I managed to get two more pieces stitched during Jolly July. Oliver asked if he could have a reindeer ornament this year, I took this Rudolph from another chart, it's not the sort of thing I would usually stitch but I think it looks quite cute
I also finished Button Tree by The Drawn Thread. I decided to use buttons from my stash in the end rather than buy some specially, now I need to find a frame for it.
I'm quite chuffed that I managed to finish all my Jolly July stitching. The only one that I didn't get to work on was Jacob's Christmas Stocking. That was a none starter really as I was waiting for threads which only came in the last week of July. That will now become a focus for me during August. I've already made a decent start and I'll share that in another post.
I was way ahead with my August calendar girl having finished her in June. Although I made a boo boo in the making up. Can you spot it? I forgot to make a bow by the button!
I kept looking and thinking something didn't look right, it was on display a couple of days before I realised what was missing. I don't have enough thread of that colour left to make more cording so it will have to wait now until I put another thread order in
We had Jacob for a few hours on Saturday while Joanne and Gavin took Bonnie to a drive in cinema to watch her favourite film, Frozen.
He's seven and a half months now and sitting up, he also cut two teeth this week. Growing up far too quickly
Joanne only tried him with this cup the day before, he soon got the hang of it though.
They found out recently that he has an intolerance to milk and now his formula is on prescription. It only took about four months of Joanne keep saying that he made a fuss over having his bottle and didn't settle or seem comfortable after, and the fact that he only pooped a couple of times a week for the doctor to say well yes it could be!!
He is much more settled now and sleeps better and poops, lol. It does mean though that now he is eating solids she has to be careful not to give him anything that contains milk or milk products.
But as you can see by those chubby legs and hands, he's not doing too bad on it and from what she has been told babies usually out grow it by the time they are toddlers.
See you soon
