Isn;t he gorgeous!


I got a lovely surprise today when the postman brought me this gorgeous chart from Linda at Lavender Wings. I entered the door-prize competition at the online needlework show and I was over the moon to get a chance to choose a chart of my choice from Lavender Wings. Please check out Lindas great designs at www.lavenderwings.com , you will be spoilt for choice. I don't have any stichy cash right now so I am gonna have to stitch my Santa with what I have in my stash. I'm sure he will turn out to be just as cute though.
My week hasn;t got off to a great start as my little two year old mindee got sick on Monday and I had to get Mum come pick her up early. Mum also gave me notice as she has got a new job with shift works so she doesn't need me anymore. My four year old isn;t returning until Friday after being off for five weeks and my eight year old only attends eight hours a week now. Like everyone else out there the credit crunch is really hitting home now. I have had no enquiries in the past six weeks and I;m trying not to get myself into a tizzy about where I am gonna find the cash to pay next months bills. Having no kids to take care of though gives me free stitching time , I am nearly finished Just Add Snow a lizzie kate design and even though I want to stitch more ornaments I might just have to start on my long-legged Santa. Happy Stitching!

He IS a cutie (I bought this same pattern last winter, still have yet to stitch it, but one of these days!)

Enjoy!
