A Finish and Update and More

I have finished my January owl for the Oakhaven SAL. I really like the way it has turned out.

I have worked on my Halloween Fairy also.

I finished the wing and am now starting on the second one.

I have worked on Midnight Enchanter, but no pictures  yet.

I got a wonderful present from my daughter Rebecca. She gives me presents now and again for looking after my granddaughter. I just love it!

As you can see it is a Cath Kidson sewing basket. I just love her stuff but have never bought any as it is so expensive!

My daughter Becky and my granddaughter Androulla (Ulla or Doullie)

She has just started walking these past few days. I love her to pieces.

On Sundays last year, I used to meet up with a couple of other stitcher's, Sophia and Jenny but had to stop going because of looking after my granddaughter. Sophia emailed me out of the blue, and after I said I couldn't make weekends, moved it to a Tuesday evening. It was nice to be able to stitch with other stitcher's. This Tuesday gone was  my first evening with them. Apparently three other ladies are interested in joining us.


  1. Owl is so cute. The sewing basket is just great, looks like it will hold lots of little doo-dads. Your granddaughter is a dear.

  2. All is nice, the WIP and the basket but little Androulla is the best! What a little precious gem, and what a smile! Thank you for sharing pictures.

  3. You're owl turned out great Kelly, and the fairy is looking good.

    Isn't amazing how fast those little ones grow? My granddaughter will be two already in 2 months!

  4. The owl is very cute. Looking forward to seeing your progress on the fairy.
    Your granddaughter is adorable. I don't think I have ever heard of a name like that. Very unique. Does it mean anything particular?
    I get together once a month with some friends to stitch and I absolutely need it. Glad you can get together with your stitchey friends again.
