Best Xmas Ever!! Pic heavy

Merry Xmas...I know im late! I hope you had a fantastic xmas. We did.
The kids were up earlyand very excited.
Connor with 2 presents from Santa
Esmai wearing her stocking
Connor asked Santa for something he could share with Esmai
Connor with His and Esmai's joint present from Santa
Esmai was equally excited about it (Excuse me looking grumpy in the background, i hate photos and i hate mornings)
Connor got his very first bike. He has wanted to learn for months. He was so excited that he didnt even finish putting his shoes on first!
Esmai got her first trike so she can learn to ride with Connor. She was very excited untill she relised that she had to be strapped in, then she kept trying to climb out.

Connor riding for the first time

Esmais Xmas day dress
I was well and truely spoilt. I got a steam cleaner and a new sewing machine which is amazing.
I have already put it to good use and have made a carrier bag holder, very quickly with no instructions. Its no where near perfect but was so much fun and so relaxing to sew.
But by far the best present i recieved was a engagment ring from Steve. I had been secretly hoping for months, but thought it wouldnt happen.
After we done the stockings and presents from family. Steve called both the children into the kitchen. Connor came out holding a little black gift bag. He came upto me and gave me to bag. Told me to open it and then He asked me if i would marry Daddy.
I said yes, and then Connor burst into tears and told me he didnt want me to marry Daddy.
After a bit of explaining about what marrige is he is quite excited about and agrees we should get married.

Page Finish!!

I finished page 5 last night. It took a lot longer then I expected but I haven't had a chance to sit down and stitch like I normally do. I am thinking of putting this away for a few months and working on other things.
The kids are doing good.
Esmai is into climbing everything. She can now climb out of her highchair, pushchair and cot.
Me and Connor have been making salt dough Xmas decorations instead of sending cards to family. They were a lot of fun

Connor Wrote and sent his letter to Santa.

"Dear Santa.
  How do you deliver our presents when we haven't got a chimney?
  Why do you use the chimney when the door would be easier?
  Please may I have:
  • a big long present
  • a football
  • a moneycat????
  • a bath toy
  • a scooter
  • a little black top like mummy's
  • a TATTOO !!!
  • a book
  • a pen
  • a new cup
  • and something I can share with my sister
Thank you very much
Connor xxxx

excuse the mad hair

Esmai's New bedding.

I have converted my very first Single quilt set into a cot bed quilt and pillow set. Im so happy that I managed to do it as me and my sewing machine hate each other! It was a lot easier then I thought it would be. YAY!!!

In other news stitching coming along very slowly due to new addiction to Game of thrones! YUM Drogo!! How could they kill him off!! Finished Season 1 last night and starting season 2 tonight.

Dress finished!

Well on this page anyway!
I have filled in the last bit of background at the top and the random stitches of the colour I was missing.
The dress is still missing the white but I will be doing that when the whole piece is finished.
Next up is the black frame and draping fabric which I will be stitching at the same time. Hopefully the next update will be a page finish!
When I have finished this page I have been considering putting her away for a few months. I would like to work on some Xmas designs while its not too late and in the new year will be starting another HAED possibly Middle Earth or Forest walk SK. I have never worked in a rotation before but was thinking of working on a new one until August then returning to Yule Fairy
