Lots of crafting this weekend

It has been raining most of the weekend and the kids actually got their cross stitch out and were having so much fun.

 She's almost finished :D Just has to do the back stitch and it's going to look so pretty.

And sorry this photo is refusing to turn on it's side! This is Caiden's work. He has finally finished his Gene Simmons KISS cross stitch by cloudsfactory. Then in one day he finished the rocket raccoon by dork stitch. He's firing along and already started an iron man cross stitch.

I have also been stitching along and having an absolute ball. Though I can't show you my cross stitch it's a secret.

I can show you a sewing project I started and finished today :D I was so excited about this project I have been talking about making Lana a skirt all summer holidays but it was always so hard to get started. So instead I talked to my mother today and with her encouraging me and being the sounding board I managed to start and finish a skirt.

It's very very simple just some quilting fabric sewn selvedge to selvedge with a band added on the top and gathered in.

It looks so lovely on her, though she isn't happy in this photo because Caiden kept pushing into the photo.

Happy stitching,


  1. Your kids are brilliant cross stitchers! It must be nice to stitch together. Well done to you for making Lana a skirt too. It's really pretty, as is she!

  2. Lana is looking so lovely in her skirt..
    It's so sweet to stit together with your kids and stitch..
    Big hugs x

  3. Clever kids. The skirt is pretty:)

  4. Your kids are doing a fantastic job on their stitching Caitlin. The skirt is really cute.


  5. I love that your kids stitch too. Anything to stop them being boooooorrrrrrreeeedddddd all the time LOL.

    I am a big fan of Pratchett too, I am currently reading the entire Discworld series to my son as his bedtime story. He is 12 now and gets most of the humour! We are reaching the end of Moving Pictures at the moment which has been great fun.

    I love Death, especially having to do his voice but we haven't met Susan yet. Can't remember which book she first appears in.


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
