Starting Small

Hello all.
I'm returning to stitching after having a bit of a break. I've been cross stitching since I was a small child & up until last year I had my own successful Needlework Shop. I sold my shop when I found out I was expecting twins. The twins were born in May 2008 & apart from the picture below I haven't stitched a thing.

I thought i'd get back into it with a small design. I picked out two little birth samplers to do after the twins were born & I started on my daughters first. I managed to stitch for probably about a month before it became impossible to get anything done, let alone stitching.

The design called Baby Love & is one of the Kittens range by Cinnamon Cat. It's been a UFO now for about 14 months & I plan to stitch at least one evening a week & hopefully get some lunch time stitching in too.
I love reading everyones progress on here. Happy stitching.

What delicate colours in the design, i am sure you will get it finished now with the support of this group. So glad you have joined us. Best of luck with the stitching.

I'm grandma to a set of twins and can appreciate your lack of time. But I'm sure with this blog you'll get back stitching those samplers in no time and we'll be congratulating you on your finish.
I'll be watching for your next post.
Happy stitching.

Very sweet!
I have twin brothers and I remember my mom and dad talking about what it was like with 2 babies at one time. You have your hand full! Enjoy.
