies are staying the night with their father I will have a little stitching session later on this evening.

This afternoon myself, James, Laura and Laura's fiance Johnny are going out for tea with my mum and dad then afterwards coming home as mum wants to watch her TV programmes so we will all do our own thing later on so I will stitch on the Tatty teddy kit mum brought with her for me along with a bag full of kits:-)  I do love Tatty Teddy xxx  The kit is called 'A flower For You'

A picture of the kit I am going to do.

I went to take a photo of all my kits off mum but my memory card wasnt in my camera!!  I have no clue where it is so maybe I need a memory card in my head to remember where my memory card is lol!!

Have a brilliant day all

Dont for get about my kit/chart giveaway

Lots of love 
Me xxxxx

What a day!

Good evening bloggers

Oh today has been a busy crazy day!!  Katie didn't feel well so she was off school.

Ryan couldn't find his glasses when he got up this morning.  He puts them on his bedside table every night but during the night they grew legs and ran off!!  Ryan is as blind as a bat without his glasses so he was off school also.  We turned the house upside down looking for them but no joy at all so off to the optitians for a nw pair.  I thought maybe Ryan had hidden them to stay off school so I banned him from the computer and TV so he didnt strain his eyes but his glasses still didn't 'just tun up' so I guess they are really gone ... walked off in the night!!  How can a pair of specs just vanish?????

Whilst Ryan was off I took him for a hair cut lol I am just a kind mummy!!!  What a treat!!

Then once homework was done, eaten, kitchen cleared up it was not far off bedtime!!

Next week my parents are coming over and I cant wait.  The kids cant either.  We are going to have so much fun!!

No other news to report ... don't forget my giveaway ... comment and follow blog to be in with a chance of winning :-)

New creations and Little House Needleworks Give-away

Good afternoon all

Hope everyone is well and full of mischief! lol

How many of you are super organised for Christmas?! Im a little bit organised and have ordered a few presents but that's about it!  Laura and Johnny are away to Argos store to collect what has been reserved. At the minute in between blogging and a few other bits and pieces I am doing an on line order with Hobbycraft. I really must get a move on with everything else.

We discovered the other day that during our garage clear out that we managed to trow all the Christmas decorations out ooops!!  Oh well we can start a fresh with new decorations for our 'new family life'.  New memories to be made :-)

On the stitching front I have been busy with making presents for 2 friends :-)

I made a bright and colourful biscornu for a crafting friend.  My biscornus seem to be a hit at the craft club and have a waiting list lol!!
