Movement is the photo prompt today and I was able to capture this photo of Connor playing with the Thomas train set at our house - please excuse the awful flowery carpet which I am hoping will be replaced this year when and if it gets decorated. Movement is also the reason we have had the pleasure of looking after Connor today as his parents are moving house over the weekend.
We have played with the train set, taken Max for a walk and called in to see both sets of great grandparents and had a play in the park. While Grandad was keeping Connor occupied with his model railway layout I was able to cut out some of the dresden shapes needed for the July Craftsy BOM which with any luck might get completed over the weekend. It's been really nice having him and it will be really quiet when he has gone home as he is a real chatterbox - I think both DH and myself may have thought we've gone deaf then!
Yesterday evening I spent going through some old Cross Stitch Gold magazines looking for Christmas stocking charts and thankfully I have managed to find four different one so that each of the grandchildren can have their own design. I'm joining my blogging friend Julie from Julie's Stitchyknitter Journal in February in a Christmas stocking SAL as we both want to stitch stockings and this will keep us both motivated. Hopefully I'll have at least one stocking done for Christmas 2013. Ideally I'd like to get two done this year for our eldest son's children.
