First Christmas

I stitched this today for my nephew's son. I am going to stitch another for his little brother, Callum, who was born recently.

I have stitched a bit on Orlando Bloom and will carry on this week but again have been spending far too much time on my new computer adding photographs etc so haven't got as much done as I would like. I have quite a few gifts to stitch for Christmas presents so am going to work on these for the next few months as I don't want a last minute panic to get them finished.

I plan to stitch:-

Stitch a Star - Orlando Bloom
Stitch a Star - Zac Efron
L*K Whatever
Patchwork Name from Cross Stitcher Magazine
Birth Sampler from Cross Stitcher Magazine (I think)

As well as the above I would also like to stitch some christmas cards for close family and friends so am going to be quite busy.

Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

Row of Love Progress (not a lot)

Thisis my pitful progress on Row of Love this month. Sorry I haven't ironed it before taking a photo. I would have got more done but I had to unpick what I stitched yesterday afternoon as I was a row too far over. Whilst unpicking I managed to snip a small hole I am hoping that if you don't look too closely you won't see it. I tried to stitch another piece on top of the hole but it just wouldn't work.

I am going to work on my stitch a star, Orlando Bloom, this week. The small piece I have done on him is wrong so I am going to start again. So am going to say I am starting it as of today, 23 August.

I have to say I really enjoyed Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on Saturday afternoon. There were a couple of things I felt were missing from the book but it didn't detract from it at all and it wasn't as mushy and loved up as I was expecting so all in all looking forward to when it comes out on DVD so we can watch it again.

Many thanks for all your kind comments on my stitching - I really appreciate them.

I am off now to start Orland Bloom - wish me luck - I might need it.

Whatever the weather enjoy your stitching.

New baby card

Here's the new baby card I stitched for my nephew and his partner for the birth of their second son, Callum, born on 1st August.

It was from an old quick and easy cross stitch magazine and is a lovely stitch - I have done a couple of these now and really enjoy them.

Still not a lot of stitching going on - I can't seem to get going on it but perhaps if I turned off my new computer I might get some done lol. I am hoping to sit down tomorrow and watch the Grand Prix and stitch so heres hoping.

I will post a picture next week of any small amount of progress I do make to my Row of Love I like stitching on this so heres hoping I get some done.

I am taking my eldest son and a couple of friends to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince this afternoon and I am not sure who is more excited me or him.

Whatever the weather enjoy your stitching

At last!

At last I am able to blog again. I've had to replace my computer as my old one was dying a very slow and painful death. I wasn't able to blog and whenever I searched for something it would say oops this link has broken or go somewhere completely different to where I wanted to.

I have also been off work for two weeks as I had the flu and then a chest infection so I haven't done any stitching at all. But hopefully now I'm almost back to normal I will be able to start stitching again although my rotation has probably gone out of the window hopefully I will get back into the swing of things again.

Anyway that's all for now - whatever the weather enjoy your stitching.
