Here is my latest finish: I have stitched him for Katie a member of the World Wide Round Robin group on Faecebook.

I have also finished Mario's birth sampler and the first little Humphrey for Tobias' sampler. A couple of my friends were lucky enough to attend the craft show in Manchester. They've brought back a giant bag of 4Ply wool. So I'm knitting a waist coat for Tobias.

Tonight is the girls night out for me and some other mums. So there won't be any stitching tonight. No drinking though either because I'm still breastfeeding.

A new obsession? ATC's


I don't know but somehow I always forget to update this little blog of mine. I take photos and everything but then at the 2 am feed I realize: gosh I've forgotten again. ;-)

Anyway I have been a busy bee. We are trying to get the house ready for the Christening visitors. Trying is the right word. Our house is too small or we have too much stuff. The right lottery numbers for next Saturday would help? And the we'd get a house with two reception rooms and a annexe cum stitching palace.... Well one can dream can't one?

I have joined an ATC (Artist Trading Card) group on good old Facebook. This is my first one. And yes I was naughty again and haven't read the instructions properly. I sent it off way too early. The chart was a given one. So everyone is having the same, just in different colours or blackwork.

And this a heart I've stitched for someone at the X-Stitch-monthly group on yahoo. It looks better in real because it has buttons and beads.

And here are the finished chicks.
