Well at last I have finished part 1 of Chatelaine St Petersburg, it's taken a while but has now enthused me to get on with the rest, however i'm working on Joe's Christmas Stocking at the moment, and waiting for the fabric and some more threads for my friends baby sampler..

I have also heard from my F&S partner Nicola that she received her squares so can now show them:

i adapted a pattern out of World of Cross Stitch, a mediterranean theme using yellows and blue and as i started it whilst on holiday in Menorca i thought it was very appropriate!

I would also like to thank Lynda for her Kreativ Blogger award - I will opt out of forwarding this on as I feel that I am pretty new to blogging but would direct you all to the blogs in my reader - as I read them all, I like them all lol!

I'm enjoying my few days off work - took the kids up to Glasgow last week to the Kelvingrove art musuem and museum of transport, they enjoyed themselves and then we headed back into Glasgow and stuffed ourselves at DiMaggio's (which kind of blew the whole cheap day out thing but was worth it lol!) , yesterday we headed down the beach for a walk and then dropped into Culzean which is a large country park just down the road from us as Joe loves the big park to play in. Today I think we are heading back down the beach as Neve wants to practice her bike riding while the sun is actually shining and might actually squeeze in a bit more stitching as well, I love being off work...


  1. Sounds like you had lots of fun. Hope the sun stays out so you can enjoy it some more. I can send it your way anytime you'd like. We're in the 90's with lots of sun today. Don't think we're even in for an afternoon thunderstorm today so it's HOT HOT HOT!

  2. A lovely finish!
    Hugs, Kelly FS

  3. Both look great-your squares sor of remind me of a Chatelaine too!
    Congrats on your award.

  4. Looks terrific!

  5. You're making great progress on your Chatelaine piece.

    Your F&S piece looks great. I am sure your exchange partner was very happy with it.


Thanks for stopping by!
