Busy day

Had a busy, productive, good day today. I hung out 2 loads of washing, then we went to church, then the 3 of us went and had lunch outside at a nice restaurant that has outside heaters (because the hot weather has gone), came home and baked a banana loaf, brought my washing in, put my washing away, put another load in, emptied the dishwasher, washed and sterilised bottles. Tonight i plan on sitting on my butt, scoffing my banana loaf, watching the apprentice final on tv and stitching....of course that plan involves Caleb being a good boy and going to bed early!

So, now Caleb' s sampler is finished i could work on one of my many wips (oh so many wips) but then i read Hazel's blog and now i just have to start this, which i know you've probably all seen by now but im always behind in blogworld. Gorgeous eh? Im gonna order my linen this week!

Barbara's comment on my last post made me laugh. Yes it was brave to let Caleb hold the sampler but believe me i was quick in taking the photo...and i was worried about him puking or drooling all over it!

A mum's work is never done, lol! I never make plans to stitch these days, because I think Amelie has a sixth sense and knows this and plays up so I miss out on stitching time.

I love this sampler as well, but I just don't think I will have time to start it.

I must admit my first thought when I saw the photo of Caleb holding the sampler was what if he chewed on it or drooled on it. I know that Amelie would definitely do both.

Speed photography - a very valuable talent when you have kids! LOL!

I'm tired just reading this! I want to do this SAL too but doubt I will get to start it any time in the near future!

You sure did have a busy day. I hope you got to relax in the evening.

Yay, you are going to stitch Mary Wigham too. It's probably going to take me years to stitch it - but I'm going to start anyway. It's just so pretty! I will look forward to your first progress pic.

Isn't it satisfying to get so much done? Doubly good when a little man is around. Ooo have been trying so hard NOT to start that piece - not sure I'll be able to hold out if you start posting WIP pics! :0)

I'll stitch Mary Wigham, too, but not now but in the near future. I plan on ordering the Vikki Clayton silks for her. Looking forward to seeing your first stitches on this sampler.

Every day is a busy day for us mums eh!! I also love this sampler but have had to tell myself no as I have too many other WIPs on the go!!
