One Happy Son

Yes we've a happy DS2 as now that the Darcy photostitch is finally finished I've started on his dragon. Here is Darcy all stitched up, she just needs sending to be framed now.


Luke's dragon is from a book by Lesley Teare. It's stitched on red which at first I was unsure of as I'd tons of plain already in my stash but he wanted red. Over the last few months I've been picking up the threads and fabrics for it. I started it Saturday evening when Luke had gone to bed, the following morning he went downstairs and saw it on my Lowery with some stitches done...we could hear the screams of excitement everywhere in the house LOL!  Now he checks every morning to see how much I've stitched....heaven forbid I want to catch up on my SAL's!  This is what it's going to look like finished 

And this is my progress so far - not a lot for 3 nights work but I've enjoyed working on it. Makes a change from the skin tones of Darcy anyway!!


I'm also working on a small gift for my son...or should that be on behalf of my son as he picked the design he wants stitching for his girlfriend. Yes you read that right, our 6yr old DS1 has had a girlfriend for the last few terms at school. She's absolutely lovely and as I've told DH at 6 it's so innocent that it's sweet.

DD will be going to full time nursery after the Easter break so I'll have 2 1/2 days of freedom :-)  I can see housework getting done super fast and some extra stitching on MY projects being snuck in *happy sigh*  All I need now is DS1 to see a project that he absolutely must have stitched for him LOL!

Thank you for all your lovely comments, it has cheered me up immensely after the last horrible couple of months I've been having. Happy stitching xx
