More humphrey

I just wanted to thank everyone for your very kind comments about my feather fairy and stitching, it makes me happy and thanks for spending the time in looking at my blog to all my readers and my new followers too.

This week I have really enjoyed my stitching time of a night and I've finally been getting some good stitching progress in. I've really missed it and I've loved working on my sampler again. This is where I am up to with humphrey now.
I love this pattern and am enjoying my time stitching on it. I think it is because I love the colours so much since I am a lover of pastels and the pretty fabric. I am always itching to get home from work to do more. :-)

Today my husband Adrian and I went looking at cots and prams for our bub on the way and I came across a humphrey's corner cot which is white. That's the colour cot I want, it is so sweet and it would be so perfect for our nursery since I am cross stitching a humphrey's corner sampler. Adrian couldn't get over the smile on my face, but other than it being cute we have to look at other things of course with the price, how strong it is, how easy it is to operate etc..some cots were better than others. Anyway we had fun looking around and have narrowed down what prams we like and we left in a good mood until as we were leaving we backed into someone else's car by accident. The shop we were at is very hard to get out of and back onto the road and we were too far out on the oncoming traffic and a truck was heading our way so we reversed in a hurry only by a meter at the most and someone was very close to our car and bang! My bull bar went through the next persons car's bumper but there was no damage to my car. So it kind of put a dampner to our day, but at least no one was hurt at the end of the day.

I hope you have all had a nice weekend and happy stitching x


  1. Thank god you and your husband are okay, and no one was hurt. Your Humphrey piece is coming along nice, Belinda. It look so cute.

  2. Your stitching looks good, ref the car it's metal and insured, take care

  3. Glad no-one was hurt. Your stitching is coming along lovely.

  4. (((((hugs))))) Glad you are all ok hun :) Not a great way to end the day, but just remember the good parts instead. It's so exciting looking at furniture! :D Mind you, when you see something you love and you know it's just too expensive or not practical, it is a bit annoying. Can't wait to see your nursery :D

    Humphrey is looking great - I'm so happy for you that you have found some stitching time. You're definitely flying through it now! xxx

  5. Thank goodness neither of you were hurt! There are some parking lots where it's just impossible to back out. Sound like you got trapped in one.
    Humphey is looking great!
