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.
Thank you all for reading and commenting.
Until next time,


  1. Two year olds are tough and tiring work. Mine threw her first tantrum recently because I asked if she wanted milk, water or yogurt... she proceeded to lie on the floor for a good 10 minutes having a tantrum. I left her to it! Mind boggling. :-)

    Your Halloween Town is looking awesome. Great choice of fabric for it.

  2. Lovely stitching Nel.


  3. Your work is so detailed! It's obviously worthy stitching, but I think it took you so much time to do it, didn't it? I sent my works to to win the stitching parcel, and I'm waiting for the results!
    xo, Judith
