More stitching

It's half term here in england and that means i have a hole week to sleep late, work, stitch and have some fun like the sleep over my sisters having on friday for her birthday. What could be more fun than seven 13 year olds, a 15 yearold and me lol (and cake).




So far i've finished one classics essay, done some stitching and read 136 pages of my new book 'The dead of Summer' by camilla way. The book has just started getting creepy and the stitching is starting to look like its meant to! lol

This is the unicorn my mum started a few years ago its quite hard to do it for more than a hour as its on black and its about five different shades of grey so it tends to give me a headache if i look at it too long!

I finished the fairy i started last week but still have not decided what to do with it lol.







And lastly is the progress i've made on the baby bee sampler i've just finished the J and im now on the P. I only have 16 letters left to go and then it's done!

have a nice half term,

You do some great stitching! They're all so cute. Take it slow with the unicorn on the black background and make sure you have really good lighting. Working on black is very hard on the eyes. Sometimes I feel like I can't see a thing at all when I'm sewing on black--it's like I'm stitching blind and just guessing what to do.

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…

Tutu Expensive!

OK my first post on the matter of saving money when you have a two year old that likes to shop (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!), Is about tutu's. Me and my daughter are taking a holiday in a few weeks with her grandparents to Devon and every year the site has a fancy dress competition. Now naturally I want my daughter to look the part so I ordered her a hand made tutu in the style of Cinderella, It drop kicked by bank balance by £38.50! now don't get me wrong its lush and I love it, but it got me wondering if I could do it myself. They would be perfect for Christmas presents for all her little friends and no doubt little miss is going to want a lot of dress up stuff too! So I looked to see if I could get the stuff and do it myself, and guess what? Of course I could! This tutu cost me £6.60 to make and I have enough fabric left over to do another!  Its made with Two 6inx 25yrd rolls of tulle one pink one purple and a waffle crochet top from china, found on eb…
