Picture of Sweetpea Gazebo Sampler

I took two photos - the photo I took of the whole thing is very hard to see the detail.

Stitched on 28ct Jobelyn, Pearl Grey. 8 Days stitching, 37hrs (it's a bit scary to average that out - I can plead a VERY quiet couple of days at work! LOL).

Today I need to carry on stuffing envelopes for soccer and do some baking ready for school starting tomorrow. One of my "goals" (I refuse to make resolutions) this year is to avoid processed foods in their lunchboxes as much as possible ... which means I have to get busy today making sure I have other things to put in them.

I can't get into my two favourite boards on Ezboard, one parenting one and one stitching one - they are both membership only ones, not public, so I wonder if that is the problem.

DH is still in bed asleep ... it annoys me that once I'm awake, I'm awake. He can sleep through Charlotte jumping, giggling, poking ... the whole lot, and if he DOES wake - as soon as we're gone he goes straight back to sleep ... I think it's nearly time to send Charlotte down there ...

Back to stitching the lighthouse kit today ... I'm supposed to be doing 5hrs between small projects, or 5hrs between 10hr lots of a big project ... I didn't touch it while I was stitching Sweetpea Gazebo so I have a wee bit of catching up to do!

I already left a comment on the BB...but I really love this piece! You did a fantastic job on it! I almost wish I hadn't seen it, because now I have another thing to add to my wish list :)

You have my sympathies on making lunches again. I hate getting lunches ready. I'm glad I don't have to for DS yet just DH and I.
