I stitched!

Hello Fellow Stitchers.

I have stitched! Not alot but a little. I have no pics for you at the moment, as they are on my hard-drive at the moment, due to a re-install. I should be able to post them tommrow.

This week me and Connor went uptown in the search for childrens cross stitch. We found a few but nothing amazing. The only place i could find them was in Wilkosons, not even the two needlework shops up there had them. They had tapersty style ones but not cross stitch. I was quite dissapionted. We also brought a "Sow your own hat kit" which is made of foam, I think it could be fun to do.

It’s been over two weeks and I still haven’t picked up any stitching. I WILL tommmow!!! I feel like I’m wasting my nights by having nothing to show for it. During the day I have been keeping busy with Connor mainly doing arty things. We have made a paper mache pig. It’s been so much fun. Slow progress but fun. Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to start painting it! It’s been nice to have something I can sit down and do with my son. It makes the painful days pass quicker.  So here is Mr Piggy. Connor named him, not bad for a 3 yr old. I wanted to call him pizza or chicken head but Connor wasn’t having any of it!

We also did some hand painting in the garden. Which somehow turned into a paint fight! Soon there was paint everywhere. All over the garden all round the house. I stood there in the middle of it all and thought I really shouldn’t have worn my brand new white shorts!

We gave the shed a make over

Areas of the house was covered

 Its has been sooooooo much fun!
