I'm still here, anyone miss me? :-)

Hi everyone,

that's if I have any followers left? probably not since I last posted in April this year. Where has 5 months gone? I can't believe it's been that long.
Well, I can believe it's been that long since I last posted, I've had my hands full the last 5 months. I've been spending all that time with the love of my life, my beautiful daughter Tabitha. She is 7 months old now and growing every day. She's so much fun and I am loving being a Mum and able to spend time with her to see her grow and learn new things every day. Time really does fly when you're a Mum (as I'm sure it does when you're not a Mum either, haha) but it really does!

I've been floating around on blogger and checking up on all your beautiful stitching, haven't had much time to post but I have been stitching a little here and there. I made it to the last stitchy meet my friends held, hadn't been to one in quite a few months, so that was fun and I did some stitching. Currently I am stitching my nephew a birth sampler, it's a tatty teddy one called powder baby, he is sweet. I am close to almost finishing the cross stitching so will soon start on the backstitching. After this sampler I will start on my other nephew's birth sampler, who was born in June. I have yet to pick one.
I gave my parents 'Achoo' all stitched and framed and they loved him! He is now sitting proud as punch on their lounge room wall. The framing I chose, compliments their lounge room really well too, so I picked well. I'm glad I found a nice home for him.
My plan for my stitching is, after I have stitched the two birth samplers I want to stitch my husband a wedding anniversary gift. Our 2nd year anniversary will be coming up in March next year and the traditional present is to give each other a gift symbolising cotton. So I wanted to stitch him a gorgeous pattern I've had my eye on for ages called 'to the moon and back' by Waxing moon designs. It's not too big, so I think I can handle it. We will see. :-)
Amongst all my stitching I am scrapbooking an album for Tabitha which I am also loving. There is not enough hours in the day for hobbies, and as much as I would love to stitch all night, sleep wins hands down. :-) Haha.

I will get myself moving onto taking some recent pictures to show you, but at this stage I just wanted to let you know I'm still here and stitching slowly. It's always nice to see what you have all been stitching too, will post again soon.

For now, happy stitching.
