Busy week

Hey, busy week for me, trying to get everything done at the start as I'm away for a Hen weekend Friday-Woo hoo can't wait!!
Only bonus would be if I was able to move, have trapped a nerve and am now walking like a little ol'lady-I'm sure a hot tub and alcohol may help!
Did I mention I joined the boys school's PTA, and yes I somehow managed to become Chair in quick succession, AGM tonight so not alot of time left for blogging, will be back later with some picks of my xmas bunting and the new design.

It's raining, it's pouring...but I'm not snoring

Well this week has consisted of me trying to get frog design finished and getting some new ideas layed down. I must admit the weather is making it a hard slog as it's cold, gloomy and wet not really lending itself to working!!!

Today has poured nearly all day, me and the boys looked like drowned rats getting to school and we just missed the down pour on the way home. A visit to the dentist made me smile when my youngest put on the glasses they give you, then asked what the water was used for, the dentist replies "for swilling out" which then resulted in my eldest saying why is the water dripping over the top???One panicked dentist later, realises he has a blockage and the swill out bowl is over flowing on the floor!! Lol.

On a lighter front, have included some images of designs that have gone to print and sold through Etsy of mine. Thought it would add a bit of colour to the day.

Hop little froggies

Have spent the morning selling cupcakes with my sister in aid of the local children's ward at the hospital, we made 94 cakes and sold 90, so not a bad days work. Am one very proud big sister, who loves sampling the cupcake delights that my sis cooks up-think sprinkles and frosting are a fab combination!!

New froggie design in the process, have been working on it on and off all week, just a couple of tweaks and it'll be there.

Bit of a funny day, my eldest is not going into school well at the mo, lots of tears which is not a great combination for either him or me first thing in the morning. Trying to get to the bottom of it, new teacher and some kind of "cloud"system which monitors whether they're behaving is possibley to blame???

Roll on Friday, looking forward to a Bonfir party with good friends xx

Designing here I come.........

Well, what a mad few weeks.

I have officially got my designing head back on, the designer shoes are back on lol!!!

Thrown in at the deep end with a commission, which was great-a bit nerve racking but it was ok in the end, and a design sale in NY. WHat more can i say, I'm bursting with pride and can't wait to get a bit more time to concentrate on new layouts.

For the time being i'm making do with drawing ideas when i can, with a very helpful 4yr old who also likes to do his designing as well- ha ha!

Will keep you posted!

Checking in..........

Soooooooo, my creative juices are not flowing at the mo but I'm loving looking at other peoples blogs, hoping to be inspired very soon!!!

Things are all ok in the Stitching household, boys enjoying Summer and popping down the allotment which is providing us with lots of yummy veggies. On the downside have had bad news concerning a friend, who I'm very worried about and a little nephew who is poorly.

Works busy and my outlet for being a grown-up rather than just Mum!! Looking forward to some baking with my boys this weekend, will post some piccies.

Have a great weekend xx

Long time no see...

Well hello there,
Long time no see. I've been a busy bee trying to get myself, the house and my work in order. I'm now feeling better and have been enjoying the wonderful sunshine with my boys!! The allotment is thriving and i have one very happy husband and 2 little boys that enjoy picking veggies for their tea.

On a sad note I have finally admitted defeat with my design work, its just not happening and I think I've finally realised that there is more to life and I really don't have to feel guilty that
1) The ideas are not coming
2) Working to deadlines that make not only me but the whole household stressed
3) That I may never design for an agent again?!?

Sooooooooo, I started Usborne books which was great but still not really paying the bills so I'm now working behind a bar/restaurant, working set hours, with a boss and I leave all the problems there when I finish. It's quite a relief not being my own boss, yes I enjoyed it but it's non-stop and does take over family life!

So there it is, I have had a good clear out of my fabric store and have listed them in bundles on e-bay, pop across if you want to grab a bargain http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=150358761206 Hope i've done this link right, any probs drop me a line.

Take care and I look forward to hearing from my bloggy friends xx
