Catching up

Gosh its been a while since ive posted or read blogs. Will catch up! Regarding my previous post, the room is tidier you'll be pleased to know. Not super tidy, the weather has been too nice and when the weathers nice in Scotland you gotta make the most of it in case it doesnt happen again for a while LOL, but its tidier nevertheless.

So ive been busy out and about with Caleb and of course the inlaws were back for their final 10days here before returning to Canada yesterday. They were sad to leave.

Caleb is doing great. He has grown so much and those tiny baby days seem like ages ago now. He sleeps like an angel and all night which is amazing! Here we are
Ive been stitching too. Some more progress on his birth sampler which is nearly finished
And a new start, LHN's Always and Forever. Now i said i wouldnt start anything new until Caleb's sampler was finished but i couldnt resist (you know how it is) and its going to be a gift for someone so theres a date i need it done by. I love the colours of the chart but to buy one skein of the silk would be £5...err im on maternity leave i cant afford that, so i got a variegated DMC instead for 67p and i love the colour (DMC 4230)

Now my visitors have gone life can get back to normal and i'll get round to reading all my favourite blogs again :-)

Why do they have to get so big so fast??? It just isn't fair!

The birth sampler is really coming along!

Nicole said...

Beautiful picture of you and Caleb! He is such a sweetie! The birth sampler is looking great as well as your new start!

Kendra said...

Oh he is adorable! Newborns are sweet little things, but once they get a few months on them, babies get into that super cute stage. Glad to hear he's doing well...amazing how that makes you feel better too, huh? :-)

What a lovely photograph! Definitely one to frame. Caleb's birth sampler is looking great!

Lana said...

Caleb is adorable! Getting soooo big! Love the stitching...I am encouraged to see a mommy stitching...I fear that once I have babies there will be no more stitching...but maybe it won't be as bad as I think!

Rowyn said...

That's a lovely photo of the two of you. Glad to hear that Caleb is such a good baby. His sampler is looking great too, not too much more to go.

I know what you mean about the cost of threads. I enquired about some Belle Soie threads for a chart I have on order, and they were going to cost US$59. I am sure I can come up with some substitutes for a lot less.

What a cute picture of you and Caleb! They grow so fast! I keep telling Megan she needs to slow down and stay small so I can enjoy it longer.

Oh, what a cute little boy he is. It's obvious that he's doing great, sitting there with his mom.

Oh what a peach, he is growing so fast though. I did tell you the bad nights would soon pass and I am glad you are now getting a good nights sleep.

Stiching progress is great and you will soon be happy dancing.

Caleb and you are so beautiful, Cheryl. Thanks for the update pic. Your sampler is so sweet and I love the color blue you chose for your new piece. You're really coming out of that early baby time, and I hope you'll have more quiet time for yourself soon.
Hugs, Deb
