Time flies..

It's been awhile since I've posted, but I have been cross stitching. Sometimes I just forget to blog about it and then when I do remember I don't have the time to do it etc..I have been keeping up with my blog reading though.
It is perfect cross stitching weather at the moment, we are now in Winter and the nights are cold. The days are too but I am normally out and about rugged up. I celebrated my birthday last week, the 6th of June. I was spoilt and was given lots of hobby goodies by my family. June is a nice time to have a birthday and sit inside creating things.  I've been swapping between cross stitch and scrapbooking, my hobbies that make me happy.
I have stitched quite a bit on my wedding sampler. For some reason I always thought the writing I would be stitching one day would be daunting and take lots of time, but surprisingly I have enjoyed stitching the writing and it's moving along fairly fast. Here is where I am up to.

If I keep up with the speed I am going with this one I think I could have it finished in no time.

I also wanted to share with you another creation. My nephew turned two last week and he is madly obsessed with cars (cars, and the character from the cars movie) so since I am the baker in the family, I decided on baking this cake. I was really happy with how it turned out, he thought it was pretty great too.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend,

happy stitching xx
