Big update


This is the new project I have started to tide me over until I get my partner in the ILCS bookmark exchange that Meari is hosting :)
It is a small kit by Mill Hill called Wisteria Angel, which will be an ornament complete with beaded tassels.

I also finished Androulla's pram blanket:


Androulla was not available at the time the picture was taken lol.


I have just 'inherited' a book group on Yahoo. Sadly to say the owner passed away so the son made me and another lady co owners. I am looking forward to help running it as I'm a voracious reader and have a huge passion for books. The group is lovely as it's about British Classic books and the group reads  a classic each month and we have discussions about the book. It's a small group but very nice.

Last but not least, I went out on a hen night on Saturday as my bestest friend is getting married on Friday. Jayne and I were the best of friends at school but we lost touch and she looked me up and found me on Facebook.  It's like we have never been apart. We still giggle like school girls when we are together lol.


I'm the one in the middle with the pint of beer :)

Colin my partner, got a tattoo done on his arm big deal you might say but Colin has never had one done before lol. Picture and a reason why he had it done, to follow shortly.................lets just say, I will think twice before I say things in future lol. People are guessing on Facebook what he has had done lol.

Woohoo, a Finish!


By Sue Hillis PS144
Stitched on 28ct Summer Khaki Lugana.

Woohoo, I can't believe I managed to stitch all afternoon and get a finish too! Now I'm not sure what to stitch on next, something already in progress or start something new? Decisions, decisions :)

The end of last week I managed to finish baby Angelina's cot blanket. I am making baby Androulla's pram one at present.

Angelina's Blanket

Last but certainly not least is a picture of baby Androulla with her proud parents. Doesn't she look just like her daddy lol :)

Small update

Sunday I met up with Sophia and Jenny, the ladies from my cross stitch group. I can't actually remember the last time I stitched so I was pleased to get some done on my pirate which should of been finished a long time ago.

Last Thursday (8th July) I was privileged to be at the birth of my granddaughter Angelina. She is such a cutie!
I have nearly finished crocheting her a cot blanket, then I have another one to crochet as my daughter Becky's baby is due any day now and then I can get back to my cross stitching lol. Although I do have a third baby blanket to crochet as my daughter Kimberley is expecting a baby in November. Talk about a baby boom in the family lol.
