Christmas stitching in July

My husband and I were on team Green when expecting baby number 3 this year. I have cross stitched Shepherd's Bush Christmas stockings for my other two children so aimed to do one for my third baby in time for his/her's first Christmas December 2010. I took a punt last year and started stitching a "girly" one called Elisabeth. What was a woman to do with a girly one when she has just had a baby boy? Stitch it for herself of course. Here is a photo of the unironed stitchery (the photo is skewed as holding a baby makes taking a photo hard) awaiting charms and to be sewn into a stocking. So now I'm going to be the proud owner of my own Christmas stocking. I have to get busy now and stitch Tom's one which is titled "Reed" in time for Christmas.

Thre weeks ago I had to farewell our beloved cat, Lily. She was 13years and her body gave up on her. She was our first baby and my constant companion. I miss you puss!
