Heading into 2012

Good Morning to you all!

I am having fun at my mum and dad's house.  It is lovely to be here and see my folks and my sister and her kiddies.  My eldest niece popped in with her 2 kiddies which was lovely.

Whilst over here I just had to have a trip to Hobbycraft!  I actually didn't buy any stitching stuffs at all.  Instead I got a Latch Hook Rug kit which I have started!  So easy to do and it will look really good when finished.  Cannot wait to do some more on it but first it is out to lunch with a friend and then a New Years Eve party so crafting will have to wait for a day or so!  I might be sneaky and pinch a few minutes here and there during the day.  Will post pictures when I am home.

Have a safe and Happy trip into 2012 everyone

Bye for now

Love Heather xxx

PS watch out for a LHN and CCN chart giveaway next week 
(once I am back home on the 4th Jan)

Heading for new crafting fun

I have always wanted to learn new crafts basically try new things, even if I only do them one .... so watch this space!

After watching Kirstie Allsopp's Crafting programmes on TV and receiving 2 of her books from my daughter Laura as a Christmas Present I am really itching to start.  I am very short on fabric and other goodies I might want to use so I feel a good shopping trip coming on.  I am over at my mums for a week so I will have access to a great number of shops and places I can obtain supplies from.  Lets hope I can find lots of goodies to use!!

Of course I will plough through my list of WIP's ... I promise :-)

Merry Christmas to you all

I hope you all had a brilliant day!  kids are in bed so time for a quick blog then a tidy up and early bedtime for me I think!  Totally worn out lol

This is just the tiny bit of Christmas Stitching I did this year

For my Bessie Jan
For Gail

For Katie's Nursery teachers
On the 27th December I am off to mums for a week.  I cannot wait to see them and my sister and her kiddies.  It has been 9 years since I have been over there at this time of year.  I plan to meet up with a few friends too.  

Have a safe and Happy Christmas Evening and enjoy the rest of the festive season

Love Heather xxxxx

First Craft Club and definitely not the last because ...


Roll on Next Friday for another session!  We had a lovely chat and crafted the morning away.  I took Mark's Pirate stitch with me.

Lovely to see sewing, crochet and knitting in action :-)  I have also recruited a lady to be a possible cross stitcher so fingers crossed!

Next week one of the ladies is bringing in materials to make Christmas Crackers!!  I will be popping in and out as my 4 year old Katie has her Nursery Christmas play but it will be fantastic just to be there even if it is just for a little while.

I did learn something new .... there are craft lessons in my area so I will be putting my name down for sewing machine lessons, crochet and knitting classes and any others like patchwork!!  oooo so exciting!!

All in all a wonderful and beautiful morning!

Have a lovely weekend all

News, Stitching and Stuff

Good Morning to you all!  I hope you are all in the festive spirit.  Last weekend myself and 7 kiddies put up some of the Christmas decorations and the Christmas tree!!  We had great fun :-)

I bought a new tree this year which already had the light on it, how lazy am I? lol

Our Christmas Tree
I am totally delight because a couple of the mums  from my kiddies Primary School and myself are setting up a Craft Club which will run every Friday Morning at the kiddies school.  I am so exited, it will be so nice being able to sit and craft, chat, drink coffee and eat cake with some lovely people!! We take our own crafting stuff with us so needless to say I will be taking my stitching with me.  You never know I might even convert a few to stitching and I hope to learn a few new crafts myself!

Finally my stitching over the last week or so!!  I have done a few things for Christmas, which I need to make something out of them before Christmas has come and gone ... which it tends to do in the blink of an eye lol

I have stitched 2 of the LHN ornies again for presents, plus a few other things.  I have stitched a little bit more on my Fairy Grandmother and Mark's Pirate stitching.
