Cross Stitch update

I'm back with another update.

As I was saying to Skip earlier today, it's just hit me that my SIL is due to have her baby at the end of March, which is NEXT MONTH, that's really hit home, so now I have to get a hurry on and finish the two projects that I'm working on for her. But as promised, here is the next update on the Cross Stitch that I'm doing.

Cross stitch

As promised, a couple of photos on the progress of my cross stitch that I'm working on. I'm slowly getting there. It is going to take me a while though, but luckily I have until April to get it finished.

Get Well Soon

I found out the other day that my bestest friend in the whole wide world's Mother is really sick. She collapsed at work and the Dr's are running a whole heap of tests on her to find out what's wrong. So I thought that I would make a Get Well card and send it off to her, as she was there for me quite a few years ago when I needed someone. She is almost like a 2nd mother to me.

New Cross Stitch project.

Ok, so I said I was working on a butterfly Cross-stitch. Well I lied.. hehe.. I've decided to do a gorgeous "Noah's Ark" sampler for my soon to be born Niece. I was flicking through some books that I have last night, and saw this one, and fell in love with it. Might even do one for us, "when" we have another baby. I guess I'll be extremely busy over the next few months, luckily she's not due until end March, early April so I have a little while to do it, but knowing me, if I don't get on with it now, it will be left to the last minute and not finished at all.

Will upload some pics a little later when I've done more than a box on it.

Well I can finally get to start on one of my 2010 projects. This year I want to try and get some more Cross-stitching and knitting done. It's a little hot to be doing the knitting at the moment, but I am doing some Cross-stitching at last.

While I was cleaning out my cupboards yesterday, I found a couple of small project packs that came in some magazines that I used to collect. So thought, great, it's small enough that I can get back into it. After sorting out all the cottons and numbering them, I got stuck into it last night while the kids were in bed.

It's going to take me a while to finish it off, as I can only do it at night when they're in bed, don't trust my boys during the day if it's left on the couch accidentally. But I will deffinately put progress pics up as I get to work on it.

Material for my Picnic Bag..

 For my birthday I got given a Spotlight voucher, so decided to go there the other day and spend it. I want to make a picnic bag that will hold the basket that I got, and a few other things. It's quite hard to explain but once it's done, I'm sure you'll understand what I mean.

This is the material that I ended up getting, I think it looks awesome.

Just a few bags to start the year off with.

I promised my girls another new bag each the other day, as they happened to see some material that they both liked while I was cleaning out my material drawer. So of course being the good Mummy that I am, I said yes to making them one each.

This is what I came up with.
