ATW80 and Birds

Is it just me or has the weather gone mental these days?
It was a lovely, around 12C, then as soon as I got home from weekly groceries, a hailstone storm, and now temperature has dropped below 2C. No wonder I have a cold and my little boy is suffering with ashtma attacks.


Finished part 9 on my ATW80. This was so quick and fun. One afternoon, thats all it took!!! Very proud of myself. Even my lazy daisy stitches look better on this part.

Last night I finished Part 2 on Angie Sampler called Birds. Im using the colours recommended on pattern. She is not sending next part til 25/feb so lots of time to work on other projects now.

Birds Sampler - Part 1/2

Im hoping to start my HAED this week but not sure if I will be able to. I wish my days had 30hours and my son would sleep for those extra hours, so I could just seat and stitch to my own content. It's so hard when you are trying to stitch and little hands are trying very hard to get the magnetic from the fabric because 'they are magic coins that stick to the hot wheels cars'.

Talk soon ladies



  1. Both your SAL's are looking great.
    Good luck with the HAED, will have to have a go at one myself one day. Looking forward to seeing the progress.
    I was thinking of inventing one of those stop watches that stops time for you, not working so far though ;-)

    1. Hi Elaine. Thanks for your comment. I am in need of that stop watch alright :) Either that, or I will have to get use to have only 4 hours sleep.

  2. Beautiful stitching! I love your son's remark about the magnets. It made me laugh! : )
