An Arrival

 Hello folks.

The wonderful news from here is that Tiny Needles has arrived.  She was a healthy 9lbs 14oz, the same as her sister.  She was a water birth at home, an experience that Miss Clicky and Mr S-I-L really enjoyed.

Miss Clicky was 10 days overdue, so I suggested that Baby Needles came to stay with us until something happened.  We had a lovely day, I used Baby Needles as child labour and got her planting Sweet Peas.

With the planting over we went for a long walk in the winter sunshine and pretended that we were really tall.

A sleepover, and the next morning we got the happy news.

I realised that I haven't shown you the fairy set I made for Baby Needles for Christmas.

A sparkly crown.

And a tutu and wand.

I have 2 new projects on the go.

Following on from my 52 weeks of stitches, I have embarked on a stitch a day hoop, embroidering a picture or word for every day of the year.  This is a big undertaking for me, not least because finding something to stitch for every day is tricky.

My other project is a new cardigan.  This is a Drops Pattern called Mandal Jacket, I'm using British Naturals yarn from Woolyknit.

That's me for now, I'm getting as many cuddles with Tiny and Baby Needles as I can and having alovely time planning my flower garden for this year.

Have fun............Clicky Needles.
