Mothers Day


I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day.  My little kiddies gave me a box of chocolates off the 5 little ones who really could not wait for me to open them lol ...

Chocolates from the 5 little kiddies

I got spoilt rotten by my eldest on behalf of all the kiddies ....

Flowers, Chocolates, 2 Tatty Teddy cards, Tatty Teddy teddy,
Tatty Teddy mug with socks, Rhona Sutton Charm Bracelet, Perfume and a CD
From all my 7 children

Charm Bracelet which came with an additional 6 charms.

I think I can say I was well and truly spoilt :-)  I had a brilliant day ....
Thank you kiddies xxxx Love you all so very much xxxx

On the stitching front .... erm not much has been done due to illness of all but 2 of the 9 family members but everyone is now fit and healthy again so back to the stitching!  I am having withdrawal symptoms lol

Since Laura seemed to have started a Tatty Teddy theme I am stitching a Tatty Teddy to go with the 'theme'.

My stitching plans have taken a big turn so I will be putting big projects on hold for a few weeks ... maybe longer.

The school have a summer fate and this year it is in May and our Craft Group are having a stall at the fate so we are going to get some things made up and see how well they sell.  I cannot wait at all.  So I need to get some things made asap!!

I will post a photo or two of my stitching I have done over the last 2 weeks.

Until then Bye for now
Take care

A bit of this and that

Hello, a long time with no blogging again for me!  Hope you are all well.

I have done quite a bit of stitching the last week but it does not feel like it!  I think since my main projects are all big pieces it seems like I have not done much with not having any finishes, so I am cracking on with Gone Fishing today and the rest of the week to see if I can get this one finished and off my pile!  I did quite a bit last night.

Gone Fishing as at 6th March 2012
I worked the weekend on my Charlie Bear SAL and I am delighted at my progress.  I plan to stitch a few more letters then do some back stitching.  Steph stephs blog has already back stitched some of hers and it is looking fantastic .... oh and go to her blog to see her news!!  Cant wait to add detail to mine now.

Charlie Bear SAL
Next I would like to show off my Fairy Grandmother!  Her wing is very slow going and lots of colour changes every few minutes so I have decided to make progress on her body and face for now and do the wings as I go along!  She is looking beautiful I will admit and the photo does not do her justice at all.

To add to the mix of my stitching I have been asked to do a baby sampler for my friend niece who is expecting her baby in about 8 weeks time.  So the Sampler kit is being posted to me today so this will be my main project for the next few weeks.  Also I am going to be doing some stitching for my daughters Nursery. Then ... I found out a friend of mine is expecting so hey why not add a bit more stitching to my growing list lol!  I cant wait!  So I think I will have to adjust my target times and add to my to-do list!  With all this stitching being asked for I think I could start up my own little business :-)  Could not think of a nicer job!

Happy stitching to you all
