Some new things

I knew I hadn't blogged for a while but I can't believe it has been over a month, whoops. Time flies ..... I have also had lots of problems with my PC at work so haven't had much chance to get on here and download photos.

I have continued on my Henry VIII a little but the border is so repetative... that I am struggling to keep motivated..... but I will get there.

Otherwise I have a few new ones to show you.

I have started a ballerina one for Becki, it is all in sepia type colours so will be lovely eventually just takes a while to take shape. I have run out of DMC0739 though and hope Stuart is popping to the shop later to get me some.

I actually started this Angel one just after Christmas but forgot about it. It is a Joan Elliot one and will have lots of little beads on too. She is progressing well and is very pretty.

Last week I finished this little Flower Fairy one that was free with one of my magazines. When the girls were really "into" Flower Fairies this was one of their favourites. I think Becki had a costume made to be this fairy at school once. So I had to stitch it. I just need a nice square frame now.

Last Wednesday my two lovely girls turned 17..... I have no idea where those 17 years have gone. We had a little family get together with a take away pizza on the Monday then on the actual night of their birthday they went to Wetherspoons for a meal with lots of their friends. This photo was taken then.

Laura starts her AS level exams next week, this first college year has flown by. Becki doesn't do exams on her course but has lots of assessments and dance shows coming up. Next we have to start looking at Universities etc.... that is a scary thought !

Well I will try not to leave it so long to update next time.... happy stitching

nice stitching !

I know how it is, first it was the stress before Tristan´s first communion, and then it was un-stressing afterwards.......
didn´t matter , time still flies !
