Quiet Sunday Anyone?

I wish. I am about ready to strangle a couple of girls sitting behind me - the littlest one is howling that she is finished ... finished howling that is. Because I turned off the TV because they wouldn't stop bickering. Lucky DH sleeping until 9.00am because he can ignore all other noises, lucky DH watching soccer so the girls vacate that room and come and annoy me, lucky DH gone the other five days of the week, and not having to put up with that every day! Right. Vent over - sometimes you've just got to get it out ;)

...

Thank you for ALL the comments on Rose Arbour - wow! it is so nice to get so many compliments ... I love the blogging world.

...

strangling is still sounding like a good option ... deeeeep breaths ...

...

Another small finish -

Little House Needleworks - Kitty Cottage Sampler
Stitched on 27ct "Clay" evenweave



...

Today I've got the dreaded Soccer Club AGM - this is the worst part of my job, I hate speaking in front of people, and I hate being responsible for all that money - so today I get to present the accounts, a combination of both things - oh yay ... all I can say is at least by the end of the day it will be over!

...

I'm having paper thrown at me now ... more deeeeeeep breaths ...

...

and later I get to choose between stitching Faery Tales as per my written down rotation for February, or October Skye Sampler so I can finish it ... as per my February goals - oh, decisions, decisions ... maybe I'll see how the AGM goes first! LOL

...

and finally I have a little girl on my knee having a cuddle, maybe she got the message I mean business? at last? ... until next time, anyway ;)

I know you really do love your kids Lisa. But I also know just how trying kids can be.

Love your kitty finish... real cute.

Back to the packing, and looking forward to hearing how the AGM went.

Don't you just love little girls LOL. Your Rose Arbor turned out fantastic! I remember when you started that back on PP! I like how it looks on that fabric, I have a piece of that myself..Hmm.. I think the kitty one is adorable also, I am really loving all the Little House Needlework charts I've seen lately... must stop buying though, I have been out of control lately. Love reading your blog Lisa!

What a great finish, Lisa. I just love that piece, especially since my Cooper has recently developed a "nip" addiction:)

Hopefully, the girls don't push too many of your buttons. Isn't it amazing that they can push you to the edge and then come up with that adorable little smile as if nothing had evern happened.

I hope your girls calmed down!

Aw, what a traumatic thing for little one to lose TV - traumatic for you, that is!! Yikes!!

Love your little kitty design :-)

Hi, this is he first time I visit your blog.
I saw your latest finishes and they all look great! I specially like the Mirabilia Rose Arbour. The Mirabilia RR looks great too. I'm sure your friend will be very happy when she gets it back.

Kitty Cottage Sampler is soooo cute!!

Hmmm, I was up at 5:45 with DS this morning and DH got up in time for the French toast that I cooked for breakfast. What's up with DHs getting to stay in bed?
