Before Jamie arrived I had been working on I Still Do, and felt I really made good progress this time. I managed the small square motif, the no. 40 and made a good start on the heart motif that goes round the number.
After finishing Jamie's gift I made a start on The Water Tiger, this one just looks blob like at the moment though when I compare it with the picture I can see where it is going. Its very very confetti so I think its going to need a lot of going to get in done for January next year. It looks quite a lot on the picture but in actual fact it is less that half a page of a nine page chart.
Yesterday I had a lovely day with my friend Colly stitching, chatting and doing a lot of laughing. I had to choose something to take with me to stitch and of decisions, decisions. The Village was too big, I Still Do on 36 count was definitely out, Water Tiger with all its confetti needed too much concentration and though the stuff was all ready for the birth sampler for baby two she had still not put in an appearance. In the end I decided to take Jasmine. She had been started way back in July last year but I only had the top of her head done then. She isn't very big and is a nice simple stitch so ideal to do while chatting and I carried on yesterday evening and did a little more.
At 7.15 I got the long awaited message that baby Amelia had finally arrived at 6.15 pm and Mum and baby were fine. A later call from her Granny told me that she is a lovely dinky little 6lbs 10oz and her second name was to be Chloe so I am now working on the birth sampler for her and will carry on with that until its done and out of the way. I have not done enough of that to show a picture yet but its a very girly, girly type design.
Thanks to each and everyone of your for visiting and reading my blog. A big thanks to all who leave comments (yes even the cheeky ones lol), they all mean so much and though I enjoy composing my little posts it makes it so much more fun when I know that there are a few of you out there reading them. On the reading of blogs - I am slowly getting through and catching up but my time on the computer has had to be greatly curtailed for health reasons and so please bear with me.
Hugs to you all
