Have I Misled You....

It certainly was not intentional but I have to set the record straight. Neither of the two new babies I am stitching for are related to me in anything other than friendship. Jamie is the son of my DD's best friend and Amelia is the Grand-daughter of my dear friend Lesley. I would love one of them to have been a new grandchild for me but that seems highly unlikely so I will just have to make the most of our darling Ozzie.

I did not stitch a birth sampler for Jamie (my usual baby gift) because I knew my daughter was doing one, hence the towel and bib set.

Amelias birth sampler is now over half done so I thought I would share a progress pic.

I am using just normal DMC threads for this though I have added a little twinkly thread to the petticoat of the girl in blue.

Nothing much to tell at the moment. My mum has been poorly and I have been at her house everyday, but she is now well on the mend so I am hoping that next week I will get a little time to get my house clean and tidy and get everything ready for going down to Andover at the weekend.

may all your frogs stay in their ponds.

Nope, not misled at all! The stitching is lovely too. So sorry your dear mum is feeling poorly. I will keep her and you also in my prayers.

Your little ballerina piece is just so sweet.
Hope mum is feeling better soon.
