It is 3 years since Jamie and Louis the twins were born, and it has taken me that long to finish their birth samplers. I hang my head in shame, the previous grandchildren all received their cross-stitch pictures within a few weeks of their birth, but completing the boys cross-stitch has been an epic. I blame it on the boys and Izzy all being born in 2007 and me going into overload as far as my embroidery is concerned, that or discovering games on the internet! Oh well, at least I had them finished and framed ready for their 3rd birthday. Now I’ve just got to get started on Evie’s and then Joshua’s.

Thanks to the school holidays Hubby and I have been inundated with the rugrats, in fact Hubby was brilliant last weekend, giving up the opportunity to play on a championship golf course to help me look after 5 energetic children who had come for a sleepover. His comment, when they had returned to their parents, was ‘ Lets just do one family at a time in future’. He’s not a bad judge, absolutely exhausting.

Still on the grandchild front, and just so that he isn’t left out, a photo of Joshua plus the birthday boys.
