weekend of surf and stiching

It was just like summer again this weekend down in Cornwall. And just when i had packed up my summer dresses and pulled out all the knitwear.
My kids have been evil though with suspected winter bugs on the way.
However a bit of sea air did the world of good for them and before i new it i was suspecting that i had been taken for a ride. realising that i am a complete sucker for them and will believe they have a deadly flu with the slightest sniffle.
My kids have obviously used this to there advantage and have had chocolate and all sorts of treats out of me by playing ill.
Do these look like sick kids..............i think not........................?

I have also started on a quilted bed cover made from all of Fins and Merry's old baby clothes. I just couldn't part with some of there less stained baby outfits so thought this would be a better solution.
Will this be completed ? only time will tell, i am feeling hopeful of this one though.

crash course cross stitch

After going to a stitch up gathering at our local pub with some friends I was given a crash course in cross stitch.

Well it has totally got me hooked and I have more ideas than one person can cope with.

I started with this necklace which I have sewn freestyle and I am now working on a Japanese cushion pattern and some Christmas decorations.

I always do this when I discover a new craft.

I tend to run with things before I can walk and I know I wont stop until I have at least 5 unfinished projects on the go.
