Firstly I have gave in and got the all the stuff for the Lavender and Lace In the arms of an Angel that I purchased the other month along with other bits.
I also got the afghan for the baby that I got myself all over exited to get and start on.
I've been looking at stitching some Margaret Sherry animals from the Cross Stitcher magazine on it. I think they are super cute for a baby but would be still something that you'd hopefully want to keep when older rather than it being really babyish. Only thing is I need to find a conversion for Anchor to DMC I only keep DMC in and I only switch brands when I have kits. Then its selecting which animals I want on it.
I have a few already picked out
- tortoise - current bumps nickname
- frog Vincent's nickname when he was a bump and now all the family buy him all manner of frog themed things oops think he'll not be impressed when he's older.
- Jungle animals off a room name plate
This also randomly snook into my basket
I have finished the rotation for Motherly devotion. So here's where it was up to last:
And after its 10 hours:
I finished the 10 hours last night and still had some time before bed so have made a start on some frogging on Tapestry Cat but this is going slow and I keep having flashes of just bodging it but then I get confused looking at where it is out - I mean I know where it starts to go out but if I was to pick a fudge point I get muddled as to where it would work out. Which at least gives me the strength to keep frogging as if I get confused every time I pick it up, I'm going to totally be better off with taking it back to the origin of the muck up. ~sigh~ and suck it up~ I think I might do a little more and then get my Margaret Sherry stuff in order for the blanket.
Seen as its bank holiday weekend I'm hoping to get some extra stitching done as well as having a bit of a spring clean/ more baby proofing for an increasingly inquisitive toddler. A nice bonus from having a few really hectic weeks at work - hoping it calms down when I go back but think it'll get worse until OFSTED has been.
Hope everyone else has a productive bank holiday
