We've enjoyed two new DVD's this week, "Into the Woods" ...a teensy bit surreal but all the singing just entrances the Angels and Esther particularly loved it! "Big Hero 6" was fun, which surprised me for some reason and was quite good. I love DVD's as much as the Angels .. not necessarily to sit and watch but because they can give me little pockets of free time to bob in and out of the room and potter whilst the Angels are been entertained and occupied :)
This week I've managed to potter with these yummies...
I've also completed a small cross stitch design by ... Little House Needleworks -"Hands to Work"
I enjoyed this sooo much I decided to do a second one as a gift for a friend :)
My little online shopping order for Abigael arrived this week too...
The fabric, threads and pattern for... "Sampler Hill" by Country Stitches. I'm tweaking this design just a little bit, Abi wanted a Wedding Sampler but couldn't really find anything she really, really liked, then we spotted this sweet design and it had all the elements she loves ...a house on a hill, the little couple, birds and trees :) It's not a traditional Wedding Sampler, but it is what Abi liked so where the alphabet is in the hill I'll tweak it to show Abi and Nathan's names and their marriage date. I'm hoping to have it stitched in time for their first Anniversary ..but it could well be a Christmas present ..hahaha
Not too bad for a not-so-slow week :) The Angels are due to have a weekend stay at Maplewood, the respite home, on Saturday and Sunday night. As usual I'm a little anxious about it especially as they are back at school on the Monday morning and I won't get to see them until after school ... it does make for a nice break, and I don't mean to sound ungrateful but I do miss them and the house is really quiet with just hubby and I ... it's silly really, I should be enjoying these little breaks whilst we still have them. I'll just have to get the sewing basket out and prep more woolly kits and probably make a start on Abi's sampler, keep myself busy and occupied :)
Well this old/seasoned Mummy is all pooped out, time for Angels and I to go to bed and hopefully sleep ... fingers crossed all that running around today has tired us all out! :)
