I'm not entirely sure that applies to boys, does it?? But he sure was sweet way back then ...
Actually, he's still pretty sweet, just in a more ''blokey'' way :) Just like to know one thing, though - how did those 16 years go so fast?? Makes you think, doesn't it. Happy birthday, Jake - may you achieve everything you work hard for, may you always live life with a sense of adventure, be truthful in all that you do, be kind to your friends and don't break too many bones when you are hurtling down mountains at ridiculous speeds!!!
In between making beds and breakfasts, I've done a little more stitching - and I've finished the sampler - I love it:)) I'm thinking I might have a go at framing it myself - any tips?
While I was finishing off the sampler, I was thinking about my next project, as you do. Way back, who knows when, certainly pre-Dunedin days, I started a gorgeous Lavender and Lace cross stitch called ''The Spirit of Christmas''. I worked on it solidly for a few months, and then for some reason it got side lined. Well, how's this for discipline - I found it, and I'm finishing it:) When I pulled it from it's hidey place, I realised I still really loved it, and it definitely needed to be finished. So that's what I've been working on for the past few nights. He's pretty gorgeous, don't you think!
I think I may just have to stitch a little more on Santa right now :) It's like a winter's day outside, the child is working, and I've got about an hour before I have to begin birthday dinner preparations. So really, what else is there to do:)
