Finished Project

I have had a huge break from blogging but I am slowly getting back "into the groove".

I posted this picture - ages and ages ago asking for ideas of what I was planning to turn it into.

I dont think anyone guessed correctly - it was a bit tricky.

I eventually finished in the Christmas holidays - framing it the day before it was to be given as a first birthday present for my little great nephew.

I always work best to a near impossible deadline - I do it to myself nearly every project..... Why ???????

Anyway here is the grand reveal

I loved making this - I tend to stick to quite traditional images but loved the train - the little boy is 18 months now and loves tractors !!!!!! Oh well

Need to do another birth picture now for my other new nephew - any ideas ???

New Cath Kidston Book

Just discovered this new book that comes out on 1st October. I used to do cross stitch and needlepoint years ago but think this may encourage me to revisit the old skills.

Tried to read what it says on the front cover and I think it announces that it comes with all the materials to make the purse featured on the cover.

I know we are having lovely weather at the moment but it does make me look forward to the autumn.

Hey ..... two posts in twelve months - think I am returning slowly.......

Scruffy the puppy is doing really well - cant believe how quick he is growing - our oldest cat seems to quite like him but the younger one is still a bit unsure.

We've never had a dog before so its a bit new to all of us - any advice on stopping him "mouthing" (polite term for biting gently) greatly received.
