I'm so sorry for posting my TUSAL for March late, but I had an issue with the camera......I lost it and have only just found it so thought I had better get the pics done now before I completely forget again haha.

Here are my ort's for March.

Lots of ort's from Charlie Bear SAL and Autumn Fairy
Hopefully next time I will be on time with posting my TUSAL posts

Charlie Bear SAL - Weekend 9

Hello everyone, well as promised here is an updated pic of Charlie after stitching on him on Friday and Saturday.

Hopefully  next weekend I will be able to finish of the letter E and redo the backstitch on the letter D and then I can start on the next row :) I'm loving stitching this with my friend Heather, it is fab.

Happy Mother's Day for yesterday my fellow UK stitchers

Well hello everyone! What a lovely day it is today.  The sun is out and I have a few updates for you.

First up is the goodies I received for Mother's Day yesterday from my lovely children.

That large purple card in the top left is from my daughter (made in school) and inside is a list of 10 of mummy's favourite things, the gift she made me is in the bottom ride hand corner (made in school), it is a lovely heart hanger which has been stuffed with wool and also contains lots of lavender (my favourite smell of all) which she then stitched closed herself.  The card on the top right is from both my babies and my little boy made this lovely little hanger (made in school).  I now have them all displayed and I will be keeping them up for a long long time.

Here are a few close-ups of the hangers:

I love the background on this (made using washing up liquid mixed with red paint) and the poem is just smashing :D
This was made by my daughter who stitched this closed and was so pleased with herself.  The top half is stuffed with lavender - my favourite.
These are all the goodies I received and I had a great day even though I didn't stop cleaning all day hehe.

Charlie Bear SAL - Weekend 8

Wow! I cannot believe I forgot to post my progress on my Charlie Bear SAL after stitching last weekend.  I didn't get much stitched on it last weekend, but here is how it is looking now.

Hopefully this weekend will see me finish the letter D bear and complete the back stitching on him.

I hope you are all keeping well.  Hopefully I will have more progress to show you on Monday after my weekend of stitching.

March 6th 2012 - What a weekend/week it has been

Wow!! I can't believe we are in March already, where has the time gone?!  It is coming up to my 7th Wedding Anniversary and it still feels like yesterday we got married, time sure does fly by these days.  On the personal front I do have a bit of news.  On Monday morning I found out that I was expecting number 3 :D What a bit of news to find out just days before 7th Anniversary.  As you can imagine, I am over the moon, now starts the planning and clearing out ready to start buying in new stuff for the new addition.

On the stitching front, I have managed more work on 2 projects: Charlie Bear SAL and Autumn Fairy.

I spent Friday/Saturday doing all the backstitch on the letters I've done for the Charlie Bear SAL and I have to say it has made these little bears just come to life, they are so so adorable.  Here is how Charlie Bear is looking:

Don't they just look adorable?!

I am also please to say that I am now on the homestretch of Autumn Fairy.  I only have the wings to stitch up and then I can start on the backstitch and bead adding :)  She looks sooooo much better stitched up than it shows in the magazine pictures.  Here she is:

At the moment that is all the news/updates that I have.  Now I just need to find a nice anniversary card/gift for my hubby and this weekend will be great :D

Until next time, I hope you all enjoy your days doing whatever you do best :) xXx
