Celtic Christmas Cross Stitch Picture

I've been working on the above for a couple of years now... am on the metallic thread section which is taking me forever as can only do a few stitches at a time as the thread is prone to snapping. But oh my it is looking very pretty now... this is the kit I'm talking about if any of you are unfamiliar:


PS - this is a great online shop! very fast service and friendly too!

Does anyone of you lovely bloggers happen to have any size Bamboo knitting needles they are willing to trade in return for a surprise pressie? Am looking in particular for size 4mm needles? Much appreciated xx.

Autumn fun

Really loving this weather, time for cosying up next to the fire with a blanket and some stitching in front of me.. maybe even a cup of cocoa! It's the simple things in life that really make me happy!

Little girly took a few steps yesterday, whoopee! While I was holding onto her - but it won't be long before she takes those few magical steps on her own...

Baby blanket update - have completely 5 large squares of it now! The squares are about 10 x 10in. All in lovely autumny browns and orange colours.

ta ta for now, I hear baby cooing for my attention...

WHO Bread...

I'm just making WHO bread from Amanda Blake-Soule's recipe here... http://soulemama.typepad.com/soulemama/2008/02/who-bread.html

Sounds yummy, I love baking bread, although I have to admit I make it in the breadmaker!

Am currently reading a really gripping story called The Terror by Dan Simmons, it's a really big novel but very interesting. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Terror-Dan-Simmons/dp/0553818201/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255634129&sr=8-2

Sampler Complete!


Well I finished baby's birth sampler a couple of weeks ago... am soooo pleased with it!

Working on knitting up baby blanket that I started a while ago... hope to get that finished before her birthday in December.

Yesterday we had a nice day visiting my partner's grandad and parents. It was his grandad's 90th birthday last week so we gave him his present and cards, then we had a yummy curry for tea and settled down in front of tv watching Trueblood and knitting.

Today we visited my parents who have just come back from a trip abroad to LA! They absolutely loved it there, the people were so friendly and had a great time.

Well ta ta for now am settling down to do more knitting!
