Nearly done!

I have almost finished stitching Achoo!
I have finished all the cross stitches and just finished all the half stitches last night. I stayed up three hours after Tabitha went to bed to finish off the half stitch and thought to myself I will probably regret it since she will be up in a few hours and she was!! I was pretty tired when I woke up this morning after not getting enough sleep. But it was worth it really as I only have the backstitch to complete. This is where Achoo is at now.

I've really enjoyed stitching this little guy, he is very cute. And he's not taken me that long either. Tabitha has been going to bed at a reasonable hour at night and it's given me time to stay up for an extra hour or two to do my own thing, which is normally stitching or scrapbooking. I really want to get this finished for Mum and Dad so I can start on my nephews birth sampler. My nephew Baxter was born on the 5th of March, he is so cute! Only 6 weeks behind Tabitha. It's been nice stitching of a night again as I find it very relaxing and it's time to myself.

Tabitha will be 11 weeks old on Sunday, now I believe when people say how quick time flies, it really does. I can't believe she will be 3 months old soon. I don't want her to grow up too quickly. Here is a photo I took of Tabitha this week.

She is very smiley. I am so in love with this little girl. We are off to her first real birthday party on Sunday, it's her cousins Heidi's third birthday party.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and of course happy stitching xx
I will post back when I've completed the backstitch.
