Hi my name is Louise (Lou) and I am a craftaholic. I am in my mid twenties and live in wonderful Scotland. My addictions are jewelry making and cross stitching, I do knit and love to try other things, but these are the two that have stuck. I have been stitching ever since i can remember, but only started stitching properly when i was pregnant with my first daughter. I manage to get my fix in between looking after my two angels and hubby.

Course work birthdays and progress.

It was my oldest girls birthday on Monday, I cant believe my baby is 4. It seems like it was yesterday she was born. We had a little party for her with her cousins and we all had a ball.

This is her on her new bike, I think we should have got her the bigger size lol...

And my baby girl who is 2 trying on her sisters birthday crown. She is such a cutie.

And my two girls with their cousin and the cake (which I am proud to say I made myself).
I had a new module for my degree start this week too so less craft time again, I will have to fit some in though or I wont be able to cope, that and the fact that my parents wont get their christmas present.
This is my progress so far

Yeah ok it looks like a big grey blob but it is about a quarter of the way done and works up really quickly. This is what it should look like when its finished

I have also gotten a chance to play with some beads too, I wanted to practice my wire loops and found the best way to do that was to make a bracelet. So here it is.
Hopefully I wont find myself too bogged down with this course that I cant play with my thread wire and beads any time soon.

Your girls are so cute! I wouldn't be able to work for wanting to kiss their sweet little faces off! :-) I always wanted a girl but wouldn't trade my two boys for anything...well, not on a good day.
I love your bracelet. Having worked with wire I know how hard it is to get it all so perfect and the job you did was incredible. I am so jealous! :-)
