I did manage to do a bit more sneaky under the desk stitching at work over the last couple of days but not as much as I was a little busier! But Stuart's 40th card has grown thanks to that. I will post an update on thatnext time as I will work on Stuart's card again tomorrow as he is out all day. He is going down to Wembley to watch the NFL match, he and some of his football friends are going on the train and he tells me he won't be back until well after midnight! The girls and I are going shopping to buy some of their Christmas pressies - clothes and shoes probably!! Then we are having a Big Mac and McFlurry supper!! yumm.

Coaster stitching complete
I have achieved 2 of my goals for this week already. The penguin is all finished I just need to mount him on his shiny red card blank! Then this afternoon I have finished my poppy coaster for my MiL. It is actually titled Meadow Brown Butterfly and as you can see there is a lovely little butterfly on the left and purple flowers as well as the poppies! I managed to stitch this really quickly as I only spent 2 evenings and this afternoon on it. I will mount it in the coaster nearer to Christmas - I will have a finishing off week!!!
Last night Stuart was out also! so the girls and I watched "PS I love you".... oh what a lovely film but boy did we sob!!! At one point we all had a big mansized tissue each mopping up our tears! What a sight we must have looked!! Good film though.
My Auntie has had her operation date bought forward to this Monday (27th) so I thought I would post a picture of her to wish her the best with her operation and recovery. I hope all my blogging friends can send their love and prayers for her too! My auntie is the one in the middle of the photo with my uncle on one side and my mom on the other. This was taken at my 40th Birthday party last year. It is not the clearest of photos as this was taken with my old camera and has had to be cropped a bit to reduce the people in it!
Tonight is TV night - Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor... love them both. So I will have to stitch during breaks and after! I will continue work on Capricorn Peekaboo tonight.Ginnie x
