First in 2009

Yes, my first finish for this year, considering how close 2010 is coming. It's about time. LOL I finally finished Twinkle Twilight for Natalie at about 2 am today. Just couldn't go to sleep while putting in the last of the metallics. My friend Joyce suggested I changed the colour of the border to purple rather than blue, and I'm really glad I did. It turn out fantastic and more fitting for a girl. Maria Van Scharrenburg designed this for a boy, but I think it could go either and the purple border made it a girly piece.



I told Amanda hopefully now Natalie will be able to sleep better now. You I finished Vivienne's piece when she was just a few months old and she has been a perfect sleeper. This one however had been a long journey. Natalie is now 14 months old and is still not sleeping very well at night.

It had been a long while since I last blogged. Life is just not like before anymore, very limited time with works + Natalie. There had been some major changes, I have now moved office and have a better view of some forrest and more sunlight which is great. Natalie is now walking more and more. Apart from TT, I have also done some other stitching including Cosima



and a new project Cirque des Carreaux by Ink Circle



What am I going to do next ? I'm not sure yet, I could start more projects or maybe finished some old WIPs or UFOs which most had become now.

"Twinkle Twilight" just wouldn't look very girly without all that purple -- as it is, it's spectacular! Wish I had better news about Natalie, but that does seem to be the way with the Second Child -- most First Children are perfect in every way, and the next one makes up for it. (Although I did have an aunt with *three* horrible babies, all of which cried nonstop through infancy.)

Perhaps Natalie will settle down once she learns how to talk. That's what happened with my second. Anyway, enjoy them both, as much as you can -- one of them is *sure* to catch the cross-stitch bug from you!

I love your finish, and think it is very "girly". Hope it does the trick with the sleeping.

Cosima is looking great too, I love your colour combinations.er

What a beautiful finish. The purple border looks fantastic - in fact I cannot imagine it being blue.

And your works in progress are coming along nicely too.

The colors on TT look fantastic, and the photo really captures the sparkles in the fabric. Your other 2 pieces are gorgeous too. I could never stitch much when my kids were little. But they do grow up and faster than you can imagine.

This is so beautiful. Purple was a great choice (although blue is my favourite colour), I think it wouldn't have looked as good in blue. Well done!! As usual, I'm impressed.
