Midweek Update

On Monday, I finished 'Let it Snow' by Barbara Ana.


I really like the way it has turned out............this one I am definitely keeping after giving the last one I stitched away!

My new start is 'It's a jingle out there' by Lizzie Kate.


I was stitching for the blind ornament exchange on my ILCS group that Rene is running until I saw that it was 5 by 5 inches so too big for an ornie. I will have to find another one to do for it.

I am taking up Evalinas UFO challenge and will be stitching on my Wizard. I will update my progress on him on him next week.

I see that I have 123 followers. If I reach 125, I will do a blog give away!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lizzie Kate September Stamp

I finished my September Lizzie Kate Stamp.


I am very pleased at the way it turned out. I was going to start my ornament for the blind ornament exchange on my ILCS group, but I didn't have two threads and needed to order some neutral coloured fabric (which arrived in the post this morning), so yesterday I started a freebie by Barbara Ana. I have stitched it before but gave it away. It's called 'Let it Snow'. I am keeping this one as I want it to go on my seasonal shelf.


I'm stitching it on a scrap of Polstitch's over-dyed fabric called 'Sky High'. It will resemble a snowman when it's finished lol. I just love snowmen.

The last two days I have baby sat Ulla (Androulla) my granddaughter, while my daughter runs their restaurant. Here she is asleep in granddad Colin's arms .

Stitchy update

 Freebie from Lizzie Kate using:
Polstitches Dragon Floss in Poppy,Pots of Gold, Follow your Dreams, Seasonal
Sampler Threads in Bubblegum and DMC in 740.

Here is the ornament I did for the ILCS Summer Ornament exchange. I didn't actually get to do the swap as my partner has been ill so it looks like I will be keeping it.

I've been in bed with a nasty flu like virus the last week but felt well enough to get up yesterday and do some stitching which I haven't done in a long while. I started my bookmark for the bookmark exchange on ILCS that Meari is running. At time of writing, it is nearly half completed.

I then started Septembers Lizzie Kate Stamp. I don't think I've done July's or Augusts.
I had a really good stitching day yesterday and am pleased with my progress.

I'm engaged!

Yes you read right, I'm engaged! This is the story behind the tattoo lol.
Colin was always asking me to marry him and was always saying no lol. So a couple of weeks back, knowing Colin hates tattoo's, I said to him, 'The day I'll marry you is the day you come home with a tattoo of my name on your arm!' So you can guess what he did............yup he got it done lol.

Last Friday we went to my best friends wedding and Colin was best man.

Colin and I........I don't like wearing dresses hence my expression lol.

Jayne and Olly

At the evening reception, Colin did his best man speech and then the little shit my beloved started talking about me. I knew right away what he was up to and  dived under the nearest table head first. The groom, Olly pulled me out by my ankles and put me in an arm lock lol, so I couldn't run away.

Colin proposing

Colin proposed to me complete with ring and asked me to marry him next year.........I called him a few choice names and said yes lol. At this point I was still sober lol. 

We had a fantastic time at the reception. Jayne changed out of her wedding dress and we rocked out with plastic  blow up guitars as she had a live guitar player/singer at her wedding Mick Mepham who is fabulous and has played with greats like Eric Clapton! If you haven't guessed, Jayne and Olly are bikers :)
Jayne and Me

Me Jayne and the twins

Ashley rocking with the big guys

Jayne Ashley and me.

As you can tell, Jayne and I don't act our 46   years of  age lol. We were the bestest friends at school and  somehow lost touch and she found me on Facebook. We are having a ball together and act just like school girls giggling all the time.
