Welcome Elijah John Henry..... Long post, lots of pics
Here's our beautiful new arrival, Elijah John Henry, who came as planned on the 8th January at 10.15 weighing in at 9lb 3oz!! Yes I do have a habit of giving birth to big babies! Lily weighed 9 lb. I'm recovering well from the section - a lot better than last time. We only got home on Monday due to him having to stay in hospital an extra couple of days as he had jaundice. He is fine now though. He is absolutely adorable and is very cuddle. He likes his cuddles. I'm very tired as I'm only just starting to catch up with sleep after having none in the hospital for 6 days!. I did take some stitching in thinking I might have to wait a while for the csection but they did it straight away.
Here is a video of his first cry!!! Just as he was taken from me. (hope it works)
Since I have been away I have started to recieve some lovely goodies through the post from the cross stitchers lottery.
Here's what I have rec'd so far:
This is from Stephanie which is absolutely stunning. She even sent some extras - the fabric of which I took into hospital with me. Thank you Stephanie.
This is from Cheryl who also sent me a couple of baby vests too. Thanks Cheryl. I love it.
This is from Carol which is so lovely and is set on a real wooden box!! Very impressive. I can store my threads in there. Thank you Carol.
This is from Edgar. Great fabric and my favourite Season. Thank you Edgar.
This is from Dawn who also sent some extras. I really need that ribbon lol! Thank you Dawn - it's fab!
This is from Aniza - so sweet and I love the fabric colour. Thank you Aniza.
This is from Yasmin. I adore the thread colour. Thank you Yasmin!!
Phew Loads of goodies.
Also as if that is not enough to show I also have finished the Simple Little Quaker design. Here it is stitched on 32 count lavender mist belfast linen using Dinky Dyes Amethyst thread.
Also I can show you what I stitched for Jeanne for the Frosty Friends exchange as she has recieved it now. It is by Beardie Designs and is called Winter pocket. I sent some extras too but didn't photograph them.
So going to be a bit busy now but will try to get on as soon as I can. All the best everyone. xx
