First and long post of 2012!

I'm not one for making resolutions as I don't normally keep them, but I'm really going to try this year to post more often and also to comment. I thought it wasn't going to happen though, I took some pictures and then went to download them on the computer only to find that the camera lead had broken. Thankfully my dear husband fix it for me, so I good to go.
I thought I might start today's post with some pictures of my children as I've never shown any before. These were taken last September when we went on holiday with my parents. First up is Bryn, he is the eldest and will be 9 in March (I can't believe how quick he's growing) and then there is Niamh and she's 5.

The next picture is of my cheeky chappies the twins, Evan (in the orange top) and Noah (in the blue top).
They are currently 2 and a half.

And last but not least is Harriet who turned 1 in December, she really is a happy content child. She's sat on my mum's knee eating chocolate ice cream.

On  a stitching note I finished 'Rosey' by LHN at the beginning of last year. I knew at once that it would be perfect for Harriet as her middle name is Rose and they have matching dark hair.

As I mentioned in my previous post that Ineke was kind enough to lend me her copy of 'Autumn Leaves' by Prairie Schooler. I loved stitching this, although you can't really tell from the picture I did it on Lakeside Linens Vintage Buttercream, it really does give it a rich feeling and complements the DMC colors perfectly.

Finally if your still reading this rather long post (thank you) this is my progress on Lizzie Kate's '6 Fat Men', again I'm using the recommended fabric and threads.

I hope everyone is taking care of themselves and that the weather is being kind to you, and I hope to see you all again soon.
