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
