Stitching - hurrah

Well I think 2010 will be good if the last few weeks is anything to go by. We have changed Ruby's food to only natural ingredients so I cook meat and two veg for her every day BUT she is so much better and most evenings now settles down for a long sleep by 'mum'. She now comes to us for fuss and although she still barks a little it is nothing to like the first few months. All this means I CAN STITCH :) :) :)



I have just updated the 2010 Weekly SAL with my work on St George (Julie - I'm still working on it). It's a lovely SAL with loads of beautiful work - quite enabling so I better be careful.


Unfortunately the frog visited today too so although I have done all the red on the left I actually did it twice LOL. I hope he carries on with his own stitching and leaves mine alone in future.


I had a fantastic moment on Saturday. I have also joined the Little House Ornies SAL which is to stitch the ornaments from Little House Needleworks as they are released each month. I have ordered mine with Down Sunshine Lane and they post them out each month from US. The first ornament was Fa La La and it was released in November 2009. I watched the SAL blog with envy as everyone stitched theirs but mine didn't arrive - well Saturday it did, hurrah. I now have my copy and can get stitching. Well done Postie - 21st November to 2nd January - not so long long really, just a year apart LOL.

Back to work tomorrow - I've had a brilliant festive season, we've spent time with family and friends, been on a coupleof breat days out and had some quiet time at home.

Happy stitching to you all - I hope you have many HDs in 2010.

Lovely stitching on St George. I am so glad you finally I have Fa La La. Hope you get the next one a bit quicker.

Hi Clare

Hope your back to work goes well and it is a non contact day for you!
We changed Nell's food to James Wellbeloved, costs a lot more but she is less hyper but still needs a really long walk each day thank goodness Mike likes walking too!
Shall look forward to seeing your stitching on the 2010 SAL!
Happy Stitching

A great progress pic, just because i post Mr Stick tuesday doesn't mean you have to actually stitch that night, some girls do other nights.

Hope the darned frog has gone back into hibernation now. Great to see St G again. Am finding the SAL keeps me focused - amazing what an update deadline does for you! LOL
Looking forward to seeing your LHN ornies through the year. :0)
Love your garden visitor. :0)
