Just a quick update this morning ...



Here is Ashley, she's holding her roses now! I can't believe how much I am loving this piece, I have no desire to put her down at all :) I'm even hoping, that maybe I can finish her before the end of January - I've made a pact with myself that I could stitch whatever I wanted in January - but come February I will settle into my "loose" rotation.

No sitting and stitching all day today though - we're off to Wanganui to watch Cameron play cricket - him and DH are staying up there with the team for a few nights (they get home Wednesday), the boys play six games over four days - one yesterday afternoon after they arrived, two today and two tomorrow, and then one Wednesday morning before they come home. Cameron apparently played well yesterday - 2/21 off 6 overs for those who know anything about cricket - against a Hamilton team who scored 143 runs to their 75 ... so I figure those bowling figures must be pretty good ;)

Happy 18th Anniversary to DH and I (yesterday) - of course, in our typical married, family fashion - DH is away playing mother to thirteen 11-12 yo boys (he's manager for Cameron's Rep team) and I enjoyed an evening free of snoring LOL

Have a good day!
