The boyfriend is evil...

And very distracting. Haha.
Hey guys, just a quick post to say that there will be no post...well, now there is but you get what I mean. The boyfriend has been a huge distraction and he's been making me play video games. ;)
Hopefully there will be progress for next weeks post! I hope you all got more done than I did!
Until next time,

Cookies, fun and stitching.

Hello Again!
What a week! We've been all go this week and the weekend wasn't much different. I won't bore you with our schedule but I will show you some photos of the DS enjoying himself and the cookies he helped me make today.

He's a bit of a dork. I have no idea where he gets it. ;)
The week wasn't very busy for one of us though.

It's safe to say that someone has settled in very well and is one very happy and spoilt Kitty.

Now to stitching! I only worked on Halloween town this week and while I didn't get as much as I would have liked done, I did manage to finish the left hand side I was working on. Here are some progress shots and the piece so far.

Ta-da! :) Not too bad if I do say so myself.
Well that's all for today!
Thank you for reading and commenting!
Until next time,

2 year olds...

I have decided to move my 'regular weekly post' from Friday to Sunday as I have been late the last few posts. This is mainly because the BF and I do mushy couple-y things on a Friday night like stay in and watch movies or go out for dinner. So, as to not be constantly late, I shall just move the days around. :)

So, 2 year olds...Am I right? I love my son. So much. BUT, there are times when I love him a smidgen less. I know there are some of you out there who will understand what I mean.
At the start of the week my...lovely...Son threw a tantrum to end all tantrums. It was a scream fest and I had to do everything in my power not to join in with the screaming. Well, when I thought he had settled down, I turned my back to clean up some of the mess he had made and he decided to 'Dance' on my closed laptop. Yes, I had stupidly left it on the floor besides the couch and when my DS saw it he knew what he had to do to make me really mad. Well, I deserve an award because I took one long, deep breath, removed him from the laptop very gently, explained in a calm voice that he was in trouble and proceeded to open the lid to asses the damage. Well, my screen now looks like a Pablo Picasso piece of art. :(
It is ruined. To make it worse, I use it when stitching to blow up the charts. So naturally, I was unable to stitch for a few days. Thankfully, the clever BF came to the rescue and hooked me up to a separate monitor until I can afford to fix it. Kids. Got to love them...

Anyway, on to stitching. Not too much was done. This is all I managed on 'Halloween Town'.

I only managed to fill in the windows of the bakery. Tomorrow is a public holiday though so I'll try and get more done on this as I would really like to finish it in the next week or so.

I did also make a small start on my massive Pokemon project after I unpicked what was previously on the fabric. Here is what I managed.

Again, not a whole lot.
Well, sorry for being so rambly tonight and not having much progress. My DS and I are back on speaking terms after his performance and Sebastian has settled into the house really well.
