My DS, Aaron, is now on school holidays and I love having him around! There are eight years difference between my two children and finding activities for them to share... or work in conjunction with... can sometimes be a challenge :-) Baking in the kitchen is a sure winner; and "Hide and Seek" always has me and Aaron in giggles when Four year-old Rosie announces her whereabouts before we go looking for her!
There will be lots of crafting activities as always, and I will get some designing and stitching "in" when I can grab the time! As I am doing a lot of this at the moment, dear ole' Mr SUDS has taken on extra household duties, and I don't know what I'd do without him! :-)
I am very excited because I have a number of designs in various stages at the moment, and I can't wait to share them with you!
And talking of sharing, two beautiful ladies have shared their renditions of my free design, "A House in the Country"...
This is Peg's version, and isn't it a cutie? I love the red polka dot fabric and how the colour ties in nicely to the central attraction of the house button. It's so cute, Peg! Thanks for sharing!!
Mai found the perfect house button for her stitchery which she put in this beautiful rustic frame. It's such a quick little project that Mai took her stitching on holiday with her and completed it at the poolside! Thank you too Mai, for sharing!!
Have you downloaded my free pattern and started stitching yet? If so, I'd love to see your finished items and post your photos on my blog. (If you want me to!)
