And again! Almost a fortnight!

Well I do have a good excuse.

She is 2 1/2

Lauren decided to pull down a cup of cold coffee and throw it all over my laptop just as it was shutting down. Needless to say I was not especially happy with her. It got no better.

She also manage to destroy my Golden Buddha piece. My eldest daughter brought her down one morning and Lauren rooted out my scissors and attacked the Golden Buddha. And there are now several holes in it where they cannot be patched or repaired.

In other news. I have been very busy with lots of stuff. Endless trips to banks and solicitors to sort out my house move. The good news is we are ready to exchange contracts once Hubs has signed the mortgage deed which should be the early part of the week.

While I have had no computer I have been sorting out and packing up this house where I can and also I have
put in some work on Avarice.

I am about halfway through page 3 of her now, half a skip of rubbish and clutter out of the house and more than a dozen boxes packed.

I actually feel like we are getting somewhere with this move now. Its so close I can almost reach out and touch it.

Stitchy update tomorrow maybe



  1. Oh, Nicola, I'm so sorry to hear your piece was destroyed. How far along were you? I'd be so mad!!! I'm glad you're getting somewhere with the move though. That's a good thing. Can't wait to see a pic of Avarice!!

  2. Oh no, what a terrible thing to happen, first the laptop and then the stitching! I sure hope the little girl learned something from these experiences.

  3. oh no...not is really very annoying..
    sending you hugs dear..lot of them..
    keep well xx

  4. Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your Golden Buddha! I sure hope nothing happens to Avarice, or any other stitching project you have! No scissors for Lauren until she is 10!

  5. Ahhh little darlings aren't they:-( Good luck with your move!

  6. I feel your pain. I have a 2.5 year old too. My large projects are kept well away from him! And the 8 year old knows what would happen if HE left them anywhere where the small one could get them.
    We have tried to "voice" control the small one so he stops when we say No rather than relying on physical punishments (where you have to be within arms reach!!).
    Good luck with the move.
