Quick Update

Hello all, just a little update.
Been in the mood to get going on Plum Street Samplers ' Beloved '.

Here's where i was.

And now.

And started a 'Tatty Bear' Birth Sampler for Noah.

And out walking the other day met this fella. Don't know who was more scared him or me.

But a few shoo's and waving arms later he was on his merry way.

Noah's off to water babies tomorrow with his mum.
 Hopefully he will do better this time has last week he was the only one screaming the place down.

Tomorrow i'm off on my hols.
 Going on a cruise for the first time. We are going to Norway and Iceland.
Yep, that place that's having earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
Must of known we were coming.  ; )

Well that's it from me.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.

Back To Normal

Hello, its been a long time since my last post i know.

A couple of things have happened since i was last here.
Back in May my mother-in-law passed away. She had serious health problems and was a very heavy smoker and would not give up which didn't help but it was still a shock.. Then travelling over to London for the funeral through the night (we got the ferry) we stopped at a service station at Runcorn for a rest.When i woke up i just needed to get out of the car to stretch and that's when the fun begun. It turns out that i passed out and hit my forehead on the car door trying to hold on to something then just fell to the ground and hit the back of my head. I woke up not knowing what happened just lying there in the rain in the recovery position, when i heard someone say i thinks shes had a stroke, (was biting down on my lip at the time). That's when i came round big time and started talking and trying to get up. Ended up for the first time in my life in the back of the Ambulance with a lovely paramedic called Will. I know i said i wanted to see more of my home country but it wasn't from the back of a ambulance.
 Anyway after blood tests and htc tests no head scans has i didn't have pain first then pass out. and really bad headaches that gave me the attention span of a nat all is now good..

For a good while i couldn't be bothered with anything even though i had to finish off  'Dreams or Miracles' can't remember which one its called now.
 No blogging, cross stitch or reading which is my other big love.
 Just lost of walks and taking it easy.
Not to mention lots of visits from the lovely Noah himself who is now a whole 4 months and a whopping 13lbs and such a happy little soul with the cutest lopsided smile and now sleeping through the night.

Hope i haven't bored you to much and your still there.

Now the sewing stuff.

Now i have my stitching bug back big time i finally got around to finishing
Nathalie's Lovely Sal.

Next time i hope to have another wip
finished off.

Thanks for stopping by and looking.

New Stash And A Couple Of Pic's

Hello all, 
Its been just over a month since my last post and it has flown by.
Thank You all so much for your lovely comments and best wishes.
Noah is now at home and doing great.
He's now nearly 5.5lb and feeding like a good'en.  : )

Not hardly stitched at all but now getting back into the swing of things now that everything is settling down and no more running backwards and forwards to the hospital.

While no stitching was being done i did treat myself to some goodies.

Then i got my act together and finally made a little something with the Eiffel Tower that i made for DD a couple of years ago. I'm a great one for sewing things and then putting them away to get framed and then leaving them, thinking i will give it a go at framing them myself.

Wanted to finish it off with some Navy ribbon to make a little hanger but has usual everything but that colour.
Just has well DD liked it just the way it was.  : )

And lastly some pic's of Noah.

We still have the crib we had for his dad and Auntie.
It has a skirt that goes round the outside put is more trouble than its worth, always falling down.  ; )

The Teddy is nearly bigger then Noah.

He has a nice set of wheels.

He sleeps in this better than in the crib. Maybe because it tips up slightly like the incubator he was in.

He looks huge, but believe me he's still tiny.

Anyway that's all from me.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.

He's Here Hes Here

Hello folks,
Yesterday was the best day ever.
First Grandchild arrived 6 weeks early by c-section due to the fact he was small has the placenta was failing, but hes nice and sturdy and healthy and bigger then expected.
We got to see him straight after he was born has they stopped for a couple of sec's to show him to us has they wheeled him off  to the premature baby unit.
When Luke saw him last thing last night he was on his back and his oxygen turned down has he was breathing near enough like a full term baby.

Born 2 April at 15.31 weighing 4.5 lb

Still cant believe hes here.  : )

Hermit Weekend

Hello folks, hope you are all keeping well.

Had a nice surprise. 
Sister-in-law and her daughter flew over for the Paddy weekend. We had a great time catching up and other stuff.  : )
 Its times like these that i wish i knew they were coming and would have got stuck in with Miracles sooner and she might have been able to take it home with her.  ; )

But i have kept my promise to myself to keep going with Miracles and try and get it finished for her Birthday.  ; )

So for the Hermit Weekend i finished off the left panel.

It was only when finishing the panel that i could make out what it was i was sewing, has the colours were all just a blend of blues and the photo of it on the kit i could only make out the house.

And for being good finishing off the above i started the final part of Nathalie's sal.
It's so nice to be using colourful threads after so many blues.

Love the out line of the flower on the side of the house.

I'm going to finish off the house then its back to Miracles.  : (

To see how everyone got on with their Hermit Weekend check out  Joyce's Blog

Well that's all from me folks,
Thanks for stopping by and looking.
