New baby card

Hope you have all had a good week. The girls had their school reports yesterday and we were very pleased with their progress, lots of nice comments and their English teacher predicts them both an A* when they take their GCSE this year (a year early!) We have parent's evening on Monday but I don't think we have much to worry about!!
Thanks for all your lovely comments about Henry, I think when it's finished I will definitely have it professionally framed and it will probably have to hang in the lounge somewhere to admire..... but I have said all along that it is for Laura as she is the "Tudors" fan! But I'll look after it until she has a house of her own!!!!
This week I have started Wedding Row, it is progressing well and I'm enjoying working on it. I'll take a photo tomorrow as I am still working on it tonight!
I have also spent a lot of time working on my new baby card for my cousin Steven and his wife. Their baby isn't due until mid May but I want to get it sorted early as it may arrive before then..... and I have 2 cards to stitch for the girl's birthday!!! They don't know if it's a boy or girl so I picked a neutral picture and will add the colour of the bow on the teddy in either blue or pink after it is born!! Hope you can see the picture emerging... it looked like a blob of greys and browns most of the week but now you can see the baby's head!! And of course the teddy!!

I also mounted all the "months" cards and have them ready to ship to the lady in the USA who bought them, I think she will be pleased but I hope she doesn't order anymore just yet!!

Tomorrow I must work on my Easter chickens to make my cones for Easter for the girls..... I didn't realise how close it was until the girls reminded me that they break up from school on Friday!!

Back to stitching then.....

Cute card, sounds as though your all organised!
Well done to your girls with being predicted an 'A' you must be really pleased:-) I have real trouble getting my daughter Stevie motivated with school work although given the chance again i would have chosen a different school, i've not been very impressed with the one she is at in Halesowen ever since the begining, we have had quite a few incidents of bullying too, but that's another thing.
Hope you have a good weekend, it's always over too quickly isn't it?

Well done on the girls' grades!

The baby card is darling as are the monthly ones, so pretty!

Gorgeous new baby card, i love the idea of the coloured ribbon on the teddy.
I'm sure your customer in the US will be thrilled with your wonderful cards.

Jean said...

Oh my gosh - I might have to stop visiting your blog. I come away in awe of the work and feeling like a slug!! LOL!!

The cards are so lovely. I don't know how you get it all done. You are probably stitching while your girls are studying to get such super grades! You can be very proud of them. Convey how impressed we all are to them!! I'm glad you got similar reports for both of them - it's hard when twins aren't at the same level.

Adorable card.
Good going on the grade reports.
Henry is looking fab.

Annette said...

The pattern of the baby-card is lovely.
I look forward when it is finisched.
What a many projects you are doing at one.
My compliments.

Sally said...

Congratulations to your girls. You must be so proud.

My two don't get reports. They get reviews instead with just their predicted grades and what they're working at. I've never been able to work out why there are no reports. I'd prefer it if there was.

Your cards are beautiful.
