My Baby Boy

... is 36 today - Happy Birthday David.
Gosh am I old enough to have a child that age lol.

Just look at the photo, Keith's sideburns put it right in the 60s/70s lol and dont we look young. Oh my where did all those years go? I really don't feel any older - though my bones do some mornings. Its a good job its not a full length picture as I think that dress only barely covered my underwear lol.

On the stitching front I thought I would post an update of Charlotte as I had so many kind comments about her. There is not a lot left to do now but it will take a while I think as its like stitching confetti.
I think I am going to be stitching Queen of the Needle on Sunday this week. With Monday being Christmas eve I really don't know what we will be doing or who may be dropping in and I really dont want to miss my week on this one as I am enjoying it so much.
Thank you for all the lovely comment about Oscars card, he is coming tomorrow until Christmas eve morning so will let him read them all for himself. I am sure he will be thrilled with all your kind compliments.
Also thanks for the lovely comments on my Christmas sampler, Shiona was thrilled with it and couldn't believe I had stitched it in only 5 days, come to think of it I find it hard to believe myself as I am not the quickest of stitchers.
I will try and post an update picture of Queen on Monday but just in case I dont get chance to get back here again before the big day I would like to wish each and everyone of you a Wonderful and Peaceful Christmas with those you love and hold dear in your life.

Aww, just look at that photo! How lovely is that? :o)

Charlotte is looking great. That's a great hat she's wearing.

Sorry I missed sending David greetings. I know how you feel, my youngest will be 30 in January and it really makes me feel old.

Re the Crystal bauble, have a look back at my Rambles and you will see one of the first ones I made, I've made them in purple (of course) since then but keep going back to the white crystal. I learned how to make them at an EG Regional Day and have made several since then as they are quite quick to make.

Charlotte is beautiful and looks lovely in green (my favourite colour!) I love seeing all your projects, especially as I am making no progress with my own at the moment.

LOL! I am still laughing about the panties comment...LOL!
Your wee little boy was quite handsome and I'm sure he adores his Mum now as he did then :)
Happy Birthday David!

Charlotte is just beautiful...I'm anxious to see her finished!

Happy Birthday to David. Love the photo!

Charlotte is coming along really well. Looking forward to seeing your progress on QOTN but it may well not be until after Christmas. Don't think I'll get chance to check blogs tomorrow as I disappear under preparing veg etc!

Have a wonderful Christmas!

I read your blog but don't leave comments. My 'little boy', also called David, had a 24th birthday last week! Merry Christmas & Happy new year.
