Arthur's birth sampler
First Christmas ornament
And little Arty himself :-) He will be 8 months old tomorrow!
I finished Arthur's sampler a few weeks ago and collected it from the framers on Monday, I'm pleased with how it came out, framing is not cheap but a good framing job makes all the difference to something special.
I've stitched this same Bent Creek chart for all three grandchildren now, I love that it's not too babyish and will not look out of place in their rooms as they grow up.
His first Christmas ornament is also finished. Again, I've stitched this same one for all three of them on their first Christmas.
Jenny hasn't gone back to work yet so I don't get to spend much time with Arthur on his own yet but on Saturday they took Oliver to the cinema and out for tea so I got to spend all afternoon with him, he was no trouble at all, he is such a lovely pleasant little boy, and he loves to be snuggled :-)
I finish work tomorrow, so I have a lovely extended Christmas break to look forward to, and I need it!
It's our Christmas 'do' next Friday but i'm giving it a miss again this year. Years ago we used to have a proper sit down meal, which was nice and fairly civilised, but for the last few years it's been a buffet at one of the local pubs, not really my thing at all to be honest.
Tomorrow is Christmas Jumper day and I was tasked with organising it, not that it needs much organising, more a case of putting up posters and sending emails round letting everyone know.
The MD is giving a £25 gift voucher to the silliest creation, but the response hasn't been good I have to say, so we will see tomorrow. I will be shaking my collection tin at them again in the morning, the money collected will go to Save the Children so it's all in a good cause.
Hopefully I will have a little more time next week so I'll try and catch up with you all again then.
