2 Trips to A&E

Well my day started off well, got up, the kids were fed and dressed for school, got back and hubby announced that he had to go to the Eye Hospital as he had scratched his eye with his contact lens.  That was a 2 hour trip in total

Trip 2, this afternoon I went of to my friend Jackies house as they wanted to go and see her children, we left just after 5, and as we walked to the car, Guy fell over and he announced that his chin was bleeding, thank god for Jackie as she is a nurse.

We ended up in Childrens A&E for 5 hours in total, am totally knackered now.

Jewels HD and a WIP

Here is Jewels finally finished.  I finished at about 5:30ish yesterday, and have been waiting to get home to put on here lol.

Stitched on 36ct Antique White Linen, a Dimensions Gold Collection Kit, started 11th August 2008 – Finished 1st November 2008.

My next piece is called Fast Asleep, I haven’t stitched on this one in over a yr and have picked it up again.  I visited Karen twice whilst I was away and said I would finish it, and started on it again last night.  So here it is soo far, gonna crack on with it tonight and for a few more days and then I shall work on Celtic Summer. 

I have done about 50 stitches on it to date, but only took a pic this afternoon, before leaving Karens earlier today.

Karen thanks for having us on Thursday and Today, the boys had a great time with Riley and hope that he sleeps for you tonight.  Here is a pic of the 3 of them together

Thanks for looking.
