Is it me or are these popcorn patterns just wonderfully cute!, well my sister Chelsea seems to love them, so i decided for her birthday to stitch her one of the many designs she liked :)

I'm not completely sure were i got this design from, i think it was the cross-stitcher mag but i wouldn't bet my life on it :D. Anyway this one took me about 20 hours to complete and i improvised with the eyes because I'm useless at french knots so i used beads instead!

The pink ribbon edging took so long that i wasn't sure whether it would ever get done, and more than once i contemplated going out and just buying her a present but i stuck it out and I'm glad i did!

P.S. in the original post i asked for some help deciding what to do with the finished popcorn design and i would like to thank you all for your advice it was really appreciated

I never know what to make things into. I usually end up making frames. When i stitch for someone, I first think about what they would like. Do they need decorations? Do they have an item that you could stick the design onto? A photo album, a case, a bag?

BTW, your pictures are all blurry: take them in daylight (even if you're inside, but outside gives best results), with the macro setting, keep the camera at least 50 cm from the design, take your time and be calm so your hands won't move at all, and shoot. It will take loads of practice, don't worry.

If you can, use a scanner. No blurry pictures, and the colours remain true to the design (can't say that much for pictures I'm afraid)

Hi, welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! Looks like you've been busy. Don't worry about the photo's - you should have seen mine when I first started - at least you can tell what yours are - mine could have been anything!

Happy Halloween

Hi guys, Happy Halloween to you all :D

Little miss had a very fun day dressed as a kitty all day. then her grandad and auntie took her trick or treating for hour while mummy handed out sweeties to other little 'monsters'. I love Halloween just because you have an excuse to dress your little humans up all cute or scary for the fun of it.

I have no doubt that this wont be the one and olny time my daughter wears this dress as she had fun pretending to be a cat and wiggle her tail all day.

Hope you all had fun too

Till next time

Is Having To Much Spoiling My Childs Chance Of A Happy Future?

So tonight i have been completely awakened to a very real possibility, that i am unintentionally ruining my daughters chances of ever just being simply happy. No I'm not just beating myself up needlessly, i read a blog post tonight that made me take a good hard look at what I'm teaching my two year old without even realising it!

My daughter is two and already she has a bedroom full of toys, half of which i could throw away and she would never even notice and with Christmas coming up its bound to get worse! At home i very rarely see her play with one toy for more than 5 minutes before she's running of in search of something else and when i read this post by chance tonight, it made me wonder if she would take this habit and carry it with her for the rest of her life. Would she buy herself something nice only to want more because the first item is not enough?. Am i setting her up for a life of credit payments and living paycheck to paycheck?

I have seen this habit myself in m…
