Wow what a week!!

Well actually a few few weeks!!

My son Christian (17) spent a night in A&E  then had his appendix out the next day.

All 3 of the girls then got a nasty case of the flu and we had to take a week off school.

This week things are back to normal.  I've started a knitting project for the meanings during school time.

This is for Aliyah.  After this I plan to make the same one for Bethany in that chocolate brown.

Here is my stitching from several weeks ago.  Sorry for taking so long to share a pic.  I didn't get much done.

But I love her so far :)

I also started Charelaines Summer Mystery but I didn't get much done before the flu hit.

I'm taking part in a NZ rr, my first piece took forever to arrive then when it finally did the next piece came the next day ;-P lol so I'm busy stitching in those for now :)

Thanks for stopping by.

I have hardly stitched for ages now 😜.

I really really really want to but have hardly any mojo!  Just when I start to stitch again my mojo leaves 😳

I feel so tired all the time it's depressing 😭

Well what a bunch of "I" sentences!  My English teacher would have a fit!

Gonna try regularly blogging again, not sure whose out there still.  Might need to go through all the blog links and find whose home 😄

Blurry Charlotte

Charlotte is moving along :D  I'm hoping to finish her when I next stitch on her :D

I think my camera is dying :(

I'm starting a new project now, Arianna from Cross Stitching Art (yes I am addicted to CSA designs ;) )

This is the model pic

I can't wait to get started, shes so cute :D

It's my birthday this Thursday, I'm not sure what I am going to do for it, but my sweetie went shopping - I'm not sure whether to be scared or not ;)

Its also Miss Aliyah's 5th very soon and I made her party invites to day.

They were such fun, I found the idea on a free printables search and added in the bubble stick for the wand handle :D

Half a Happy Dance, A decision and ENVY :D

This week I stitched on Rose Fairy (Cross Stitching Art)  AND  I finished all the stitching!  :D  Just the beading to go, I am waiting on an order from 123 which includes the beads..... and a little stash spree, I'll share pics when they arrive :D

Not a great photo cause I took it quickly on my phone :D  I will take better pics when shes finished properly.

I made  a decision about Chatelaines DBS, I am going to restart.  I love the piece SO much and have struggled right from the beginning.  So its coming up my birthday in June so I think I will buy something light and pretty from Crafty Kitten and use my birthday voucher and birthday money :D

ENVY!!  Oh my gosh!  I always do this!  When I go look at the new Chatelaines when I've had a wee break!   BUT  I am in love!


Pomarium to go with Herbularius and what I have seen so far I'm in love with Tinctorium.

Sparkling Peacock Mandala

Tahiti Island Mandala *drool*

Sleeping Beautys Castle

Japanese Moss Garden *drool* some more

And I can't wait to see more of the Nymphs Garden :D

The dilemma

I'm trying to decide what to do about Deep Blue Sea.  I love the piece, I love my fabric, but I'm really struggling to stitch it :(. I feel like I'm stitching blind :(

So do I keep trying, toss it and restart, or just toss it?

Any advice would be much appreciated!



P.s. I have tried bright lights both above and under and I have tried the light cloth on my lap, nothing seems to help..... I'm thinking antique White would be fab ;)

PPS: Thanks everyone for your advice, I have decided to restart on a different fabric

The chandelier

from Siren and the Shipwreck is gonna be GORGEOUS!!

My goal for this week was to finish the Xs on the chandelier..... took me more than a week to get stuck into it, but when I did I got it done in an afternoon!

Back to Deep Blue Sea today :D

Return of the Deep Blue Sea

Yay!  I completed Part 4 of Chatelaines Deep Blue Sea!!

Seriously a big deal for me as last time I stitched on it those clam shells nearly made me quit!  :D

Sorry my pic is a bit washed out :(

I am stitching on Mirabilias Siren and the Shipwreck then I may either finish Part 5 of DBS or stitch some on Watergarden.... I haven't decided which yet :D



P.S  Have you Chatelaine lovers seen Tinctorium?  I love those willow arches!  I think  I may need it ;)
