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.

Updates on everything(now with pics)

Its been a busy couple of weeks for me. We had yet more snow which was awesome, we had so much fun and since the schools were on half term break we didn't ave to cut the play short. The one thing that was missing was our rescue dog. He still wasn't fit to be re-homed at that point. Good news is.... Three weeks after choosing him we finally got him home.

He is such a sweet little thing, doesn't bother a soul and puts up with the girls pestering him without a complaint.

On the stitching front I have made some progress on my HEAD project, sister angels. The problem is those cheeky confetti stitches, I am forever changing colours lol...
Jewelry wise I have been playing with macrame and playing with wire too. I purchased another one of Corra's tutorials and gave it a go (check out her blog on my sidebar) problem I had was i didn't have the recommended wire size so I had to use a thicker wire. I think I may have to try it with a thinner wire again when I have a chance.
I am working on a macrame necklace just now too, unfortunately there isn't much to show yet but hopefully over the weekend I will get more done.

Course work wise things are going well, the module I am working on is about child development and I am really enjoying the reading for a change lol...
My hubby is going well with his degree, he got 93% for one of his exams, the rest of the results are still to come, but isn't he just a smarty pants lol... I am so proud of him.

I love that Rory is a rescue! And he looks like such a sweet fellow - I am so glad he is fitting into your household so well. I have 4 rescue dogs (all standard poodles) and they are simply the best. Best of luck.
