Little bits.

I actually wrote this post last night... but blogger wouldn't load my pictures so here it this morning.......... Since writing this I have now finished Somebunny!!
Just a couple of small pictures to show today. Firstly here is the little bear I stitched at the weekend to make into a Christening card, cute and simple.

Tonight was supposed to be my first night back at stitch club, but mom is unwell she has this flu/cold thing that the girls have had, so we decided not to go afterall. I did stitch on my Lilliput Lane though for my 2009 SAL, which I was proud of myself for doing.

Otherwise this week I have stuck to my rota and worked on Family Tree and I Do. It was nice to pick up Family Tree again I had forgotten how much I loved working on it, there is a house at the bottom of the tree that I would like to get complete by Sunday. I Do is also coming along well, I need to get in touch with our friends though to check what both of their full names are as I have to stitch their initials at the bottom.
Here is my Somebunny that I am stitching for Helen's baby card - sorry no head yet just a bottom!!! Should get this done by the weekend too.

Had some bad news when I got in from work tonight, Stuart's Uncle Martin died last week, apparently he had been ill with cancer for over a year and told no one but his 2 sons, he was only 64. Stuart was close to him and his aunt when he was younger but since his aunt died about 10 years ago we have seen little of them. Stuart was naturally very upset and shocked that it taken them a week to tell us and that Uncle Martin hadn't told anyone about his illness. So good start to 2009 we now have a funeral to go to next week. On a more positive note my Auntie has finished her radiotherapy and seems to be doing very well, she also loved her book mark I stitched her for Christmas, so glad!

So I'm going back to Somebunny now, I think he deserves a head, don't you!

As you have allways such a wonderful blog, like to tag you,
Take care,

Here are the rules to play the game:

1. When you are tagged you are asked to list eight random facts about yourself and post them on your blog for visitors to enjoy.This is gonna be fun!
2. Tag eight of your blogging friends and leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to join in the fun if they have the opportunity. (If not, that's okay. They can still enjoy the random facts everyone shares:) Be sure to list a link to your eight friends in your posting.

I am glad your aunty is well.
Sorry to hear about the death. Some families are just like that. When my step GM passed away, I realised my parents had not told any of my brothers when one of them phoned me to ask why I was going to Manchester...I was going to the funeral!
My parents had kept it from them even though they lived at home with them!!!! i was as furious as they were..but no point getting angry with it. My thoughts are with you all...the year can surely only get better.

I had the same problem with blogger last night too. So glad to hear about your Aunt, but sad about your husband's uncle. People deal with these situations so differently at times, but the happy memories will always remain.
You look as if you have had a good week stitching

Sorry for your loss :( No, a funeral isn't a good way to start the year. So sad. Your stitching is so cute--love the bears.

I love the ideas for the cards. Could you do a tutorial on them...or do you buy them in kit form?

I am doing another cross stitch project. I am doing a little every night.
