Ye Olde Bricke Walle

Last week I ran into a brick wall a bit with Tash & Kids and needed a little break.  I got my rug out that I am making and gave that a bit of a run 🙂

I really must start getting photo’s that face in the same direction.

Simon Cat seems to like me making this one and comes for cuddles.  I think when its completed he will probably call it his bed to be fair.  Mind you he may have to fight Squeaky Cat for it.  Squeak hasn’t found it yet so currently its all Simons.  Sadly I forgot to get a photo of Simon cuddling it.

On the weekend I picked up Tash & Kids again and managed to get in 900 stitches before Sunday bedtime.

Not a bad effort I feel 🙂

This week I managed 400 stitches already and a little diamond painting but as I am going to Adele tomorrow night then 21 Pilots on Saturday night I fear that there may not be much further. Still Sunday is going to be a rest day so you never know 😉

Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
