Kids, camera, coffee and cuddles!

How's that for alliteration?!! My old English teacher would be proud of me!

So, here I am...late again...I'm blaming it all on my kids. I was all set to take pictures on Friday, only to find that when my darling son had returned my camera, the batteries were exhausted (I know that feeling well! ). And since said son had pinched all the batteries for his xbox (or whatever) I was then left to hunt down the rechargeable batteries and charge them.....only to realize once the batteries were charged, that he had then gone off with the camera while he stayed at a friends house! Arghhh! I love him to bits, but I'm so counting the days till he goes back to uni!

So that's the kids and cameras, as for the Coffee and Cuddles...that's the name of the Margaret Sherry kitties design that I've been working on. I didn't get as much done on that as I had planned this week. I'm stitching it for my son's girlfriend, either as a birthday gift or a Christmas gift, but I had to put it out of sight as she was staying with us for a few days. This is how much I've got done so far.....


I was chomping at the bit to get it finished as I soooo want to see those little faces once I start the back stitching!

So, instead of sitting and twiddling my thumbs all week, I took out one of the kits in my stash and set to work on that.....



It's another dimensions kit so, as you can probably guess, I'm being really careful with the threads! Loving the colours in the sky....just not loving the different numbers of strands to be stitched with. The effect is nice and it will be gorgeous when finished.

Until next time...happy stitching!
