A home required

Yesterday definitely didn't go to plan. By the time the ironing was done, paperwork sorted and filed, lost letter found, children fed and my bath had, it was already mid afternoon. So much for a full stitching day! By that time, I felt so fatigued due to a week of bad nights, it was very difficult to build up any enthusiasm to do anything.
I ended up rethinking my food and drink exchange piece. I just wasn't happy with my first choice and really couldn't build up any desire to stitch on it. However, now I have chosen something else, the cross stitch is complete, the back stitch done and it is waiting for making up. I will do this during the day today. There are a few other bits to get together for this, but I have a few weeks to do that.

I am now hoping that today will be my full stitching day. I have a couple of projects in mind and it is looking good so far.

As I was searching through paperwork, I found these.
When the boys were smaller, I would use leftover wool from knitting jumpers to make baby and toddler items. These never found a new home, they got put away and forgotten as everyone I knew that was expecting, ended up having girls.If anyone would like to give these a home, I will finish sewing in the ends and will happily send them to you. They can be for your own child, or as a gift for someone you know. I will be happy knowing someone is using them.

I can't remember the size, but I think it is upwards of 3 months.

If you would like them, or know someone that would, please leave me a message. If there are more than one person interested, I will put all the names into a hat and get the boys to draw a name on Saturday.

If you know a little girl, keep watching this space. I have something that might interest you coming up in a couple of days.

They're adorable. I don't know anyone having a baby soon, but I do know it'll be winter soon in Australia, and the areas hit by fires get snow.
