Cross Monday Week 44

Phew!  I feel like I have achieved a lot this week.  All I have left on this section is to complete the bars.  Part of me feels that I should leave them for when I have friends over, or when I next get a train, as they don't require much concentration.  But another part of me wants to 'complete' this section...

My next quandary is, well, the next section.  The patterns I have for letters are all 11 stitches high.  This gives me plenty of space to make a second vine, and complete all of LittleOwl's name, and date of birth with some left over.  The thing is, that vine at the bottom is 22 stitches high, so I'm worried that the letters will look too small.  So I'm looking for some bigger letters - 18-20 stitches high maybe.

Wish me luck!

Cross Monday (Tuesday) Week 43

Tuesday is nearly Monday right?  I'm getting better!  To be fair I did take this photo last night but Papa Owl was busy on the laptop so I didn't get to post.  I feel like I'm steaming ahead at the moment, and I may even finish this section in the next couple of weeks!

Show and Tell - Dinosaurs

Little Owl's nursery have a show and tell session every day, and the children are encouraged to bring in items from home on the theme of the week.  For one reason or another, this week is the first time Little Owl has been able to participate in the show and tell since she started at the nursery in November.  The theme for this week is dinosaurs!

It just so happens that Mummy has a degree in Geology....

This is my best find after three years of field trips.  I am rather proud of it.

Next week's theme is EARTH.  Any ideas?

Cross Monday (Wednesday) Week 42

Week 42!  I have now been stitching for more weeks than I was pregnant with LittleOwl!  That is a long time!  As you can see, I am now finishing off the right hand side of this section, it looks such a small gap but I know it is many weeks work.  

I have set my self a few new years challenges - not quite resolutions, but they will take time away from this project... so I want to give this as much as a push as I can over the next couple of weeks....
