for everyone

Well I had a lovely day out with 2 of the ladies from the UK Cross Stitch Group on Friday.  We went to the Victoria and Albert museum in London, followed by the Science Museum.  It was lovely to meet people with a similar interest.

I finally made the half way point on my Kaba’a doors project – HURRAY – only took 46 weeks!!!  Also did a little bit on the steam train clock I am doing for my son.

I discovered this morning that he has helped me on another little project too.  I had taken out the little cross stitch house and left it by the side of my bed over the weekend.  My son decided he would help me by colouring in the chart, just like mummy  – and I hadn’t taken a copy of it  – aarrgh!!!

I’m glad you had a good get together! Sorry to hear about the unfortunate accident with your chart – but on the other hand, I’m sure he really did think he was helping!

It sounds like you had a great time! 🙂 Your train is coming along nice and it sounds like your chart is quite colorful now. ha ha

I managed to finish the seventh page of my kaba’a doors project this week so still going well.

My credit card took a bit of a bashing this week though.  I bought myself a lap stand, so I can sew more easily outside or in the bedroom.  I also bought a “Sampler Grab Bag” from  These were a special offer of £125 worth of sampler charts and accessories for £25, so quite a bargain.  It was pot luck what I received, but I received some lovely patterns, and it was quite exciting going through the package when it arrived.  I have uploaded pictures.  There are a few that I am not going to be stitching and I have put them in a separate “swap” album.  If anyone is interested in any of them, let me know.  I will post an updated picture of my steam train clock, when I have finished sewing tonight.

My husband’s wallet also got a rare outing this weekend.  We bought a new LCD TV (so he can watch the football!!!) and a new computer and all in one printer for me.

Just a quick update.  I’ve been really busy sorting, clearing and packing I haven’t had much time or energy for anything else.  I’ve packed my big project as I don’t think I will have the time or mental energy to concentrate on it at the moment.  But I have managed to finish the Steam Train clock for my son.

He was so pleased when I showed it to him this morning — he has been a bit miserable as he is a bit confused about what is going on and doesn’t like it that his toys are being packed away.  He keeps trying to get the boxes open to see if they are still there!  Anyway, just need to get a frame, I’ve got the clock mechanism already, and he will be able to hang it in his new bedroom.  I’ve put a couple of photos in my  2006 completed album.
