Yule Fairy update

Hopefully the next update will be a page finish!
Really loving the colours in this, the camera really don't do it any justice. I have some medical tests coming up next week so hopefully will be able to get loads done :)

Stitching and the Esmai's first trip to the beach

Here is my progress. I would have posted earlier but have managed to lose all the threads i need for the lilac bits,so had to buy some more. I am really loving these colours. Working in columns is faster and alot easier.I will hopefully have a page finish very soon.

Esmai had her first trip to the beach and really loved it. She was a little unsure on the sand but soon started eating !

She also had her first paddle in the sea. After she got over the coldness , she was soon crawling through the water and having a good splash about!

I recently got a new woven wrap so i could do back carrys with Esmai,which is fantastic as i can use both my crutches and not have to struggle or worry about loosing the pushchair, just sling her on my back and off we go! Even my Dad has carried her on his back and enjoyed showing her the flowers in the garden. Connor keeps asking to carry her too but his way too short and not strong enough to, so he settled for carrying his teddy and spent most of the afternoon with Mr Monkey on his back.

Stitching-The Lake

I was meant to update this a few days ago but I lost my camera.
I was getting bored of working in rows so decieded to see how working in coloums goes. It was fster but then it was mainly blocks of colour but made a nice change. I am really loving the colours in this.
  We went to feed the ducks although yet again we got there too late and they wasn't that interested.

He was very enthusiastic

Esmai getting a closer look
 Just a little way from the lake is this place,i don't know what its called but its really beautiful. Full of waterfalls and little rivers all overflowing from a bigger river. There are log bridges been made by people but it wasn't possible to get the pushchair across. I thought the water wasn't as deep as it was and dragged the pushchair to the top. The view was lovely. On the way back I walked down the streams which was easier but I got completely soaked and even lost my trainers in a particularly muddy patch. We are going again this weekend but hopefully ill have my new sling so should be so much easier and drier!
