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.

I must be getting lazy....

I dont have much to update today, I have been a bit demotivated with everything but playing on-line games. I have been Pogo mad the past week or so lol...

I am feeling much better today though and am planning to get a new start finished today. I started this with the hope of having it finished for UK mothers day (22nd March lol). It is for my mother in law who has been so good to us and helping us out big time while my hubby has been at Uni.




I am planing on turning it into a cushion, which should be interesting since I have no idea how to use a sewing machine. I might have to try sewing by hand first before I take the plunge.

My sister angels project hasn't really been touched, there is slightly more progress than in my last picture but not enough to show a picture of.

My Mum has given me some nice little stones that I can use to practice making jewelry with. Some of them were strung on elastic as a bracelet, so I may just restring them for mum or find another interesting way of using them. Either way she is gonna have a lot of new jewelry to wear.



I was comic relief last month too, Hollie's nursery class all looked fab, they wore their PJ's to nursery and had to have their noses painted red to help raise money for the charity. I never got a picture of Hollie but Jamie was not happy to be left out and got the nursery staff to paint her nose too. She kept her nose painted long enough to get a snap of her...

She looks so cute! You've got a good start on your Mother - it'll come together and be much appreciated, I'm sure!

OH my gosh, your little one is SO cute. That red nose is adorable. What a cute little girl she is.
And your mothers day stitching looks great too. Looking forward to see the pillow. Your mum in law will love and cherish it.
