Turning 40, Holiday and stitching

On the 9th of July I turned 40 years young!  It was lovely having my family, Lucie, Ruth and Tricia there to celebrate with me and we had a good stitch a long with cake!!

Then on the 10th July I came over to my mum and dads for 3 1/2 weeks with my 2 eldest kiddies Laura and James.  So I can say that I have done very little stitching.  I will do the Liberty lane SAL today as Mum and Laura are playing in a ladies Golf Competition for the day.  Dad has taken James to the golf club to hook him up with some lads so he can play golf too so I am home alone.  A perfect time to get lots done!

Photos soon ....

Happy Stitching all!

The last two weeks stitching and SAL's

I didn't really get much done, more like hold my stitching whilst watching Wimbledon!

I started M'Ladys Strawberries by Little House Needleworks on the first day of Wimbledon but spent too much time watching the TV!!  I stitched for a day and then really hated the fabric so I started again ... fabric looks so much better now.  I hope I get this finished this week as there is not that much left to do.

I stitched this lovely Lizzie Kate design for my sister... I think this suits here very well!

I have also started some SAL's with Lucie and Ruth.  

Friday nights SAL is an Ornie from Little House Needleworks, I chose to do Joy To the World.

Saturday nights SAL is Liberty lane by Country Cottage Needleworks.  I am loving this one already and I have only done a little bit ...

Now maybe now the Tennis is no longer on I might get a little bit more done ... well once I have packed and got myself ready to invade my mums house for 3 and 1/2 weeks!!!  Whoop!  Cannot wait as I have not seen them for a very long time!

Happy Stitching everyone!
