I can;t believe it is 21 years since we became parents for the first time. Our darling son Craig Ian Main was born at 7.59pm on Monday 31st July 1989. Please join with us on wishing him a Happy 21st. Hugs Lainey & Ian.

Only stitching I have done this week was to finish off this lovely Noel freebie design. As usual my blogger doesn;t show the true colours. The fabric is a mid chocolatey brown and the threads are a wine and beige colour. I am so behind on my stitching this month that I forgot about my monthly SAL I am doing with my dear friend Elaine. It was my turn to choose this months chart and with only 7 days left I haven;t found one yet. I think I may be spending some time in the naughty chair ..lol.
Thank you so much to the lovely Michelle who responded to my plea to trade for some fabric. She totally spoiled me with a lovely bundle of fabric in exhange for the cute snowman beaded kit. Please check the other kits in my last post and my stash blog to see if I can entice anyone else to trade with me. Laineys Stash Room
Thank you also to everyone on wishing me well with my employment situation. For those who don;t know I work from home as a Registered Childminder. Sadly on Wednesday Conor who has been with me for four years will be leaving. I will then only have two year old Leon in my care but he is supposed to be going soon as well. I guess it;s the way of the world just now and I do fear there will be much more unemployment to come for many in the near future.
I'm not quite sure how much stitching and computer time I will have in the next week. My baby boy Craig turns 21 next Saturday and I am spending most of my free time trying to put together a photograph album for him as well as trying to arrange a family party. I expect my withdrawal symptoms to kick in soon..lol. Enjoy the rest of your week-end. Hugs!

My postie brought me a lovely treat this week when I received this darling little bag that I was thrilled to win in Nia's recent give-away. It will be just perfect to carry my stitching projects in when I go out, so much prettier than the plastic bag I use just now.

Nothing much happening here really it has been a quiet week for me. I've only been working three mornings so I have had quite a lot of time to stitch. I am nearly finished an exchange piece and have made quite a bit of progress on Willow House by BBD.
