For a while now I have wanted to start blogging again - so here I am dipping my toes back in the water.
As Annabelle gets older I am starting to find a little more time to get back to stitching. At the moment I am working on Merry Christmas, My Deer from Country Cottage Needleworks. I was lucky enough to win a very generous gift voucher on Sharon's blog back in May and this is one of the designs I purchased with it.
A few days ago I saw the hashtag #nationalparksal on Instagram, which picqued my interest. A quick search and I found a sneak peek of the National Parks Birthday Club from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, and immediately knew that I was going to sign up. The first part was released today. I have the majority of threads required, but still need to decide on the fabric. Annabelle has already claimed it as her own. "What is it Mummy?" she asked. I told her it was a cross stitch chart and she said "Thank you... thank you".
Annabelle turned 3 in July. Definitely the fastest three years of my life! She's now going to kindy a few days a week. The kindy has a farmyard theme, so she even gets to ride the pony and feed the chickens. Such fun for her. Three is such a fantastic age, and I love the funny and sweet things she comes out with. Every time I pick her up from kindy she says "I love to see you Mummy". I never tire of hearing that. I always enjoy it when she brings home her creations too - this one last week was quite different than the usual paintings. A 3D tree!
The weekend is finally here. Hope you have a stitchy one!
