Couple of stitchy things

Well I am finally having a few minutes to myself and thought I'd update my blog. Thanks so much for the nice messages for Becki on my last mini posting. Sadly it us still continuing as most of the bitching is being done on Facebook (how cowardly) but everything they write I am copy and pasting into a word document and will use it if I have to go into school and report them. Most of it is just nit picking etc but it isn't nice to be on the receiving end of it. One of them said she would have "no friends" funny then that in 2 days she hasn't stopped visiting all her "out of school" friends and is at the moment out with loads of her dancing friends having a chinese meal. I think a lot of it is jealously.... but I do wish I would just stop !!
Anyway I'll stop moaning on and show you a couple of my stitching WIPs.
Here is Robert Pattinson (Twilight actor if you don't know!) I thought I would hate doing another of these "Stitch a Star" but I am really enjoying it! I would still like to do the one of David Tennant for myself.... maybe next year!

I am also working on "January" Flip it, which I must get finished over Christmas! I don't break up from work until Christmas Eve but then am off until January 4th.... so lots of stitching time!

I have also been working on Henry !! Yeah. I'll have to show you that next time as I haven't taken a photo.

My "finished" list is looking good.... hopefully I'll add the above 2 on aswell before Jan 1st. I am planning my 2010 stitching too and will let you know my ideas before the end of the year.

Tomorrow I am working just half a day and then we are going into Birmingham to the German Christmas Market. We had better wrap up warm as we are having a very cold spell here at the moment..... we even have a bit of snow.

Anyway I'll try to post again before Christmas... so until then

Happy stitching.

Ginnie xx

Facebook has a lot to answer for! The boys loved the snow today, it was still falling when I last looked. Hope you get plenty of stitching time over the holidays, be great to see these finished

I am sure Facebook has an anti-bullying policy and I think there is now a law against it..
I would go down the school and make sure they are aware of it.
At that age they take things to seriously, but as she has lots of friends away from those hormonal little bags, I am sure she will be able to see the bigger picture and get it into perspective.
It is jealousy...that and very very sad.

What a lovely pieces you are making...

It obviously is jealousy , as Becki is beautiful and very talented , so she can well do without these little oiks. Tell her to keep her chin up and just smile at them. I used to have a T-shirt that said "smile , it makes people wonder what you're up to", and found it quite appropriate and helpful at times lol.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas XXX

I hope you can get the bullying stopped. I know what it's like as a parent when it's your child that's the victim, my DD J got bullied because she has a medical condition which impacts on her weight and with the world being like it is for thinness she got picked on a lot! I'm sure too that Facebook can do something about it and hope the school helps you as much as possible. Your stitching is great, my DD is stitching the Pattinson chart too :) Best wishes to you and your family for christmas and the new year :)

It does sound very much like jealousy and I do hope things settle soon.

Both your WIPs look wonderful not let Abi see Robert Pattinson although I think she prefers the other one lol!

Julie said...

We've got lots of snow too and its so cccold, hope you have fun tomorrow.

Merry Christmas
