Long time no see...

It's been over a year since my last post. But in my defense a lot has happened since then. Being the most important and the reason of me disappearing, the birth of my daughter, who is now a very active toddler. Which means my "me" time was reduced to night time, after she is asleep, and only if I'm not busy working, but I'm still trying to either knit or stitch a bit whenever I have a bit of free time, on the rare occasion when my little monkey takes a nap during the day, and on my days off if I'm not wrecked from all the daily chasing after her...
So this is what i've done since the last time I shared anything...

Few days ago I was able to finally finish my daughter's birth sampler
All that is left to do is wash it and frame it.

And these are the knitted pieces I've done.




Thank you very much if you are still around and following me, I'll try to post more often from now on

Happy stitches
Sara

And this is why I never delete anyone from my Reader! Welcome back!

The photos of the birth sampler are HUGE on your blog, like ten times real size but I can see it OK in my Reader so I can honestly say it's lovely. And well done on completing it before she starts school!
She is such a cutie in the knitted dress, very sweet and a good reason for not being around so much.
