Celtic Summer: Week 21 and a new project

Made a fair bit of progress on my Celtic Summer this week and i'm quite pleased :)

Celtic Summer as she is now:


And i was having a bit of a clearout the other day and came across a All Our Yesterdays kit called First Post, i brought it a while back but the threads were unsorted and i hadn't been keen on sorting them lol as many were very similar but yesterday i sat down and sorted them and put in a couple of stitches and it will now be added amongst my WIPs and will post updates each week :)

UFO Thursday

Well pulled out my UFO 'Cleaning Can Wait' yesterday hoping to make some good progress on on it, got Caitlyn down for the night gave Chloe her bottle then added a few stitches however Chloe ended up very unsettled yesterday and seemed to only want to have mummy cuddles (which are seriously addictive for mummy too lol) so ended up spending alot more time cuddled up with Chloe then stitching but a couple of stitches got added so thats some progress lol better then none anyway

Mum's B&B: Week 14

I meant to post an update on this on Sunday but when i went to take a picture of it i couldnt find my camera, drove me mad searching for it, searched the whole flat with no luck, then yesterday as Mark carried our double buggy downstairs so we could go shopping he found it on the hood of the buggy of all places, the one place i hadnt thought to look lol but i'm just glad its been found as can't afford to replace it atm

This has annoyed and frustrated me this week as i had hoped to power through and have it finished so i can give to my mum as it is already very late, but yet again i have run out of blue and with only a little bit left to go aswell grr lol, will now have to wait until i can next get into town to get some more 

As it is now:
