I've been slack with my posts lately, i know. But i've been busy chasing a little one year old around - boy i'd forgotten how much toddlers keep you on your toes! She's into everything at the moment. As i mentioned above, i've also been cross-stitching - i was sorting through some stuff the other day & came across this project i started almost seven years ago. I was nearly due to have Chas when i began it & then when he was born, well.........cross-stitch got shoved into a cupboard & forgotten about! Now, three kids later, i'm giving it another go - i don't care that cross-stitch may be 'dorky', i'm really enjoying it. I find sitting with a needle & thread very relaxing. What about you? What have you been up to?


  1. I have been missing my "frankly" updates! Happy mail has started (not sure of finish date), butterfly cushion coming along nicely (will email a photo soon), began collecting project ideas and patterns, went through some necklaces I made and forgot about. Thats a sample what I have been up to. xo

  2. oh no, cross stitching is not 'dorky' and if it helps you relax, all the better.

  3. Love hearing about all the things you have to say...missing you and our chats. I have been busy chasing after 4 kids every day, but I love it, can't wait till my couse to start now. Also, me and India made those button biscuits yesterday... didn't quite as good as yours! Hope you aren't still feeling forgotten. xxx

  4. Oh my I love the link for the rolled fabric flowers! I can't wait to made some! Fab, thank you!
