Hello. I hope everyone had a great Xmas, we did!

The kids loved it and Esmai done very well at eating tearing the paper. Connor was well and truly spoilt, main presents included a guitar and the whole Octonaughts set, walkie talkies, ben 10 toys, remote control cars and battle tanks!!

I got loads including my very first ring sling, which is taking some getting used to. Perfume, a tablet (when it turns up), hair dryer and straightner set, and a very pretty watch.

Esmai had a chance to finally wear her Xmas nappy (which I brought months ago) It says “Be naughty save Santa the trip” so so pretty!

Dinner was lovely cooked by my partner, way too much food and I even had a cheeky glass of wine hehe

I have started working on “Tribal dragon” again. No time limit this time just taking it nice and slow and enjoying it. I’m struggling with the size of the stitches but then again I’m due an eye test.

Helloooo. I know its been ages since i done a proper update. Thats because i have spent all my free time stitching like a mad woman. Esmai's stocking was finished and made up last night. I did take more photos but think they may have been deleted. This will proberly be my last finish of the year. There havent been as many as i hoped but still better then none! So heres the pics

Quick update


Just a quick update to let you know that dad is ok, and I have been stitching like mad. I don’t know if it will be finished in time as I only have 14 days to get it done. I have made a tonne of mistakes that are slowing me down but I have decided to work around them as the mistake started at the beginning of the first snowman. There is no way that I am unpicking or restarting. I will post pics at the end or when it’s nearly finished. I have taken a few but not as many as I would normally as that means putting down the needle and finding more batteries lol.
