Crazy Day 8

Today was a lovely relaxing lazy day for us all, the children go back to school tomorrow so its back to watching the clock and running round…sighhhhh, can  you tell I like the holidays..wonder how long till the next one ..

Anyway this afternoon was spent with the children catching up on some new films they got I sat and stitched on crazy day 8, then I switched to some knitting and then tonight onto Ruairí’s present…it was wonderful and I can’t remember such a relaxing day. This week started off hairy and mixed in with a lot of sleepless nights I was very pleased to see my stitching hours for the week add up to 27hrs 55mins and my knitting hours added up to 6 hrs. With so many starts my knitting hours have been suffering but this will even itself out I’m sure.

Time I think for some pictures now that I’ve bored you some lol…
This here is my Renaissance Rose by Joan Elliott that I started, I have to say I loved stitching this tiny bit lol and can’t wait to get back to it, this is a project just for me! (hard to believe)

Tiny start on Renaissance Rose

This here is Ruairi’s birthday piece so far.It is LHN’s A Pirates Life. For some reason the going on this is slow and I can’t just figure out why? His birthday is this Thursday and I really have my doubts on whether it shall be finished on time, its taken me a week to get this far and I’m just a little under halfway. I think some tiny starts for the rest of the 15 and crack on with this shall be the order of the week!

LHN’s A Pirates Life.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments all this week they have been lovely to read and mean a lot. The updates shall settle down after this week lol. I haven’t forgotten my book update I am getting right stuck into it and although not my usual style of book I am enjoying it, it has my interest! More I promise on that during this week.

Happy stitching,

    Hi Ruth, A start is a start. Looks good. I love A Pirates Life. I have all of this series, but have yet to stitch them. lolI have faith in you that you will get it done by Thursday.Linda

  3. Yeah I'm a little sad to be going back to work as well but then I've been home a little too long… Or maybe I needed to get out and do more, which I didn't. That pirate piece is going to be so cute when stitched.

    I am sure you are able to finish the Pirate life in time :)Good start with Joan Elliott's! It's a bigger start than mine in 7th day of CJC, hahaHelena

    That is some good amount of hours for both stitching and knitting seeing as you have had a rocky week Ruth!I am sure you will get Ruairi's present done on time – just keep plugging away and all of a sudden it will be nearly done!Wishing you speedy needles for the Pirates, L xx

  6. Thoeria says:

    Lovely start Ruth! And great progress with Ruari's pirates – I'm sure that with a bit of luck and some smoking needles you're going to get it done :-)And to the question you'd asked – I'm busy reading an Authurian (is that a word?) mystery by Ariana Franklin called Relics of the Dead :)Look forward to seeing your next installment!

    The little boy in Pirates Life looks adorable! Good luck finishing the rest of the piece and have fun with the rest of your starts!

  8. I love a Pirate's Life Ruth. So will Ruairi. Knowing you, you will be working ever so hard this week to try and finish it. Good for you, doing a nice stitching project for yourself. I am pulling flosses for a small for myself too. It has been too long since I have done one for myself. I am glad you are interested in the book. Hang in there, it is good.
