Here at last ...

Hello all!

Well I have finally managed to log in and write a quick post!!  Life here is going well but super fast!!  Busy busy busy all day long helping with baby Abby and the school summer holidays! :)  We went for a lovely picnic in the park last week so I must find the photos and post a few!  We had a great time and we were there for hours and hours but it seemed like 5 minutes lol

I have finally managed this weekend to get detailed charted up for Abbys birth sampler so I will work away on that tonight and then I can get it to the framers! 

So far so good!

This week I have been sorting and organising my bedroom and I got a nice new bed too!  Cara is ready for a proper full size bed so she will have my single bed as its only a few months old so I bought a double bed .... for the same price as a single!!  Haha there was a method in my madness ... so I now have a big bed for when we have visitors. Speaking of visitors my mum and dad are coming over very soon so they can use my room rather than moving laura like we did.  So much harder moving Laura out of her room now that Abby is in there and that that would upset Abbys routine!  

The bed sheets I chose are lovely and I got some cushions to accessorise lol  I love typewriters so I really could not resist buying them!

The quilt cover has letters and postcard printed on also with 'Make Do And Mend' sayings on plus ... 'Stitched With Love' printed on which I didnt realise that was on so I was totally made up with my buy!!

I couldnt resist showing off my quilt cover with my TUSAL for this month ... a perfect condination I think!

TUSAL Stitched with love :)
 Last but not least my very slow progress on Summer Fairy
