Catch Up

Hello to you all!

Oh wow it has been a long time since I last blogged ... what can I say other than just not enough hours in the day plus not much stitching time at all.

Kiddies and myself have not been very well.  Bugs and germs flying around us all then back again!!  Then it was Easter, which was great fun! Loved seeing the children with their chocolate Eggs.  This year the Easter Bunny even left paw prints in the house lol :-)

Good news though, My 7 Year Old Conor passed his grading for his Red Belt in Karate.  I can now admit I did some secret stitching for him. I did a design by Margaret Sherry 'Karate Dog' from the Bookazine that was printed some months ago. Needless to say Conor is totally delighted with his red belt and his Karate dog!!  I must get a photo of the piece and post it!

I have done a few small designs as our Craft Club are doing a stall at the school summer Fete in May.  I cannot wait to sell some of what I have stitched!

I have stitched a little on my Fairy Grandmother.  I spent hours stitching her face 1 over 1 on 32 count evenweave but it looks like I have hardly done anything on her! I early gave myself eye strain lol.  I will post a photo of her too.

I cannot think what else I have done except housework, shopping, see to sick children and a little stitching ... ooo eat chocolate too!!

I will post photos asap!

Bye for now

Love me xxxxx
