Fecking typical

After hours and hours stitching i thought i would show you a progress pic. Was marking off my chart so i didnt forget where i was before looking for my camera and relised i have got the wrong sodding fabric!! In one part of the chart it says 14 aida on the next page it says 32 count evenweave!! I thought it was looking small but didnt think anymore of it.
So first thing in the morning im off to town to pick up the right fabric and start all over again. Doubt ill get it finished in time for xmas now unless i somehow manage to BF while stitching lol
anyway have some  pics of my Son enjoying his first day of half term-Messy play day:

Was meant to post yesterday but didnt get a chance.
So here it is TA-DA!!!
I was surprised at how rusty i had become, it took ages and its not very neat,but, its getting neater and quicker,so im happy with it.

Stitchey post

Hello my lovelies
The next update will be a progress pic! I got my order through from “cross stitch heaven” this morning and have spent the day kitting up my new project. Its “Tumbling snowmen” I’m not sure who designed it. It will be for my daughter for her first Christmas. I’m actually rather excited. I will be starting tomorrow as tonight I have been playing with sewing machines. My normal little one is missing a piece after I lent it out to someone so I have borrowed my mum’s old manual machine. I have fallen in love with this. It used to be my great-nanas. It’s amazingly heavy, I can’t move it by myself, it’s very old and oh so pretty. There’s something rather nice about using something that is older then you are! Anyway to try it out, being the first time I have ever used a manual machine, I hemmed the linen for my daughters stocking, and made my first pair of breast pads!

The kids are doing well; Esmai is gaining weight and is cutting her first tooth at 3 months. Connor is having behaviour issues at school but other than that life is great here!
I have been reading your blogs and everyone’s work is truly amazing
