Catching up .

Hi everyone .
On Thursday 5Th Jan I got myself a serious case of Stitch Butt. Both kids were back at school , school went back the day before but my boy stayed off for the first day , still recovering from his poorly ear . He had a type of abscess behind his eardrum which eventually burst , leaking blood and pus for a few days , but thankfully he is now back to his usual mischievous and cheeky self .
Anyway, my first day of peace was spent in stitchy bliss , well mostly , I had a lot of back stitch to do ,lol .
So , I got myself a finishThis Tatty Teddy has now been sent to Love Quilts UK , to be included in one of their named quilts. Not usually the sort of thing I like stitching . My only other Tatty was my daughters' birth sampler ,and I have to admit to making the back stitch up as I go along as the charts do my head in. I enjoyed it , but I'm glad it's finished .
I also wanted to share this lovely sunset from the other day. We are getting a few nice ones lately,as it has turned colder . Frost all day for the last few days. The sunrises are really pretty too , but we don't get a clear view from here .

I have been doing a little more stitching. I've started a small project which will hopefully become one of my RAKs, but it's slow going . Not a hard chart , I've just been distracted. I have been spending some of my Christmas money on books , so have been reading a lot. I've missed being able to buy new books so picked up quite a few . Luckily Asda have been selling some off for £1/£2 so I've gathered a few from there as well as a couple of others and also got one for Chrimbo from my hubby , so that was the first read of the year . I've just started number six, but think this might be a little harder going as it's been translated from Swedish, but we'll see.

Catch you soon .

Take care ,

That sunset should be converted into a pattern to stitch - gorgeous! Love your tatty bear - some child will love him.

I've been reading like mad too - think I'm on my 9th book since Christmas. I better slow down!

The Tatty is just so cute! But I agree that the backstitching is not the funnest part if working on it! I've stitched only one Tatty so far and I'm not repeating in near future, lol!
Have a nice read with your new books! :D
